Bird flu vaccine
the primary treatment for bird flu is oseltamivir, commercially called Tami flu. This prevents the virus from escaping from the cells where it is hosted, although it is unclear how effective Tami flu will be against the H5N1 strain of bird flu. There is evidence to suggest that bird flu is already developing a resistance to Tamiflu, so use of Relenza as an alternative antiviral treatment may be necessary.
