Swine Flu and Pharmaceutical Company of India

An Indian pharmaceutical company claims that it can increase its production of antiviral drug named “FLUVIR” or “Tamiflu” to combat swine flu. Hetero Drugs Limited in Hyderabad India is the only supplier in India licensed by Swiss-based Roche to manufacture this flu drug.

Roche is working closely with the World Health Organization (WHO) and Governments around the world to make the oral antiviral medication Tamiflu available to patients in need following the increased reports of outbreaks of swine flu. The WHO and US CDC report Tamiflu is active against this new swine flu virus A (H1N1).

Roche can produce 400 million treatments of Tamiflu over a 12-month period, said James Smith, the drugmaker’s medical leader for Tamiflu, in an interview. “Production capacity now basically outstrips demand.”

Roche had Tamiflu sales totaling 609 million Swiss francs ($527 million) in 2008, according to the company’s annual report.

    yes this is a possibility.I had also read that this virus has been artificial spread via Swiss container…..and a Swiss company is the only supplier of its drug on a large scale.

  3. A government doctor told me that the swine flu has been engineered by pharmaceutical companies so that their existing stocks of flu vaccines can be sold out. I wonder if it’s true.
