Lavomax is an immunomodulating and antiviral drug intended for the treatment and prevention of respiratory and other viral diseases.

Tilorone, its active ingredient, stimulates the production of interferons (proteins essential for anti-viral defense) and enhances immunity during influenza and ARVI. The synthesis method and antiviral properties of tilorone were first patented in 1968 in the USA. In USSR the production and use of this drug started in 1975.

Research demonstrated that Lavomax is effective in treating viral infections, including influenza and other acute respiratory viral infections, hepatitis and herpes, cytomegalovirus, and neurotropic viruses. The drug inhibits viral translation in the infected cells and prevents the spread of viruses, thus showing a strong antiviral effect.

Pharmacodynamic properties

Lavomax stimulates the production of alpha, beta, and gamma types of interferons in intestinal epithelial cells, hepatocytes, T-cells, and neutrophils.

It also contributes to the growth of bone marrow cells and enhances antibody production, stabilizes the level of immunosuppression, and regulates the T-Lymphocyte Helper/Suppressor ratio.

You can buy Tilorone dihydrochloride tablets for use as a part of complex therapy of:

  • Influenza and ARVI;
  • Herpes;
  • Prevention of influenza and ARVI;
  • The drug can also be used as part of complex therapy of viral hepatitis A, B, and C, cytomegalovirus infection, and non-gonococcal urethritis.

Triazavirin® is an antiviral drug. It is the first medicine in the azoloazine group. It's said to be effective against 15 strains of influenza and fevers, including swine and avian ones as well as some dangerous pathogenic viruses. Triazavirin is used in case of exacerbations of bronchial asthma caused by viral infections. The instructions say that the drug inhibits the synthesis of the virus RNA and the replication of fragments of its genome. Thus, it does not allow the virus to produce its copies in the affected cell.

NALTREXONE

Naltrexone® is an opioid antagonist. It is primarily used to manage alcohol or opioid dependence. It reduces the effect of opioid analgesics and eliminates side effects of opioids (including endogenous ones). In alcoholism, it binds to opioid receptors and blocks the effects of endorphins. Low dose of Naltrexone (LDN) is recommended by some doctors for the use in HIV/AIDS, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and central nervous system disorders. Fast US domestic shipping is available.

LICOPID ® (GMDP)

Licopid® (or Lycopid) is an immunomodulator containing a complete synthetic analogue of natural GMDP or glucosaminyl muramyl dipeptide. Once in the body, Lycopid mimics the natural process of detecting fragments of peptidoglycan bacteria. Thus, the effect of the drug is as close as possible to the process of natural immunoregulation.

Heptor® is a drug based on ademetionine (S-Adenosyl methionine), which is currently considered one of the most powerful hepatoprotectors. Besides, ademetionine also has anti-inflammatory, painkiller and antidepressant effects. Heptor is a choleretic and cholekinetic drug. The use of the drug in patients with osteoarthritis helps relieve pain and stimulate proteoglycan synthesis and cartilage tissue regeneration. Fast US domestic shipping is available.
