News - Avian Flu: Amantadine instead of Tamiflu:
Today, Health-Effects.net, a leading online pharmacy that specializes in the distribution of “O.T.C” medications announced an immune system package to help those at risk from the flu virus.
Current flu vaccinations are created by isolating the virus that causes flu, weakening it, and turning the weakened strain into a vaccine. The flu virus, however, undergoes many mutations, and changes rapidly. By the time a vaccine is produced, new and different types of flu virus may very well appear.The current avian flu virus can migrate from poultry to human beings, but one person cannot infect another, and therefore has not yet become an epidemic. It is feared that this virus will mutate into one that can also be transmitted from one person to another Flu viruses are constantly mutating. A vaccine designed to protect against avian flu is already on the market, but it provides protection only against the current strain. There is no guarantee that the current vaccine will also be effective against the mutated avian flu epidemic.
