Researchers at the Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) together with their collaborators have developed a new cell screening method that can be used to identify potential anti-influenza drugs. They also identified two novel anti-influenza agents.

Medical Systems Virology group at the Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) at the University of Helsinki, together with its national and international collaborators, developed a new cell screening method that can be used to identify potential anti-influenza drugs. The researchers were able to identify two novel compounds with anti-influenza activity, obatoclax and gemcitabine and prove the efficacy of a previously known drug saliphenylhalamide. The study was recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Biological Chemistry and is now available online.
