There are 2 clinical trials
The purposes of this study are to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (affect the body has on a drug), and pharmacodynamics (affect the drug has on the body) and safety of an experimental intravenous (within a vein) flu medication, peramivir, in children. Participants will include 63 hospitalized children with confirmed flu. Children will be grouped according to age and younger children will not receive drug until safety data from the groups of older children are reviewed. Hospitalized children may receive up to 5 doses of peramivir. Study procedures include: nasal/throat swabs, reporting any experienced side effects, physical examination including assessment of the nervous system, and blood sample collection. Participants will be involved in study related procedures for up to 28 days.

This clinical study will collect fresh samples and perform laboratory testing on fresh and archived samples as described in the protocol.
The IFV-RSV Panel is an in vitro PCR-based molecular diagnostic assay for the simultaneous qualitative detection of nucleic acids for Influenza A (including H1, 2009 H1N1, H275Y mutation of 2009 H1N1, H3), Influenza B, and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) (A and B) on nasal swab (NS) direct to cartridge or nasopharyngeal swabs (NP) in viral transport media (VTM) in adults, adolescents, and children. --- H275Y ---
Description: Product Performance will be assessed based on samples collected in 2015/2016 season (average of 6 months) and archived samples.Measure: Product performance as measured by positive and negative agreement to a predicate Time: Specimen collected during the IFV-RSV season 2015/2016 will be tested within 1 day of enrollment. The Product Performance will be assessed at study completion, an average of 6 months.
