NEW INTERFERON-BASED PREPARATIONS AGAINST INFLUENZA VIRUSES INCLUDING А (H5N1) TYPE

S.F. Protasova, L.I. Leont'eva, N.M. Kozlova

The review describes reasons for a new approach to the problem of urgent prophylaxis and therapy of diseases caused by various influenza and acute respiratory diseases virus strains (including avian influenza viruses) implying use of new preparations of local-resorbtive action (LRA) based on interferons α and γ as key cytokines of antiviral immunity. The peculiarity of LRA preparations is that they contain a number of substances providing maximal and sufficiently prolonged contact between low-dosage cytokines and immunocompetent cells promoting necessary activation of antiviral immunity. LRA preparations are intended for application in the "entry gate" for influenza and acute respiratory diseases where a great number of lymphocytes (tonsils) and dendritic cells (mucosal membranes) are located.
