Azoximer bromide is a macromolecular compound with high-molecular weight and high immunomodulating activity. It is used in Russia and CIS in treatment and prophylaxis of diseases connected with damage of immune system. It is a N-oxidized polyethylene–piperazine derivative.

Azoximer bromide is registered in US Patent-5503830 from 1996,[1][2][3] in the Russian Federation from 1996, under registration number 96/302/9, FS 42-3906-00.[4]

Medical uses

In adults with secondary immunodeficient states as

- relapsing chronic bacterial infections

- relapsing chronic viral infections

- acute bacterial infections

- acute viral infections

- allergic diseases (pollinosis, bronchial asthma, atopic dermatitis)

- severe septic states

- postoperative complications - purulent affections

- when primary treatment develops cellular immunity decrease (cytostatic treatment, X-rays)
