Papalor is a herbal preparation containing an extract from the roots of the South African plant Pelargonium sidoides. The drug has a pronounced antiviral, antibacterial, immunomodulatory, mucolytic, cytoprotective effect, effective at all stages of the pathogenesis of acute respiratory viral infections, as well as prevents the progression and development of complications. The clinical effectiveness of the phytoextract is due to the action of the main components that are part of it: flavonoids (quercetin, halocatechin, kaempferol, etc.); coumarins (umcalin, scopolin, scopoletin, etc.), as well as phenolic acids (gallic acid, etc.).
The antibacterial activity of the drug is manifested against various gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, beta-hemolytic Streptococcus) and gram-negative (Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Haemophilus influenzae) bacteria.
The effect on the nonspecific immune response is to stimulate the phagocytic activity of macrophages and release NO from them, increase the expression of CD11b-adhesion of molecules on the surface of neutrophils, inhibition of leukocyte chemotaxis. This indicates the immunomodulatory properties of the drug.
The drug activates the mechanisms of airway cleansing, which improves the excretion of viscous mucus and eliminates the conditions for the reproduction of pathogenic bacteria.
In addition, phenolic acids stimulate the endogenous system of antiviral protection, promote the synthesis of anti-inflammatory interleukins, interferon, protect cells from damage by infections, thereby showing a positive effect on the treatment process.
