The purpose of the work is the study of the antiviral activity and some pharmacokinetic parameters of oral formulation of pegylated interferon α-2b (PEG-IFN α-2b) obtained by technology of electron-beam synthesis. Material and Methods. The antiviral activity of PEG-IFN α-2b against Coxsackie virus was studied in RD cells culture. To study the pharmacokinetics we used FITC-labeled PEG-IFN α-2b.
