[Pharmacology and Toxicology]

Pharmacology: broad-spectrum antiviral agents. In vitro, it can inhibit the growth of many viruses such as respiratory syncytial virus, influenza virus, hepatitis A virus, adenovirus and so on, but its mechanism is not clear. This product does not change viral adsorption, invasion and shelling, nor does it induce interferon production. The drug into the infected cells after rapid phosphorylation, a competitive inhibitor of the product as the virus synthetase, inhibition of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase, influenza virus RNA polymerase and guanosine mRNA transferase, which caused the decrease of intracellular guanosine phosphate three, virus damage RNA and protein synthesis, the inhibition of virus replication and transmission. Respiratory syncytial virus may also act as an immune agent and neutralizing antibodies.

Toxicology: animal experiments have shown that this product can induce benign tumors in the breast, pancreas, pituitary and adrenal gland, but the carcinogenicity of the human body is not certain. Drugs such as hamsters can cause deformities of the skull, palate, eye, jaw, skeleton and gastrointestinal tract, but the offspring survived less. However, the effects of drugs on fetal litter have not been found in primate experiments. Mice, rats and monkeys oral doses were Ribavirin, 30, 36 and 4 weeks (120mg/kg or equivalent dose given weight for 5kg children 4.8, 12.3 and 111.4mg/kg, or 2.5, 5.1 adult weight was 60kg and 40mg/kg), heart injury.



Intravenous infusion of this product 0.8g, after 5 minutes, the plasma concentration was (17.8 + 5.5) Mu mol, and after 30 minutes the plasma concentration was (42.3 + 10.4) Mu mol. Enter the body rapidly spread to all parts of the body, and through the blood - cerebrospinal fluid barrier. The concentrations of drugs in respiratory tract secretions were much higher than those in serum. Drugs can enter red blood cells and accumulate large quantities. After long-term medication, the concentration of cerebrospinal fluid can reach 67% of the serum concentration at the same time. This product can penetrate the placenta, but also into the milk. Almost no binding to plasma proteins. Intrahepatic metabolism. Plasma drug elimination half-life (t1/2 beta) is about 0.5 to 2 hours. Mainly through renal excretion, within 48 hours, from the urine can be detected (16.7 + 10.3%) of the drug excreted in the prototype, (6.2 + 1.7%) of drugs excreted in metabolites. Drugs can accumulate in red blood cells for several weeks.
