Arbidol Hydrochloride Description
Arbidol is a broad-spectrum, indole-based antiviral compound that blocks viral fusion with target membranes, prohibiting viral entry into cells. Because arbidol targets a common critical step for viral replication, it is effective against numerous viruses, including influenza A, B, and C and hepatitis B and C (IC50s range from 3-12.5 µg/ml). Besides its antiviral action, arbidol has been reported to produce an immunomodulatory response by inducing interferon production and stimulating the phagocytic function of macrophages.
Arbidol hydrochloride is a non-nucleoside antiviral drug. Arbidol can specifically inhibit the contact, adhesion, and fusion of virus lipid envelope with the host cell membrane by activating the antiviral protein in the host, thereby inhibiting the replication of the virus in host cells.
