Description

Cycloferon 150 mg tablets Pharmacodynamics
Cycloferon is a low molecular weight inducer of interferon, which determines a wide range of its biological activity (antiviral, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, etc.).
Cycloferon is effective against herpes viruses, influenza and other pathogens of acute respiratory diseases. It has a direct antiviral effect by suppressing viral reproduction at early stages (1st-5th days) of infection, reducing infectivity of viral progeny, resulting in formation of defective viral particles. Increases nonspecific resistance of the organism against viral and bacterial infections.

– influenza and acute respiratory diseases;
– Herpetic infection.
In children from four years of age in the treatment:
