Therefore, interferons are products of activated cells, lacking specificity for antigens, and serving as mediators of intercellular and intersystem interactions in the immune response, hematopoiesis and inflammation. Disorder of IFN production and reception can be the basis for the formation of many pathological processes. It is important to note that the importance of the IFN system approaches the immunity system, and even surpasses it in universality. It is this universality of IFNs, which makes them the most important factors of nonspecific resistance, that served as the basis for proposing the integral concept of "interferon status", which has the potential for application in clinical practice. The variety of the described effects of IFN indicates the broad control and regulatory functions of this system, aimed in general at preserving the body. Key words: interferons, immunity, antiviral action, interferon system, antiviral protection of immunity.
