Washington: In a new study, an experimental drug has shown promise in treating influenza, preventing lung injury and death from the virus in preclinical studies.University of Maryland School of Medicine researchers found that a drug called Eritoran could protect mice from death after they have been infected with a lethal dose of influenza virus.The potential value of this drug as single therapy or in combination with antivirals is further supported by previous research that found that it is safe for use in humans.The findings are of particular interest to scientists now that the latest deadly strain of flu, H7N9, is spreading in China - 82 people in China had been infected with the new strain of flu virus as of April 26, and 17 had died.
