      Elfalki, F.; Ihazmad, H.; Bimouhen, A.; Regragui, Z.; Benkaroum, S.; Bakri, Y.; Barakat, A. (‎2016)‎
      We monitored phenotypic and genotypic susceptibility of influenza viruses circulating in Morocco during 2014-2015 to oseltamivir and zanamivir. Throat and nasal swab specimens were collected from outpatients [‎with influenza-like illness]‎ and inpatients [‎with severe acute respiratory illness]‎ and tested for influenza viruses using real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Positive samples were inoculated in MDCK cells and virus phenotypic susceptibility to neuraminidase inhibitors [‎NAIs]‎ was assessed using fluorescent NA inhibition. ...
