[Article in Russian]


Psychoimmunomodulating action of phenotropil has been shown on the model of experimental hyperthyroidism. It has been found that the drug (14-days i.p. injection in a dose of 25 mg/kg) is capable of restoring the cellular and humoral immunoreactivity and improve psychoemotonal state of animals by eliminating disturbances in the behavior reactions that appear as a result of the induced hyperthyroidism.
