Abstract

<p>(A) Survival curves of infected mice with combination therapy of artificial surfactant with laninamivir octanoate are shown. Mice infected with an extremely high dose (3741 MLD<sub>50</sub>) of PR8 virus were treated with laninamivir octanoate. The mice were additionally administered artificial surfactant (combination therapy, red line) or normal saline solution (monotherapy, blue line) intranasally once daily during 3–14 days postinfection. Significant differences in mouse survival rates between the combination therapy and monotherapy groups were analyzed by the log-rank original method. Experiments were independently repeated three times. Percentage survival in a representative experiment is shown. (B) Mouse body weight of the combination therapy (red line) and monotherapy (blue line) groups is shown. Experiments were independently repeated three times. The percentage of mouse body weight in a representative experiment is shown. Differences in means ± SD are shown.</p
