Imunovir ™ (inosine pranobex) is an immunomodulator of the potentiator type which has demonstrated an enhancing effect on the function and number of various cells of the immune system, particularly T lymphocytes. Imunovir™ has the ability to enhance the functions of various cells within the immune system and it seems likely that these effects are responsible for its clinical efficacy. Therapy with an agent capable of enhancing certain aspects of the immune response is a logical approach to the treatment of disorders associated with an underlying cellular immune defect. These include viral diseases and immune deficiency states.
Imunovir™ is also known as in different parts of the world as Isoprinosine®, Viruxan®, Prinosine® and Virimun®.
A pilot study in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has been published, but its use in this indication is still considered investigational.
Immunovir™ has registered indications in 70 countries.
Imunovir™ is approved only for the treatment of SSPE (subacute sclerosing panencephalitis) in Canada.
Imunovir™ is available in 500mg tablets and is supplied in packages of 100 blistered tablets. It is a prescription-only medication in Canada.
Immune modulation is a new emerging field in the medical treatment of viral infections. Immune modulations works by introducing an agent into the body that boosts specific areas of the immune system, most notably the T Lymphocytes cells. It is our belief, along with many other members of the medical community, that stimulating areas of the immune system will lead to an increase in the probability of your body naturally fighting viral infections. Anti-virals exert their effect on individual viruses and tend to work on specific virus types, whereas stimulating the immune system tends to target all virus types to varying degrees .
Since an immune modulator boosts the effectiveness of the viral immune system it is our belief that immune modulation could be an effective treatment in a wide variety of viral infections.
