Interferon alpha is a mixture of different subtypes of natural alpha-interferon from human blood leukocytes. It has antiviral, immunostimulatory and antiproliferative effects. The antiviral action of the drug is mainly based on increasing the resistance of the body cells that have not yet been infected by the virus to the possible effects. Being bound with specific receptors on cell surface, interferon alfa changes cell membrane properties, stimulates specific enzymes, affects RNA of virus and prevents its replication. Immunomodulatory effect of interferon alfa is associated with stimulation of macrophages and NK (natural killer) cells activity, which in their turn participate in the immune response of the body to tumor cells.

Because interferons inhibit oxidative metabolism in the liver, the biotransformation of drugs metabolized by this route may be impaired.
In concomitant use with ACE inhibitors synergism is possible with regard to hematotoxic action; with zidovudine – synergism with regard to myelotoxic action; with paracetamol – possible increase in activity of liver enzymes; with theophylline – decrease of theophylline clearance.
