Pharmacological properties

Pharmacokinetics

After oral administration, Amizon® quickly enters the bloodstream, its maximum concentration in the blood is observed 2-2.5 hours after administration. The half-life is 13.5-14 hours, it is metabolized in the liver, but quickly excreted from the tissues (the half-life is 2-3 hours). It is excreted from the body by 90-95% in the urine in the form of metabolites.

Pharmacodynamics

Amizone® is a derivative of isonicotinic acid. It has an inhibitory effect on influenza viruses, has interferonogenic properties, increases the body’s resistance to viral infections, has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effects.

The antiviral effect of Amizone® is associated with its direct effect on the hemagglutinins of the influenza virus, as a result of which the virion loses its ability to attach to target cells for further replication.

The anti-inflammatory effect is the result of stabilization of cell and lysosomal membranes, slowing down the degranulation of basophils, antioxidant action, normalization of the level of prostaglandins, cyclic nucleotides and energy metabolism in the focus of inflammation. The antipyretic properties of this agent are due to the effect on the thermoregulatory centers of the brain. The analgesic effect of the drug is carried out through the reticular formation of the brain stem.

Amizon® enhances persistent immunity by increasing the level of endogenous interferon in blood plasma by 3-4 times, lysozyme and increasing the titer of antibodies to infectious agents, as well as cellular – by stimulating the functional activity of T-lymphocytes and macrophages. This agent is a powerful inducer of endogenous interferon.
