packaging 37 g bottle
Antiviral. Specifically suppresses in vitro influenza A and B viruses (Influenzavirus A, B), including the highly pathogenic subtypes A (H1N1) pdm09 and A (H5N1), as well as other ARVI pathogens (Coronavirus) associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome ( SARS), rhinovirus (Rhinovirus), adenovirus (Adenovirus), respiratory syncytial virus (Pneumovirus) and parainfluenza virus (Paramyxovirus)).
According to the antiviral mechanism of action, it belongs to fusion (fusion) inhibitors, interacts with the hemagglutinin of the virus and prevents the fusion of the lipid membrane of the virus and cell membranes.
Possesses interferon-inducing activity – in a mouse study, interferon induction was observed after 16 hours, and high interferon titers remained in the blood until 48 hours after administration. Stimulates cellular and humoral immunity reactions: increases the number of lymphocytes in the blood, especially T-cells (CD3), increases the number of T-helpers (CD4), without affecting the level of T-suppressors (CD8), normalizes the immunoregulatory index, stimulates the phagocytic function of macrophages and increases the number of natural killers (NK cells).
Therapeutic efficacy in viral infections is manifested in a decrease in the duration and severity of the course of the disease and its main symptoms, as well as in a decrease in the incidence of complications associated with a viral infection and exacerbations of chronic bacterial diseases.
Refers to low-toxic drugs (LD50> 4 g / kg). It does not have any negative effects on the human body when administered orally in recommended doses.
Pharmacokinetics. It is rapidly absorbed and distributed to organs and tissues. The maximum concentration in blood plasma when taking the drug at a dose of 200 mg of umifenovir is reached after 1 hour, the volume of distribution (Vd) is 1432 liters. Metabolized in the liver. The elimination half-life averages 11 hours.
About 40% is excreted unchanged, mainly with bile (38.9%) and, in a small amount, by the kidneys (0.12%). During the first day, 90% of the administered dose is excreted.
