During April, a collaboration of Asian and European laboratories has analysed 300,000 possible drug components against the avian flu virus H5N1 using the EGEE Grid infrastructure. The goal was to find potential compounds that can inhibit the activities of an enzyme on the surface of the influenza virus, the so-called neuraminidase, subtype N1. Using the Grid to identify the most promising leads for biological tests could speed up the development process for drugs against the influenza virus.
