Description: Laninamivir Octanoate, also known as CS-8958, is a long acting neuraminidase inhibitor which shows superior anti-influenza virus activity. Laninamivir octanoate and artificial surfactant combination therapy significantly increases survival of mice infected with lethal influenza H1N1 Virus. A single intranasal administration of CS-8958 showed a superior reduction of virus load in lungs in mouse infection model.
