Mechanism of action
Genferon is a combined drug whose effect is due to its constituent components. It has a local and systemic effect.
Interferon alfa-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.
Taurinewhich is part of the preparation, has regenerating, reparative, membrane-and hepatoprotective, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties.
Benzocaine is a local anesthetic. Reduces the permeability of cell membranes for 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.
