Arbidol is an antiviral treatment used in Russia and Chinafor influenza infection. Since 2005 it has been the number one best-selling over-the-counter drug in Russia. Umifenovir inhibits membrane fusion. Umifenovir prevents contact between the virus and target host cells. Fusion between the viral capsid and the cell membrane of the target cell is inhibited. This prevents viral entry to the target cell, and therefore protects it from infection.
