Arbidol (ARB) has been administered for decades in Russia and
China against influenza, with no major adverse effects reported. Its
vast potential as a broad-spectrum antiviral agent, defined through
in vitro and in vivo studies, lends hope for its clinical use against
various infectious diseases that are at present not therapeutically
controlled. However, evidence for beneficial effects in humans,
especially in the perspective of long-term administration in
chronic diseases, remains equivocal. This could be attributable to
a relative lack of standardized animal studies and controlled clinical
trials in healthy and infected subjects. In addition to influenza
and pathogenic human respiratory viruses, ARB shows mainly
in vitro inhibitory activity against the hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis
C virus (HCV), chikungunya virus (CHIKV), reovirus, Hantaan
virus and coxsackie virus B5.
Interferons are first immunomodulatory molecules that have been shown to display a wide range of
applications due to their antiviral, antibacterial, antitumor, and inflammatory activities. Natural
and recombinant interferons are among most common biologic therapeutics worldwide. Interferon inducers,
however, are less known and have been mostly developed and used in former socialist countries. Despite
the fact that they are virtually unknown to the Western world, they represent a substantial market share
of modern pharmacopoeia in former socialist republics. This review provides a brief description of most
popular interferon inducers including Arbidol.
