    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:02 Adamantane and Neuraminidase Inhibitors are two types of antiviral drugs for influenza.

    00:08 Remember sadly? We Marie kondo those because Adamantanes were the first influenza drugs available, but they're just not effective anymore because they're resistant influenza A and B are now resistant to them.

    00:22 So resistance to neuraminidase inhibitors is uncommon.

    00:27 There's the good news.

    00:29 So neuraminidase inhibitors are highly active against both influenza and be currently.

    00:36 Let's hope it stays that way NI's are used to prevent and treat after exposure to influenza A or B.

    00:45 So they'll help shorten the duration and the severity of the symptoms your patient will experience.

    00:50 Now if we use NI's we should start it again 48 hours with symptoms for effective impact on the duration of the symptoms NI's could blunt the response to live attenuated virus, so maintain a two-day window before the vaccine and a two-week window after the vaccine before a patient receives NI's Thank you for watching our video today.
