Rimantadine Kids Pharmacodynamics
Rimantadine is an antiviral agent, an adamantane derivative; it is active against various strains of influenza A virus. Being a weak base, rimantadine acts by increasing the pH of the endosomes, the membrane vacuoles that surround the viral particles after they enter the cell. Preventing acidification in these vacuoles blocks the fusion of the viral envelope with the endosome membrane, thus preventing the transfer of viral genetic material into the cell cytoplasm. Rimantadine also inhibits the exit of viral particles from the cell, i.e. it interrupts the transcription of the viral genome.

 

Indications
Prevention and early treatment of influenza A in children over 1 year of age.
Rimantadine prophylaxis may be effective in contacts with influenza patients at home, in the spread of infection in closed groups and at high risk of the disease during influenza epidemics.
