Adamantane antivirals

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Adamantane antivirals are only active against influenza A virus, an RNA virus, but has no action against influenza B virus. A viral membrane protein, M2, functions as an ion channel at two stages of the viral replication within the host cell. These stages are the fusion of viral membrane and endosome membrane, and the assembly and release of new virions. Adamantane antivirals block this ion channel.
