Antiviral. Anti-inflammatory agent.
Farm action :
Ingavirin is an antiviral drug. It is active against influenza viruses of type A (A / H1N1, including “swine” A / H1N1 swl, A / H3N2, A / H5N1) and type B, adenovirus infection, parainfluenza, respiratory syncytial infection.
The antiviral mechanism of action is associated with suppression of virus reproduction at the stage of the nuclear phase, and a delay in the migration of newly synthesized NP virus from the cytoplasm into the nucleus.
It has a modulating effect on the functional activity of the interferon system: it causes an increase in the interferon content in the blood to a physiological norm, stimulates and normalizes the decreased α-interferon-producing ability of blood leukocytes, and stimulates the γ-interferon-producing ability of leukocytes.
It causes the generation of cytotoxic lymphocytes and increases the content of NK-T cells with high killer activity against virus-transformed cells and pronounced antiviral activity.,
The anti-inflammatory effect is due to the suppression of the production of key pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNFα, IL-1β and IL-6), a decrease in the activity of myeloperoxidase.
Therapeutic efficacy in influenza and other acute respiratory viral infections (SARS) is manifested in shortening the fever period, reducing intoxication (headache, weakness, dizziness), catarrhal phenomena, reducing the number of complications and the duration of the disease.
Suction and distribution. When using Ingavirin in recommended doses, the determination of the drug in blood plasma by available methods is not possible. In experimental studies using a radioactive label, it was found that the drug quickly enters the blood from the digestive tract and is evenly distributed throughout the internal organs.
Cmax in blood, plasma and most organs is reached 30 minutes after drug administration. The AUC values of the kidneys, liver, and lungs are slightly higher than the blood AUCs (43.77 μg × h / g). The AUC values of the spleen, adrenal gland, lymph nodes and thymus are lower than the blood AUC. The average retention time of the drug in the blood is 37.2 hours.
With a 5-day course of oral administration of the drug 1 time / day, it accumulates in the internal organs and tissues. Moreover, the qualitative characteristics of the pharmacokinetic curves after each administration of the drug were identical: a rapid increase in the concentration of the drug after each administration and then a slow decrease by 24 hours.
Metabolism and excretion. It is not metabolized in the body and excreted unchanged. The main process of excretion occurs within 24 hours. During this time, 80% of the dose is excreted. During the first 5 hours, 34.8% is excreted, in the following hours - 45.2%. Of these, 77% is excreted in feces, 23% in urine.
Treatment of influenza A and B and other acute respiratory viral infections (adenovirus infection, parainfluenza, respiratory syncytial infection).

The duration of treatment for influenza and acute respiratory viral infections in children from 3 to 6 years is 5 days. The drug is taken from the moment the first symptoms of the disease appear, preferably not later than 2 days from the onset of the disease.
Adults and children with severe symptoms, as well as in the presence of concomitant diseases (diseases of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, diabetes mellitus, obesity) should take a double dose of the drug in the first three days of the disease, then continue taking it in the usual dosage for 2-4 days .
For the prevention of influenza and acute respiratory viral infections after contact with sick people, adults and children from 7 years of age are prescribed the drug for 7 days, children from 3 to 6 years old - for 5 days.
