In the wake of the growing bird flu outbreak, China’s SFDA will fast-track approvals of a flu treatment – not a vaccine – known as peramivir (peramivir sodium chloride injection). The drug is a neuraminidase inhibitor, which works by preventing the virus from moving from an infected cell to infect other cells. Guangzhou Nanxin Pharma has been approved to produce the medicine, and it expects to begin distributing the drug in 30 days. Other China pharmas have also filed for approval to make the drug or conduct human clinical trials
Peramivir is an experimental antiviral drug developed by BioCryst Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of influenza. It has been authorized for the emergency use of treatment of certain hospitalized patients with known or suspected 2009 H1N1 influenza.
