Tilorone is a low-molecular synthetic interferon inductor, which stimulates the formation of alpha, beta and gamma interferons. The main producers of interferon as a response for tilorone application are the cells of the intestinal epithelium, hepatocytes, T-lymphocytes, neutrophils and granulocytes. The maximum production of interferon is registered in 4-24 hours after Amixin application. The antiviral mechanism of action depends on the dose and is connected with increased formation of antibodies, decrease in the level of immunodepression, and restoration of the balance between T-suppressors and T-helpers.
