Mechanism of action
Genferon is a combined drug whose effect is due to its constituent components. It has a local and systemic effect.
Interferon alpha-2 has antiviral, antibacterial and immunomodulatory effects. Under the influence of interferon alpha-2, the activity of natural killer cells, T-helpers, phagocytes, as well as the intensity of B-lymphocyte differentiation, increases in the body. The activation of leukocytes contained in all layers of the mucous membrane ensures their active participation in the elimination of the primary pathological foci and ensures the restoration of production of secretory immunoglobulin A.
Interferon alfa-2 also directly inhibits the replication and transcription of chlamydia viruses.
Taurine, which is part of the drug, has regenerating, reparative, membrane-and hepatoprotective, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties.
Anesthesin is a local anesthetic.Reduces the permeability of the cell membrane to sodium ions, displaces Calcium ions from receptors located on the inner surface of the membrane, blocks the conduction of nerve impulses. It prevents the appearance of pain impulses in the endings of the sensory nerves and their passage through the nerve fibers.
When vaginal or rectal administration, interferon alpha-2 is absorbed through the mucous membrane, enters the surrounding tissues, into the lymphatic system, providing a systemic effect. Also, due to partial fixation on the cells of the mucous membrane has a local effect.
The decrease in the level of serum interferon 12 hours after the administration of GENFERON necessitates its repeated administration.

GENFERON is most effective in combination with drugs (including antibiotics and other antimicrobials) used to treat urogenital diseases. It is recommended to simultaneously use Vitamins E and C, enhancing the effect of interferon. Non-narcotic analgesics and anticholinesterase drugs enhance the action of anesthesin. Anesthesin reduces the antibacterial activity of sulfonamides.
