I think that MC and Lance know something about it. If you go to the
other Felv group, Sheila Smith's
husband is a vet in Austin,Tx and he has been giving it to his Felv
cats for quite a while. He was available
to talk to vets who were interested in using it. She would be able to
update you on the results he has had with it.
My vet was turned off by Immulan's website. Apparently the company
had been sold recently and the original
clinical trials were discontinued and the current owners were not
forthcoming with information. My vet was
not interested in working with them, and I dropped it because MeMe
was doing well with Interferon. I wish I had
more information to share, but if you track down Sheila Smith, you
should get some current information.

Does anyone have any experience in treating FeLV kitts with Immulin?
My FelV foster's new forever mom just sent me the email extract
below from her ex (who also adopts FeLV kitts). She is looking for
any info on Immulin. I wonder if it's akin to Immuno Regulin, or
even IR itself, re-packaged for cats (as opposed to dogs and horses)?
I wonder about this guy being taken for a ride---even
unintentionally--by his vet, as it sounds pricy.
I've been trying to research on the web with no success.
I've also been unable to dig up any more info on Immuno Regulin
other than what I already read several years ago--mainly 2 articles
by vets supporting use of IR by Dr Mike Lies, and Dr Karen Thomas,
>>>Immulin - appears to be a scientific breakthrough that I am
excited about. Results have been incredible. Its a boost to the
immune system that in many cases has helped them to beat their
diseases. The only issue is cost. It is a very expensive and
intensive program. I am also uncertain about the stress of making
him go to the vet so often and taking the shots themselves. Doctor
thinks pros outway cons by far, I am a little less convinced of
that but still excited about the possibilities here.<<<
Any info on Immulin, or (more up to date) info on IR would be very
welcome. Incidentally, one Google result showed an email from a
guy that said Dr Karen Thomas' experiences were available on "Jim's
website". He may mean this website -- James's -- but I've never
seen anything from a Dr Karen Thomas here??
Hugs to all and good health wishes to all your kitts,
