Abstract

An independent reanalysis of 11 randomized clinical trials shows that oseltamivir treatment reduces the risk of lower respiratory tract complications requiring antibiotic treatment by 28% overall (95% confidence interval [CI], 11%-42%) and by 37% among patients with confirmed influenza infections (95% CI, 18%-52%).
