Flu and Protease inhibitors
Mar 4, 2005

H5N1 Bird Flu may be treatable with Kaltera. http://today.reuters.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?type=healthNews&storyID=2005-03-01T162045Z_01_B682054_RTRIDST_0_HEALTH-BIRDFLU-AIDS-DC.XML

What other Protease inhibitors may work against a pandemic Flu? Could children be safely treated with these drugs?

Response from Dr. Henry

It is way to early to comment on whetehr protease inhibitors could be effective in serious flu or other infections but it is an interesting idea. Protease inhibitors decrease apoptosis which could decrease a cascage of negative effects unleashed by the immune system against a new invader. We should know more over the next year about this.
