How the Virus Replicates
Usually, the virus targets the upper respiratory tract and has many was to invade a host. The virus enters the host through an endosome and enters the nucleus, but the virus RNA is negative and then transported into positive by polymerase proteins and exported out of the nucleus (Lytic Cycle).
Medicines: Peramivir, Zanamivir, OseltamivirPeramivir, which is a neuraminidase inhibitor of neuraminidase that blocks the virus from being replicated. Zanamivir, helps treat influenza A and B by the respiratory tract as a neuraminidase inhibitor. Oseltamivir works the same as Zanamivir, but is in capsule form.
