Tamiflu linked to improved pneumonia defence

  • Comment

Healthy people who caught swine flu last year may have been prevented from developing pneumonia by taking the drug Tamiflu, research carried out in China has found.

The study also found that use of the drug was associated with a shorter period of fever, when taken within two days of symptoms first appearing, and a shorter time when the patient was contagious.

The study looked at the records of just over 1,250 people.
