UPDATE April 10, 2014 - Review raises questions about Tamiflu

GOVERNMENTS should review the use of the widely used anti-flu medication Tamiflu, scientists say after new research questioned the efficacy of the drug.

The study suggested that Tamiflu, which is used to prevent and treat influenza, shortens flu symptoms by between a day and half a day.

But the authors said there was "no good evidence" to support claims that it reduces flu-related hospital admissions or the complications of influenza.

The researchers, from The Cochrane Collaboration and the British Medical Journal (BMJ), also claimed that taking the drug could increase a person's risk of nausea and vomiting.

And when used as a preventative treatment it can stop people developing flu symptoms but may not prevent them from spreading flu to others, the authors said.


Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.


A lie cannot live.

Open Data Campaign | Tamiflu: the battle for secret drug data  

Influenza drug oseltamivir has made billions of pounds for Roche, but why won’t the company give patients and doctors access to the full clinical data? As part of theBMJ’s open data campaign, we this week launch a new site dedicated to the cause.David Payne reports

This week the BMJ, as part of its ongoing open data campaign, has launched a dedicated website aimed at persuading Roche to give doctors and patients access to the full data on oseltamivir (Tamiflu).

The new site,, displays emails and letters dating back to September 2009, when researcher Tom Jefferson first asked the company for the unpublished dataset used in a Roche supported analysis, published in 2003.1

Jefferson needed the data by the following month to update the Cochrane Collaboration’s review on neuraminidase inhibitors in healthy adults. At first the company asked him to sign a confidentiality agreement promising that he would not publish the data in full.2

Then it declined to supply it on the grounds that it had been approached by an independent expert influenza group undertaking a similar meta-analysis and wanted to avoid a conflict. Roche added that its study reports had also been shared with the regulatory authorities.

Jefferson told the company in an email: “I recognise that more people than me are interested in reviewing the trials of interventions for influenza at the moment.

“But I don’t understand why this should lead to exclusivity, or why you would believe that there would be a conflict between our plans to update our Cochrane review and the plans of the other research groups you mention.”

Jefferson’s October deadline passed. Two months later the Cochrane review, published in the BMJ,3 said that because eight of the 10 randomised controlled trials on which effectiveness claims were based were never published, the evidence could not be relied on. Also, the two published studies were funded by Roche and authored by Roche employees and external experts paid by Roche.

The review concluded: “Paucity of good data has undermined previous findings for oseltamivir’s prevention of complications from influenza. Independent randomised trials to resolve these uncertainties are needed.”



On January 23, 2013 I plan to talk about Tamiflu and the medical system.

How is it that this ineffective drug could be stockpiled by an advanced country, which spends millions of dollars of taxpayer funds. Then the hospitals, clinics and physicians prescribe the Tamiflu to sick individuals telling them it will make them feel better and reduce their influenza symptoms.

Tamiflu Doesn't Work


Shortage of Tamiflu

Roche Holding AG runs out of the liquid form of Tamiflu each year, especially this season which has a late spurt in the illness in locals around the country. We really don't know if people have come down with a verified influenza strain or another disease with similar symptoms. Many people who received the flu vaccine have come down with flu type symptoms.


As a quick fix, pharmacists can make a substitute by dissolving Tamiflu capsules in a sweet liquid, to provide the liquid form for children.

Sanofi SA producers of flu vaccines, sold out of four of the six different dosages of Fluzone seasonal flu vaccine due to unanticipated late-season demand. Production for next year's flu vaccine is already underway. It takes about two weeks for the vaccines to provide protection if the strains are a good match.

  • Manufacturers planned to produce 137 million doses of the vaccine and as of late last year, 112 million people had been vaccinated, the CDC said.
  • Sanofi produced 60 million of those doses and GlaxoSmithKline PLC had planned to make 25 million doses.
  • Novartis, AstraZeneca Plc, ID Biomedical Corp of Quebec and CSL Biotherapies are also authorized to sell flu vaccines in the United States. ID Biomedical's product is distributed by Glaxo, while Merck & Co distributes the CSL Biotherapies vaccine.
  • AstraZeneca's MedImmune unit sells FluMist, an intranasal spray approved for people aged 2 to 49. Tara Mullin.
  • Sales of Tamiflu might reach $750 million in the 2012-13 season from about $350 million in the 2011-2012 flu season.
  • Walgreen Company, the largest distributor of flu vaccines in the US not including the government, had given 5.7 million doses during the 2012-13 flu season, up from 5.3 million dollars a year ago.
