Does Tamiflu Guarantee Complete Recovery From Avian Flu?

According to me their isn’t any drug for bird flu that can guarantee a complete end to Avian flu but tamiflu is the best among the lot. It gives the best if not full protection against avian flu. Tamiflu marks the beginning of the magic. Tamiflu is a short time but still the forty eight hours becomes crucial. More to this is the fact that Tamiflu can reduce the chances of attracting the H5N1 virus when the flu out break looms freely around you..

  1. No. Nothing does. The guy above is right.
    In my opinion, governments are only pushing production of Tamiflu to make it look like they are doing something, to satisfy the public.

  2. No, Tamiflu is a preventative medication that can help prevent all strains of the flu. But influenza, including Avian or bird flu, is a virus like HIV. And as such we have no cure for viruses, just prevention and treatment of the symptoms.

  3. Tamiflu is a neuraminidase inhibitor. Flu viruses need an enzyme called neuraminidase in order to bud off of cells after they replicate inside of the cell. Unfortunately, viruses are quick to adapt and can become resistant to tamiflu. Even more unfortunate is the fact that Tamiflu resistant strains of the H5N1 Influenza virus have already been found.
    Tamiflu merely reduces the rate of viable virus production in hopes that your immune system can finish the job. Has anyone looked into using Interferons?
