Why do children fall ill
more severely than adults?

Immature immune processes pose a high risk of complications and a longer period of virus elimination1.
Low production of interferons, proteins actively combating the virus. The adult level is achieved by 12–18 years1.
Immune processes in the mucosae are immature, their protective properties are reduced1.
Intoxication symptoms (muscle pain, fever, shiver) are usually more pronounced than in adults.

Polyoxidonium®: combined action
for ARVI and influenza treatment

The drug can:

reduce the viral load2 due to the increase in own interferon production
alleviate the disease severity by reducing inflammation and intoxication3
prevent bacterial complications4
boost mucosae protective properties due to increased production of lysozyme5
