Bird flu protection >

Tamiflu

Tamiflu is the trade name for the antiviral drug Oseltamivir. According to Wikipedia, Oseltamivir is "an antiviral drug, a neuraminidase inhibitor used in the treatment and prophylaxis of both influenza A and influenza B. Oseltamivir was the first orally active neuraminidase inhibitor commercially developed. It was developed by Gilead Sciences and is currently marketed by Hoffman-La Roche (Roche) under the trade name Tamiflu®."

Due to the current concerns over an avian flu pandemic, the world-wide demand for Tamiflu is at risk of quickly outpacing its supply. Roche may be establishing partnerships around the world to increase Tamiflu production, but experts suggest that if--or when--a pandemic breaks out, it may be nearly impossible to acquire the drug.

Side effects of Tamiflu

Whilst it is possible that Tamiflu may help reduce the symptoms of bird flu, there have also be reports of potentially serious side effects of the drug

The most common side effects of Tamiflu are nausea and vomiting, although some incidences of self-injury and delirium with the use of Tamiflu in patients with the flu have been reported (mostly from Japan). These reports were primarily among children, although the exact relationship of these reported events to Tamiflu is not known.

We have created a seperate news feed at the bottom of this page to cover the side effects of Tamiflu.
