Why isn't everyone using LTCI if it will change a negative to a positive? What exactly is LTCI. What does it entail? Thanks for any information you can tell me.

GrayKitty has been on the LTCI for over 6 months. He has been testing negative for the last 2-3 months. Previously, he had gone through 2 blood transfusions to help deal with his anemia. He is also using Interferon, 1 week on and 1 week off. Sent from my iPhone On Sep 19, 2009, at 6:51 PM, "S.
