Neuraminidase inhibitors are a class of antiviral drugs whose mode of action relies on blocking the function of viral neuraminidase protein, thus preventing the virus from budding from the host cell.

Oseltamivir, Zanamivir and Peramivir belong to this class.

Unlike the M2 inhibitors, which work only against the influenza A, neuraminidase inhibitors act against both influenza A and B.
