Interferon alfa-2b has an antiviral, immunomodulatory, antiproliferative and antibacterial effect.
The antiviral effect is mediated by the activation of a number of intracellular enzymes that inhibit virus replication. The immunomodulatory effect is manifested, first of all, by the enhancement of cell-mediated reactions of the immune system, which increases the efficiency of the immune response against viruses, intracellular parasites and cells that underwent tumor transformation.
This is achieved through the activation of CD8 + T-killers, NK cells (natural killers), increased differentiation of B-lymphocytes and their production of antibodies, activation of the monocyte-macrophage system and phagocytosis, as well as increased expression of molecules of the main histocompatibility complex of type I, which increases the likelihood recognition of infected cells by cells of the immune system.
Activation of leukocytes contained in all layers of the mucous membrane under the influence of interferon ensures their active participation in the elimination of pathological foci; in addition, due to the influence of interferon, the production of secretory immunoglobulin A is restored. The antibacterial effect is mediated by reactions of the immune system enhanced by the influence of interferon.
Taurine contributes to the normalization of metabolic processes and tissue regeneration, has a membrane-stabilizing and immunomodulating effect. Being a strong antioxidant, taurine directly interacts with reactive oxygen species, the excessive accumulation of which contributes to the development of pathological processes.
Taurine helps preserve the biological activity of interferon, enhancing the therapeutic effect of the drug.
