ALTEVIR (Interferon alfa-2b) has antiviral, immunomodulatory, antiproliferative and antitumor effects. Interferon alpha-2b, interacting with specific receptors on the cell surface, initiates a complex chain of changes inside the cell, including the induction of the synthesis of a number of specific cytokines and enzymes, disrupts the synthesis of viral RNA and virus proteins in the cell. The result of these changes is nonspecific antiviral and antiproliferative activity associated with the prevention of viral replication in the cell, inhibition of cell proliferation and the immunomodulatory effect of interferon. Interferon alpha-2b stimulates the process of antigen presentation to immunocompetent cells, has the ability to stimulate the phagocytic activity of macrophages, as well as the cytotoxic activity of T cells and natural killer cells involved in antiviral immunity. Prevents cell proliferation, especially tumor cells. It has a depressing effect on the synthesis of some oncogenes, leading to inhibition of tumor growth.
