TSikloferon stimulates the synthesis of "early" interferons. It also activates the stem cells Stem cells: on the edge of scandal  Stem cells: on the edge of scandal
   bone marrow, which contributes to increased formation of granulocyte function - protection against infection.

It restores the normal balance between different types of lymphocytes, activates phagocytosis (capture and dissolution of cells of infectious agents within the blood cells - phagocytes) that enhances the body's defenses, as well as complete or partial restoration of immunity when violations (including HIV infection) and autoimmune processes (allergy to the body's own tissues) of different origin.

TSikloferon as an antiviral drug suppresses the livelihoods of tick-borne encephalitis virus, influenza, hepatitis, herpes, cytomegalovirus, human immunodeficiency virus, papilloma virus, enterovirus, and a variety of other viruses.
