Pharmacological actions: Bacteriophage is a specific bacterial virus, which is adsorbed on the homological bacterial cell membrane, penetrates into the cell, multiplies, and causes its lyses. The composition of PHAGYO is selective, only virulent phages of bacteria: Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E.Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus which ensures a high activity and effectiveness of the bacteriophage products.

Antibacterial efficacy of bacteriophage products is based on the specific lysis ability of pathogenic bacteria in the nidus of infection underexposure of bacteriophages. Despite the mode of introduction, bacteriophage products enter the blood and lymph and enter into the nidus of infection, and the main part of medicinal product excreted by the kidney and the rest by the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, the medicinal product stimulates the activity of the patient immune system and is efficient in the treatment of diarrheal diseases of immunocompromised patients.

A bacteriophage is a bacterial virus that enters a bacterial cell, multiplies in the cell, causing cell rupture and yielding new mature bacteriophage particles ready to infect new bacterial cells. Bacteriophages are strictly specific towards homological bacteria and therefore don’t suppress human normal flora and are absolutely safe for human cells.

Therapeutic Indications:  PHAGYO used for treatment and prophylaxis of bacterial purulent–inflammatory infections, caused by the following microorganisms – Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E.Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus, and their combinations.

The medicinal product is used in patients of all ages and high-risk groups for the treatment of the following diseases:

  • Bacterial infections of the upper and lower respiratory tract (Inflammation of the sinuses, otitis media, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, tracheitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, pleuritis);
  • In surgery (purulent wound, burns, abscess, phlegmon, furuncles, carbuncles, hidradenitis, panaritium, paraproctitis, mastitis, bursitis, osteomyelitis);
  • In Urology (urogenital infections: urethritis, cystitis, pyelonephritis, colpitis, endometritis, salpingo-oophoritis);
  • Gastroenterology (enterocolitis, cholecystitis, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (dysbiosis);
  • Generalized septic infections;
  • Purulent–inflammatory neonatal infections (omphalitis, pyoderma, conjunctivitis, sepsis);
  • Other diseases, caused by Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E.Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus.

For prophylactic purpose bacteriophage products used for:

  • Treatment of post-surgical and newly infected wounds, as in the household, and in hospitals;
  • For the prevention of purulent complications of surgical procedures and operations;
  • For the prevention of bacterial complications of acute respiratory-viral diseases;
  • For prevention of bacterial contamination and infections in hospitals.

Dose, method, and time of administration:

One of the most important conditions of phage therapy is to determine the phage sensitivity of microorganisms that causes disease. Treatment efficacy of bacteriophage products depends on the use of this product at the initial stages of disease and administration as soon as possible directly to the site of infection.

Depending on the site of infection PHAGYO can be used for internal use (per oral, per rectum), locally (in the form of rinses, irrigation, Wash), for introduction into the cavity (wound, abscess, peritoneal, pleural cavity, abscess, nose, sinuses, otitis media, bladder, uterus, vagina).

PHAGYO is administered for the treatment of inflammatory diseases locally and per oral at the same time. The duration of treatment is 5 -10 days.

The quantity of medicinal product depends on the size of the damaged site. PHAGYO is administered in the infected cavity after emptying from abscess and drainage. The quantity of the medicinal products must be rather lower than the abscess taken from the cavity. The next day's medicinal product is administered into the cavity through drainage. The procedure takes place once a day during 3-5 days.

  • For the treatment of cystitis, pyelonephritis, urethritis medicinal product is taken internally, if the cavity of the bladder or renal pelvis drained, PHAGYO administered twice a day for 20-30 ml into the bladder and 5-10 ml in the renal pelvis;
  • When purulent-inflammatory gynecological diseases, the medicinal product is administered into the cavity of the vagina, uterus, 5-10 ml once daily.
  • For treatment, purulent-inflammatory diseases of the ear, nose, and throat medicine are administered at a dose of 2-10 ml 1-3 times a day. Bacteriophage used for rinsing, washing, or insert of turundas at the site of disease for 1 hour. For the treatment of purulent tonsillitis compound can be used for rinsing and per oral at the same time;
  • For the treatment of stomatitis and chronic generalized periodontitis, the compound can be used as a mouth rinse 3-4 times daily at a dose of 10-20 ml and soaked turundy by PHAGYO is administered into the periodontal pockets, for 5-10 minutes;
  • For the treatment of intestinal forms of the disease, diseases of internal organs, IBS (dysbiosis), PHAGYO administered through the mouth and enema. The medicinal product is given for per oral 1 hour before meals, in the form of enemas, take once a day, evening, before bedtime.

Treatment is recommended to be done in accordance with the scheme given below: 

Age Per oral administration Per rectum (enema)
up to 6 months 5 ml X 1 a day 10 ml  X 1 a day
6 to 1 year 5 ml X 2 a day 10 ml  X 1 a day
1  to 3 years 5 ml X 3 a day 20 ml X 1 a day
3 to 8 years 10 ml X 2-3 a day 30 ml X 1 a day
More than 8 years 20 ml X 2-3 a day 40 ml X 1 a day

The dose of the medicinal product for prophylactic use is determined by the condition of patients.
