Confirmation names for influenza strains

The Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB) has confirmed the Dutch translation for the active substances for influenza strains for the coming season.

Marketing authorisation holders are obliged to use the Dutch translation. The aim is to achieve a uniform listing of the active substances in the Netherlands.

The medicinal products review committee CHMP confirmed the strains for the 2015/2016 season during a meeting in March 2015. Marketing authorisation holders are requested to use the translation list in the product information.
