More than 250,000 people worldwide, including 36,000 people in the United States, die from influenza (flu) or complications of the flu each year. Although flu medications are available, there is a need for additional, more-targeted treatments. Finding new treatments is the focus of this research study. We are seeking healthy volunteers for a new research study at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that will evaluate the safety of an investigational medication called AVI-7100. This medication is thought to stop the flu virus from making copies of itself in the body.
