Interferon alpha (IFN-α) is a type I interferon that is produced by circulating leucocytes and lymphoblastoid cells; on top of its antiviral activity (which is common to all type I interferons) it also inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production and activates natural killer-cells and B-cells.[1]
