Rimantadine antiviral drug, molecular model. This drug, marketed as Flumadine, is used to treat influenza A infection. It interferes with an influenzavirus A ion channel protein, rendering the virus unable to shed its protein coat once inside a cell. As a result it cannot replicate its genetic material and infect further cells. Atoms in this model are represented by coloured spheres; carbon is green, hydrogen is white and nitrogen is blue.
