Australia records Tamiflu-resistant swine case
Posted Fri Sep 11, 2009 6:03pm AEST
A Perth man has contracted the first known Australian case of swine flu that is resistant to the main antiviral drug Tamiflu.

The 38-year-old man, with a weakened immune system, developed a resistant strain of the virus after initially responding well to the drug.

The Health Department says there is no evidence the virus has spread to other people and it does not pose a risk to the wider public.

Thanks Dragon,been waiting for this one.
Did you know, as willowbark was the founding herb in the invention of aspirin as we know it today....the chinese herb star anise is the founding herb in the Tamiflu drug.Funny how the World Health Org does not tell us this.
Star anise has had unusual popularity this last twelve months and due to demand ,the price has skyrocketed.

This is reportedly, another Chinese herb that has showed promising results in the Labs.

Chinese plant root kills H1N1 flu in lab tests

Chinese scientists have found that the root of the Ferula assa-foetida plant, also called “Dung of the Devil”, kills H1N1 swine flu in lab experiments. The plant root, used during the Spanish flu epidemic is shown to have powerful effects against H1N1 flu. The results showed that "Dung of the Devil" was more effective against H1N1 flu than antiviral drugs currently on the market.

The plant is called “Dung of the Devil” because of the odor released when cooked. The new study confirmed the plant root has antiviral properties that could lead to the development of new swine flu drugs
