I ma wondering if anyone knows where can I purchase Interferon Alpha? My vet
said he could get if for me but it would cost 40 dollars a month for each cat.
He also said he would be able to dilute it if I could obtain it in its full
strength, which would save us a lot of money.
Thanks so much,

Of those on the list, I've only used inteferon alpha and Dimethylglycine (DMG).
Interferon is fairly affordable, while DMG is cheap and available in a number
of formats (liquid, powder, "treat"). I can't vouch for whether or not they
work. We have no studies that I know of for DMG use on FeLV+ cats, and
interferon alpha studies show possible help, but nothing that says it will
definitely improve anything.
ImmunoRegulin - I believe I spoke to Dr. Thomas (an article about her use of IR
is listed on that page) about ImmunoRegulin. If I remember right, she hasn't
used the drug for cats in a long time, but I don't think this was due to any
problem with it. She still said it had done some good.
Acemannan - Ember's first vet to treat her for FeLV had tried using this drug
on cats a long time ago, and he didn't see any use in it.
Lymphocyte T-Cell Immune Modulator - This is a relatively new product, and my
understanding is that adequate studies have not been conducted. My vet wasn't
impressed. A cat in town is getting it for something related to sneezing, and
the owner is happy with the cat's progress. I don't know anything about the
case; just that my vet talked to another vet here about it. It shouldn't hurt,
and I'm considering it.
Staph Protein A - I know nothing about this one and don't know that I've ever
heard of anyone using it.
Baypamun - <http://www.felineleukemia.org/baypamun.html> You can search the
list archives for this, but I'm not sure it's even available. That page on the
site hasn't been updated in quite awhile.
How is Jack doing today?
