properties of interferon
Properties of Interferon
  • Species specific
  • Induced soon (hours) following virus infection

  • Bacterial endotoxin
activity of interferon
Activity of Interferon
  • IFN made and secreted from virus infected cell
  • Binds to specific cell receptor that triggers a signal transduction cascade
  • Prepares the cell to combat virus infection by expressing threeproenzymes termed antiviral effector molecules (AVEM)
antiviral state in cell avem three proenzymes
Antiviral State In Cell (AVEM): Three Proenzymes
  • 1) 2’,5’-oligoA synthetase (OAS)
  • 2) dsRNA-dependent protein kinase (PKR)
  • 3) RNAse-L
  • Proenzymes, when activated, inhibit viral replication
oas activated cell
OAS-Activated Cell
  • Viral infection (dsRNA) activates the proenzyme OAS
  • 2’,5’-oligoA is maded
  • 2’,5’-oligoA activates proenzyme RNAse-L, which cleaves mRNA
  • No mRNA, translation STOPPED
pkr activated cell
PKR-Activated Cell
  • Viral infection (dsRNA) activates the proenzyme PKR
  • Ribosome translation initiation factor (eIF2) is phosphorylated by activated PKR
  • No ribosome initiation complex
  • No ribosome formation, translation & protein synthesis STOPPED
clinical use of interferon antiviral
Clinical Use of Interferon: Antiviral
  • Available in adequate amount since 1980s by recombinant DNA technology
  • Life threatening infections – rabies, hemorrhagic fevers, encephalitis due to arboviruses
  • Persistent chronic infections - hepatitis B hepatitis C, papilloma, herpesvirus, HIV
clinical use of interferon anti cancer
Clinical Use of Interferon: Anti-Cancer
  • Leukemia / lymphoma
  • Multiple myeloma
  • GI tumors
  • Kidney, Bladder cancer
  • Mesothelioma (lung cancer)
  • AIDS-related Kaposi’s sarcoma (Human Herpes Virus-8)
interferon toxic side effects

therapeutic index t i for antiviral
Therapeutic Index (T.I.) for Antiviral
