This is a study for patients with flu who also have a fever as well as other flu symptoms. Patients must have had symptoms for less than 48 hours in order to participate. Patients will have two out of three chances of getting an active study treatment and the other third will receive a placebo (dummy drug). Nobody will know who gets the active drug and who gets the inactive drug. All patients will get supplies to treat symptoms of flu. Patients will need to be seen 5 more times after they are enrolled in the study.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to determine whether peramivir is safe and effective in the treatment of uncomplicated seasonal influenza.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectivess of a single intramuscular injection of peramivir for the treatment of subjects with acute, uncomplicated influenza.
Peramivir is the first intravenous neuraminidase inhibitor (NAI) available for treatment of uncomplicated influenza in adults. Data from placebo-controlled trials in outpatients have shown...
This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics and effectiveness of a single dose of 600 mg IV peramivir in the treatment of elderly subjects with acute uncomplicated influenza infe...
The purposes of this study are to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (affect the body has on a drug), and pharmacodynamics (affect the drug has on the body) and safety of an experimental intrav...
Immune response after intravenous peramivir administration, which is approved for children with influenza infection in Japan, is unclear.
Susceptibility of Brazilian influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses to neuraminidase inhibitors in the 2014-2016 seasons: Identification of strains bearing mutations associated with reduced inhibition profile.
Neuraminidase inhibitors (NAIs) are the main class of antivirals currently used for the treatment of influenza infections. As influenza viruses are constantly evolving, drug-resistance can emerge resu...
The development of a broadly protective or universal influenza virus vaccine is currently a public health priority worldwide. The vast majority of these efforts is exclusively focused on influenza A v...
Influenza is responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality, but there is limited information on reliable disease burden estimates, especially from middle-income countries in the WHO European Reg...
Infants under 6 months of age are too young to receive influenza vaccine, despite being at high risk for severe influenza-related complications.
Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.
Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.
Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.
A genus of the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE comprising viruses similar to types A and B but less common, more stable, more homogeneous, and lacking the neuraminidase protein. They have not been associated with epidemics but may cause mild influenza. Influenza C virus is the type species.
A genus in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE causing influenza and other diseases in humans and animals. It contains many strains as well as antigenic subtypes of the integral membrane proteins hemagglutinin (HEMAGGLUTININS) and NEURAMINIDASE. The type species is INFLUENZA A VIRUS.
