I think the H1N1 viruses are resistant to tamiflu,,they use Flumadine or amantadine, other antivirals. But I read the cdc memos on this outbreak and they didn’t mention antivirals and which ones worked.

There’s a Drudge link to a WHO report, stating that this virus is responsive to Tamiflu, and that authorities in both the US and Mexico have stockpiles of the drug.

The Swine Influenza A/H1N1 viruses characterized in this outbreak have not been previously detected in pigs or humans. The viruses so far characterized have been sensitive to oseltamivir, but resistant to both amantadine and rimantadine.

The Pickled Cabbage Condiment May Have Health Benefits Beyond Vitamins

SHARE Could sauerkraut be the next chicken soup?

The fermented food has been getting a lot of buzz lately, after scientists in Seoul claimed that 11 of 13 infected chickens started to recover from the avian flu after being fed an extract of kimchi, a Korean dish similar to sauerkraut, according to a BBC report.

With fear of a possible bird flu pandemic growing, sales of kimchi and sauerkraut have spiked in many areas of the world, various news reports state.
