Tamiflu-resistant Swine Flu

Research at the World Health Organisation’s Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza in Melbourne shows Tamiflu-resistant swine flu is on the rise. The even more concerning part is a drug resistance in the flu strain in virus samples collected from patients who have not been treated with Tamiflu.

“Rates of Tamiflu resistance remain low globally although Roche takes the issue of resistance very seriously and collaborates with international organizations and authorities to monitor the situation,” said Daniel Grotzky of Roche.
