12 Jul 2010Oseltamvir, marketed by Roche as Tomiflu, is an antiviral agent that is required to be given to children, under 2 year of age, with established diagnosis or strong suspicion of influenza who are likely to develop complications. It is best given within 48 hours of onset of symptoms. Given subsequently, the beneficial effect is yet there but only upto a point.
