Four different antiviral drugs that are approved in the United States for the treatment of influenza: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. Although most of the swine influenza viruses have been sensitive to the four types of drugs, the seven most recent viruses of swine influenza Asylees people are resistant to amantadine and rimantadine. Currently the CDC recommends the use of oseltamivir or zanamivir for the prevention and treatment of infection by the virus of swine influenza.
Natural Treatment (Systemic) and prevention
From the standpoint of Systemic Medicine, both the human cell as the virus are living systems whose potential depends on their survival Biointeligencia Energy Organization, so any disease in humans of viral etiology, is literally a who will win that battle is over Biointeligencia Energy Organization.
The responsiveness and alert status of the host's immune system, in this case the man, play a vital role in the case of virus infections.
Below are described, for example, demonstrated effects of certain adaptogens used by the Medical System in the treatment of diseases where it is necessary to enhance the immune system: Astragalus membranaceus (stimulation of the phagocytic capacity of macrophages, enhancing phagocytosis of cells reticuloendothelial system, increases the activity of T lymphocytes, stimulates the natural production of interferon, inhibits the replication of certain viruses such as Coxsackie), Echinacea (enhances phagocytosis, activity of T cells producing antibodies and is ability to improve the production and operation of lymphokines, neutrophils, eosinophils and monocytes), Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) (increases the production and activity of T lymphocytes and NK helpers increases the production of interferon, inhibits the replication of human rhinovirus, the Respiratory syncytial virus and has antiviral activity against influenza A), Tabebuia avellandedae (Palo de Arco) (shown antiviral effect against influenza, enterovirus, poliovirus, herpes I and II, Epstein-Barr virus). Moreover, H5N1 virus alters the patient's humoral immunity, increasing the production of tumor necrosis factor alpha. The following adaptogens strongly decrease the production of TNF-alpha: Astragalus membranaceus, Andrographis paniculata (Kang Jang), Morinda citrifolia (Noni), Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) and Uncaria tomentosa (cat's claw).
