Laurie, Interesting, I can tell you that my vet had the chance to use it about 10 years ago when he got some from a research project at his vet school and he said it was very effective in turning around anemia in FeLV cats.
Also, I spoke with several distributors and it is definitely ONLY available for research (they were pretty tight about what research was) said they wouldn't sell it to my vet unless he could convince them with his application (written, not on the phone) to buy it, that he was doing a research project and would be producing a paper. It does not have any approval to be used as a treatment (like LTCI has) on any animal or human for any reason. If your vet can get it, please tell him to get it for me and he can ship it to my vet. I will gladly pay all costs to give this a try. Or, if anybody knows a biological researcher...............

Laurie Hi Laurie - I do know a little about this product. The most recent studies looking at this product showed that it did not help kitties with FeLV, which is why it isn't routinely recommended. Because of this, I have never used it. I suppose if someone wanted to try it anyway they would have to contact the drug distributors to see how to get their hands on it. I don't think it is only for research purposes, but can't say that for sure. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
