Anaferon Pharmacodynamics
During preventive and therapeutic use the drug has immunomodulatory and antiviral action. Efficacy against influenza viruses, parainfluenza, herpes simplex viruses of types 1 and 2 (labial herpes, genital herpes), other herpes viruses (chickenpox, infectious mononucleosis), enteroviruses, tick-borne encephalitis virus, rotavirus, coronavirus, calicivirus, adenovirus, respiratory syncytial virus (PC virus) is established experimentally and clinically. The drug decreases the virus concentration in the affected tissues, affects the system of endogenous interferons and associated cytokines, induces formation of endogenous “early” interferons (IFN a/?) and gamma interferon (IFN ?).
Stimulates humoral and cellular immune response. It increases the production of antibodies (including secretory IgA), activates the functions of T-actors, T-helpers (Tx), and normalizes their ratio. Increases the functional reserve of Tx and other cells involved in the immune response. It is an inducer of mixed Txl and Tx2-type immune response: it increases the production of Txl cytokines (IFN ?, IL-2) and Tx2 (IL-4, 10), normalizes (modulates) the balance of Tx1/Tx2 activities. Increases the functional activity of phagocytes and natural killer cells (EC cells). It has antimutagenic properties.
