Antivirals for systemic use
Treatment of influenza
In patients one year of age and older who present with symptoms typical of influenza, when influenza virus is circulating in the community.
Ebilfumin is indicated for the treatment of infants less than 1 year of age during a pandemic influenza outbreak (see section 5.2 of the SmPC). The treating physician should take into account the pathogenicity of the circulating strain and the underlying condition of the patient to ensure there is a potential benefit to the child.
Prevention of influenza
Post-exposure prevention in individuals 1 year of age or older following contact with a clinically diagnosed influenza case when influenza virus is circulating in the community.
The appropriate use of Ebilfumin for prevention of influenza should be determined on a case by case basis by the circumstances and the population requiring protection. In exceptional situations (e.g. in case of a mismatch between the circulating and vaccine virus strains, and a pandemic situation) seasonal prevention could be considered in individuals one year of age or older.
Ebilfumin is indicated for post-exposure prevention of influenza in infants less than 1 year of age during a pandemic influenza outbreak (see section 5.2 of the SmPC).
Ebilfumin is not a substitute for influenza vaccination.
