FDA approves a new antiviral flu drug after 20 years

Oct 26, 2018 15:57 IST

The US Food and Drug Administration has approved a new antiviral flu drug, for the first time in 20 years. The approval was based on two clinical trials of more than 1,800 patients. Called Xofluza, a single oral dose of the drug can treat an uncomplicated flu for patients above the age of 12. If used within 48 hours of catching an infection, Xofluza can also reduce chances of complications like pneumonia.
