Interferon is a protein with similar properties secreted by body cells in response to a virus invasion.
IFN-gamma belongs to type 2 and provides a combined effect: antiviral, with a wide spectrum of action, and powerful immunomodulating. Affects antibody formation and cellular immune response.
This type of interferon plays an important role in preventing the development of infection. In addition, IFN-γ also activates acquired immunity, which guarantees protection against secondary infection.
