I have to be honest, I am skeptical myself. In general, it is a group of individuals looking to find a treatment for AIDS/HIV in people and the cats were a model for disease (I hate that they do this, but if they do I will learn everything I possibly can from it). It is somewhat old so I do not know what, if anything has come of it, but the results are interesting none the less.
Here is the website I got this information from, it goes into more detail. http://www2.arkansas.net/~artg/fi00007.htm I will email this man Van Dyke and if he responds will keep you updated.
