Better Preparedness Against Tamiflu-Resistant Influenza Viruses

December 9, 2013

Researchers at Umeå University and Uppsala Universityhave found that residues of the influenza drug Tamiflu in our environment can make the influenza virus in birds resistant. This can have serious consequences in the event of an influenza pandemic. With more than 14 million SEK from the Swedish Research Councils Formas and VR, the research team will now continue their studies with a focus on alternative antiviral drugs.
