In a clinical trial, Japanese and American patients who took the drug when they had the flu saw the virus wiped out, on average, in 24 hours.  The drug will be available in Japan in time for next year’s flu season, but not in the U.S. until 2019.

Clearly, there’s a lot to celebrate, so why not... Read More

The ONE Event You Need Know About
