Abstract This short report is dedicated to the description of the wide antiviral and antibacterial activity of the immune-modulating agent Panavir®. Panavir® is a high-molecular-weight fraction of the polysaccharides extracted from the shoots of the Solanum tuberosum. It demonstrates activity against many types of viruses, including animal coronavirus and also against bacterial infections. These properties look very promising considering the… Expand
Antiviral potential of plant polysaccharide nanoparticles actuating non-specific immunity☆
The physiological basis of the Panavir proinflammatory activity is hypothesized to be mediated by the indol-containing compounds (auxins) present in Panvir and acting as a plant analog of serotonin. Expand

Physicochemical properties of high-molecular-weight plant polysaccharide of hexose glycoside class (Panavir) with antiviral activity
A high-molecular-weight plant polysaccharide belonging to the hexose glycoside (HG) class and composed of rhamnose (2–10%), arabinose (3–15%), glucose (10–67%), galactose (2–27%), xylose (0.1–3%),Expand
[Effect of Panavir on influenza A virus reproduction].
Under in vitro conditions with the use of relatively high doses for the cell contamination with the grippe virus, panavir lowered the virus production in the cell systems, and in the in vivo studies on mice with the experimental grippe infectionpanavir showed antigrippe activity against both the romantadine resistant and the remantadines nonresistant populations of the gripe A virus.
