Study doubts effectiveness of Tamiflu
NEW YORK (WABC) -- There are new doubts about the effectiveness of the popular flu drug Tamiflu.
Researchers at the Cochrane Collaboration say most of the data on Tamiflu is incomplete and the claims that Tamiflu has the ability to prevent the spread of the virus have not been proven in trials.
Yet, this is one of the reasons governments worldwide spend billions of dollars stockpiling Tamiflu.
The FDA is thought to have the complete reports, but has not yet responded to requests for them.
