ABSTRACT
The article reports on two girls in a summer camp in North Carolina contacting influenza A(H1N1) virus resistant to oseltamivir, a neurominidase inhibitor commonly used for medication and chemoprophylaxis. In this case, the occurrence of an oseltamivir resistant A(H1N1) virus cannot be established but observed that receiving oseltamivir chemoprophylaxis is no guarantee preventing the A(H1N1) virus. Thus, guidelines for handling antiviral medications in the remedy and deterrent of influenza were issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
