AVG Overview

The isirv Antiviral Group (isirv-AVG) was established as a special interest group of isirv at the time of merger in April 2011 of the former Neuraminidase Inhibitor Susceptibility Network (NISN) with isirv. Its specific objectives are to promote understanding of the clinical use of antivirals against respiratory viruses, collate and provide up to date information on the emergence of antiviral resistance, and communicate expert commentary on preclinical and clinical development of potential novel/new antivirals. Read More


   isirv Antiviral Group (isirv-AVG) 10th Anniversary

The isirv Antiviral Group was established in 2011 following the merger of the Neuraminidase Inhibitor Susceptibility Network (NISN) with the International Society for Influenza and Other Respiratory Virus Diseases (isirv). Read more

To fulfil its objectives of promoting understanding of the development and clinical use of antivirals against respiratory viruses and the emergence of resistance, the Group has organised a series of AVG conferences on specific topics in different geographical locations plus other smaller specialist meetings and workshops.

The Group gratefully acknowledges the contribution of its partners and the generous financial support from many privateand public organisations that have ensured the success of the Group’s programme of events over the past 10 years.
