Abstract

Zanamivir [‘Relenza’] is an exciting new neuraminidase inhibitor indicated for the treatment of influenza virus infection. Data from a pooled analysis of 6 randomised controlled trials show that zanamivir is of most benefit in patients aged ≥ 50 years and in those with severe influenza symptoms. This analysis, and another study showing that zanamivir reduces loss of productivity by preventing influenza, were presented at the 21st International Congress on Chemotherapy [ Birmingham, UK; July 1999 ].
