Description

Genferon Pharmacodynamics
GENFERON® is a combined preparation, the action of which is caused by its constituent components. It has topical and systemic effects.
Recombinant human interferon alfa-2b, produced by Escherichia coli strain, into which, by genetic engineering methods, human interferon alfa-2b gene was introduced, is the part of GENFERON® preparation.
Interferon alpha-2b has antiviral, immunomodulatory, antiproliferative and antibacterial effects. Antiviral effect is mediated by activation of a number of intracellular enzymes that inhibit viral replication. Immunomodulatory effect is primarily manifested by strengthening the cell-mediated reactions of the immune system, which increases the effectiveness of the immune response against viruses, intracellular parasites and cells that have undergone tumor transformation. This is achieved by activation of CD8+ T-rollers, NK-cells (natural killer cells), increasing differentiation of B-lymphocytes and their production of antibodies, activation of monocytic-macrophage system and phagocytosis as well as increasing expression of molecules of the main histocompatibility complex of type I, which increases the possibility of recognition of infected cells by the cells of immune system. Activation under the influence of interferon of leukocytes contained in all layers of the mucous membrane provides their active participation in liquidation of pathological foci; besides, due to the influence of interferon, restoration of production of secretory immunoglobulin A is achieved. Antimicrobial effect is mediated by immune system reactions enhanced under the influence of interferon.
Taurine promotes normalization of metabolic processes and tissue regeneration, has membranostabilizing and immunomodulatory effects. As a strong antioxidant, taurine directly interacts with reactive oxygen species, the excessive accumulation of which contributes to pathological processes. Taurine helps to preserve the biological activity of interferon, increasing the therapeutic effect of the drug. Benzocaine (anesthesin) is a local anesthetic. It reduces the permeability of the cell membrane for sodium ions, displaces calcium ions from the receptors located on the inner surface of the membrane, blocks the conduction of nerve impulses. Prevents the occurrence of pain impulses in the endings of sensitive nerves and their conduction along the nerve fibers. It has only local effect without being absorbed into the systemic bloodstream.
