It is well known that the plant of lacrisa (Russian salodka, Uzbek buyan (or kizilmiya)), which is widely spread in the Middle Asia region, is dominated by biological activity against infectious (influenza, herpes, hepatitis, chlamydia) diseases. It is determined that glycyrizic acid is responsible for this biological activity, which is included in the constituent part of licorice (especially in its roots). It has been studied that glycyrrhizic acid with other preparations, for example with Megosin, has a supramolecular complex, a new preparation of Megoferon, which induces interferon biosynthesis several times more (5120 units/ml) than Megosin itself.
