Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
One participant in the 194 enrolled was negative for influenza by polymerase chain reaction at randomization and was therefore excluded leaving 193 individuals started in the study.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Active Drug

Adults and adolescents weighing greater than 88 pounds will receive one 75 mg oseltamivir capsule twice daily, with or without food for a total of 5 days (10 doses). Participants one year of age and older up to a maximum weight of 88 pounds will receive a liquid form of study medication containing oseltamivir at a concentration of 15mg/ml. The dose will be based on weight:

for weight <=33 lbs, dose=30 mg, volume per dose (15mg/mL)=2 mL two times per day x 5 days (10 doses); for weight 34-51 lbs, dose=45 mg, volume per dose (15mg/mL)=3 mL two times per day x 5 days (10 doses); for weight 52-88 lbs, dose=60 mg, volume per dose (15mg/mL)= 4 mL two times per day x 5 days (10 doses)

Placebo

Identical placebo capsule twice daily for 5 days (10 doses). Participants one year of age and older up to a maximum of 88 pounds will receive a placebo syrup. The dose will be based on weight as follows: <=33 pounds,2 mL doses, two times per day; 34 - 51 pounds, 3 mL doses, two times per day; 52-88 pounds, 4 mL doses, two times per day.

Placebo: Identical placebo capsule twice daily for 5 days (10 doses). Participants one year of age and older up to a maximum of 88 pounds will receive a placebo syrup. The dose will be based on weight as follows: <=33 pounds,2 mL doses, two times per day; 34 - 51 pounds, 3 mL doses, two times per day; 52-88 pounds, 4 mL doses, two times per day.
