Present day vaccines have a key role in influenza prophylaxis. Besides, there is a wide spectrum of pharmaceutics: antigrippine I, II, III, amantidin, remantadin, arbidol, laferon, etc. Anti-influenza vaccines and pharmaceutics mentioned above might cause side effects of blood circulating system (thrombocytopenia), immune system (allergic reactions), nervous system (frequent headaches, and less frequently cramps, encephalomyelitis, neuritis, Guillain-Barre syndrome), vascular system (vasculitis with acute damages of renal function).A new generation of antiviral remedies in the form of neuraminidase (zanamivir and oseltamivir) have appeared. They are free of the main drawbacks typical for vaccines and pharmaceutics of amantadin type and cause less resistance in viruses. Domestic scientists used the effect of influenza virus hemaglutine splitting by trypsin-like proteinase of respiratory tract cells of epithelium at two subunits (hemaagglutinin-1 and hemaagglutinin-2) have isolated inhibitor of trypsine-like proteinases which arrested development of influenza in white mice. Now they are searching biological material for isolation of trypsine-like proteinases as anti-virus remedy for a human.
