It has been on the market for over 30 years and is currently registered in 43 countries world wide for a variety of indications.

Chronic Neuroimmune Diseases Immunovir (Isoprinosine)
Isoprinosine is a nucleoside, one of the basic compounds comprising cells. It is a precursor to adenosine, an important energy molecule, and plays many supportive roles in the body, including releasing insulin, facilitating the use of carbohydrate by the heart, and, potentially, participating in oxygen metabolism and protein synthesis. Based upon anecdotal reports by Russian and Eastern European athletes, inosine has been investigated for ergogenic (exercise boosting) effects. Results of controlled studies have been disappointing, however, suggesting that inosine does not improve athletic performance and may even impair it. It is used as an immune stimulator for cancer, herpes, and AIDS.
