Professor, Head of Cytokine Laboratory, Interferon Department, N.F. Gamaleya Federal Research Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Moscow, Russia.
Education: Biology and Chemistry Department of the Moscow State Pedagogical Institute.
Research and Professional Experience: Antiviral immunity. Mechanisms of generation and action of interferons and other cytokines, development of immunomodulatory and antiviral drugs. In recent years, he has actively participated in research of the antiviral, anti-inflammatory and cytokine-regulating effects of polyprenyl phosphates. Together with his colleagues, he determined that Fortepren® treatment of patients with chronic recurrent herpes infection after acute phase termination with acyclovir decreased the recurrence rate, as well as the severity of local symptoms. The activation of natural immunity appears to be a leading mechanism of protection against herpes viral infection under the influence of polyprenyl phosphates.
