Acemannan is now made by Veterinary Products Laboratories www.vpl.com and I
don't see any indication of it not being available. There was a price jump
end of last year, how much did you pay for it? The VPL site had the name of
a vet who was involved in the original trials as their technical
representative, but I don't see anyone listed for that product now. I think
my vet may still have his name and number, but they are closed on Wed., I
will check on Thur.
When I used it, the protocol was one shot a week for six weeks (given IP)
and then one shot a month that can be given sub-q. Also, the vet for VPL
told me that you can keep the mixed Acemannan for up to a week in the fridge
and freeze it for up to a month, even though the instructions say you have
to use it in 4 hours.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Acemannan
My 8 year old cat had Feline Leukemia at age 1 1/2. We found out about
Acemannan by doing research online. It worked beautifully and he was free
of Leukemia after one year, at which time we stopped the Acemannan. He
was normal until last Dec when his bone marrow went haywire and stopped
producing platelets, white and red blood cells. Since then we've had him
on prednisone, and other meds. We went back to Acemannan and he has just
had his fifth injection (he gets one injection every week for six weeks).
I need to know what to do after his sixth injection. Does anyone know?
The lab went bankrupt; my vet can still get it from his supplier, but we
have no way to call the manufacturer to find out what is next after the
sixth injection. Last time, we went to once a month injections, but
because this is not exactly Feline Leukemia, but caused by his Feline
Leukemia, it might be a different situation.
Thanks for any suggestions.
