Experience in using leukocytic interferon and metacil in children with influenza

Antibiotiki (Moscow) 20(2): 170-173
Experience in using leukocytic interferon and metacil in children with influenza
For prophylaxis of influenza 213 children were treated with leukocytic interferon and metacil and 192 children were observed as controls. The drug was administered intranasally in a dose of 0.25 ml once a day. Among the children treated prophylactically with interferon and metacil, the number of influenza cases decreased 2.17 times as compared to the control group. Among children with influenza who were in contact with each other, the severity of the infection and the number of complications decreased. Under stationary conditions among the children treated with interferon and metacil, the numbers of wave-like infections and complications decreased 2.5 and 2.9 times, respectively, as compared to the children not treated with the drugs. Addition of metacil to leukocytic interferon provided its administration once a day instead of 3-4 times a day.
