Gloria, Slight math error, 3 million units cut with 1000 ml of saline gives you 3000 units per ml and this can be frozen indefinitely. You usually break that up into one ml containers and freeze. When you need one, thaw it out and cut with 100 ml of saline and that gives you 30 IU per ml. Island always said you shouldn't freeze it after the final dilution, but I don't know if that is true or not.

The Island Pharmacy article on interferon alpha is here: http://www.islandpharmacy.com/site/1420401/page/769212 Somewhere I read and heard that it was ok to refreeze it, so have been doing that but the Island Pharmacy article says not to do that. I know that there are a lot of diverse "views" and not always "truths" known about oral low dose interferon alpha. When I've bought it locally, I get a vial which contains "3 million units per 0.5ml" . This is mixed in with 1000 ml sterile saline solution, and yields 30 units per ml. . So at this point, Island Pharmacy says not to refreeze it. Just wondering if anyone has any other opinions or info on it? Thanks!
