Xofluza Will Be a New Antiviral to Treat the Flu

Xofluza (zoh-FLOO-zuh, baloxavir) will be the first new oral antiviral for treating influenza in nearly 20 years.

Think of Xofluza as similar to oseltamivir (Tamiflu).

They're both antivirals that reduce flu symptoms by about a day in otherwise healthy patients...if started within 48 hours of symptom onset.
