Inosine pranobex (BAN; also known as inosine acedoben dimepranol (INN) or methisoprinol) is an antiviral drug that is a combination of inosine and dimepranol acedoben (a salt of acetamidobenzoic acid and dimethylaminoisopropanol) in a ratio of 1 to 3. Inosine pranobex has no effect on viral particles itself.[citation needed] Instead, it acts as an immunostimulant, an analog of thymus hormones.[1]

Inosine pranobex has been used in SSPE, herpes simplex virus, human papillomavirus, HIV, influenza virus, and airway virus infections, cytomegalovirus, and Epstein-Barr virus infections.[2] The effect on SSPE is unclear, it is not a cure for it.
