Q) What drugs are available for treatment?
 
A) Two drugs (in the neuraminidase inhibitors class), oseltamivir and zanamivir can reduce the severity and duration of illness caused by seasonal influenza. The efficacy of the neuraminidase inhibitors depends on their administration within 48 hours after symptoms onset. For cases of human infection with H5N1, the drugs may improve prospects of survival, if administered early.
