ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the existence of H1N1 viral infection resistant to oseltamivir at a summer camp in North Carolina during an outbreak in June 2009. It references the article "Oseltamivir-Resistant Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Virus Infection in 2 Summer Campers Receving Prophylaxis - North Carolina" in the September 2009 issue of "MMWR." A teenage girl, who had just completed a 10-day course of oseltamivir chemoprophylaxis, was again exposed to influenza, prompting a second course of the drug at a higher dose.
