Zanamivir, like oseltamivir, is a neuraminidase
inhibitor that is effective against both influenza A and influenza B.
Receptors: Cover surface of host cell Viral neuraminidase
binds to receptors.
Biota developed the first-in-class neuraminidase
inhibitor, zanamivir, subsequently marketed by GlaxoSmithKline as Relenza.
To assess global phylogeny of influenza A virus H7 and N9 subtypes, we analyzed 715 hemagglutinin and 309 neuraminidase
nucleotide sequences of viruses isolated during 1927-2012 worldwide (online Technical Appendix, wwwnc.
The researcher explained how the new test technology uses various forms of carbohydrates that can capture the hemagglutinin and neuraminidase
, and via a colour change or other signal, indicate both infection and the specific type or strain of flu virus.

In the four trials totaling 475 high-risk patients, the rate of flu-related pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, and other complications was 8% in neuraminidase
inhibitor-treated patients compared with 25% with placebo--for a 63% relative risk reduction, said Dr.
Both studies find that the closest relative of H1N1's neuraminidase
gene is from a Eurasian swine flu virus that probably leaped from birds to pigs in about 1979.
They also highlight the importance of monitoring the emergence of drug resistance in H5N1 isolates from patients treated with neuraminidase
However, it seems more likely that the glycoproteins are correctly synthesized and that they lose the sialic acid residues on the termini of their glycan antennas as a result of the action of circulating neuraminidase
excreted by the S.
The first neuraminidase
inhibitor for flu prevention.
The medication targets one of two major surface structures on the influenza virus, the neuraminidase
