Reduces the concentration of viruses in the affected tissues, influences on the system of endogenous interferons and related cytokines, induces the formation of endogenous “early” interferons (IFN &alpha/&beta) and gamma interferon (IFN-&gamma).
It stimulates the humoral and cellular immune response. Increases the production of antibodies (including secretory IgA), activates the function of T-effectors and T-helpers (Tx) and normalizes their ratio. Increases functional reserve Tx and other cells involved in the immune response. Is inducer of mixed-Tx1 – and Tx2-type immune response: it increases the production of cytokines Tx1 (IFN-&gamma, IL-2) and Tx2 (IL-4, 10), normalizes (modulates) the balance Tx1/Tx2-activity. Increases the functional activity of phagocytes and EK-cells (natural killers). Has antimutagenic properties.
