Seasonal Influenza Activity Increasing Across Europe - H3N2 Dominant Strain
Date:1/19/2009

inues to support the activities of the Neuraminidase Inhibitor Susceptibility Network (NISN).

Sensitivity of H5N1 (bird flu) to Tamiflu

Recently published data confirms that the H5N1 avian influenza (bird flu) strain remains sensitive to Tamiflu. Greater than ninety nine percent of H5N1 samples studied did not exhibit mutations that confer oseltamivir resistance.(3)

According to Benjamin Schwartz, MD, CDC National Vaccine Program Office, "the mutations that have made the H1N1 virus resistant are unlikely to occur in a pandemic virus, so therefore we have not changed our recommendations for planning and stockpiling".(4) Tamiflu remains the World Health Organization's "primary recommended antiviral agent of choice for the treatment of A(H5N1) virus infections".(5)
