Relenza

Data from the World Health Organization's Global Influenza Surveillance Network indicate that the H5N1 strains that have been circulating are susceptible to 2 neuraminidase inhibitor antiviral drugs approved to treat human influenza infections in some countries: oseltamivir (sold as Tamiflu, available as capsules or an oral suspension) and zanamivir (sold as Relenza, only available in an inhaled form).

In order to establish that Relenza™ is effective in humans infected with bird flu, clinical data from humans will be needed.
