A A

The European Medicines Agency said on Thursday it was recommending no changes in the safety information for Roche's flu drug Tamiflu, following a review of possible links with psychiatric disorders. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use also recommended extending the use of Tamiflu to include prevention of influenza in children between 1 and 13 years.
