Re: [Felvtalk] LTCI injections ??

2017-01-20 Thread Katherine K.
I used LTCI when my 11 yo was first diagnosed. I believe it helped bring
him back from a very low point (anemia, anorexia, etc). He stayed on it for
about a year, then once he was stable I felt it wasn't worth the
continued cost, so we stopped.

Hi Daniella,

 I'm sorry to hear that your FurKid is declining. What is she currently getting, treatment wise? I have mine on interferon and DMG. For when they start to show symptoms again, I have ImmunoRegulin at my Vets, It's been there almost a year.
http://www.felineleukemia.org/hope.html
I have been in contact with Dr. Thomas (she's on another list I frequent) and she feels it can be effective. I can't recall why I didn't choose to try LTCI, but I know there was a reason. Probably that I couldn't find any real evidence that it helped.
 Although the link on the website says it's only available thru a Vet, that's not true.
http://www.revivalanimal.com/ImmunoRegulin-EqStim.html
 And it's about half the price. But, I keep it at the Vet's, because it has to be given IV, and that's tough to do by yourself. 
You might want to check into a second opinion, maybe find a Vet that is willing to be more proactive. Most Vet's don't seem to know much about FeLV, and often advise euthanasia. It may be that they've found caregivers unwilling to treat.I've found that having a Vet who is at least willing to try things is a game-changer. Mine has allowed me to keepcertain antibiotics and anantiviralon hand to deal with possible problems quickly, before they can get a hold.

I have also used immunoregulin successfully, but for bad upper respiratory

stimulate white or red blood cell production, just stimulates general immune

Re: [Felvtalk] LTCI treatment experience?

2014-02-07 Thread lernermichelle

Daniella,

I have used LTCI, but it's hard to answer your question because you do not say 
what your cat has been diagnosed with, and honestly it sounds like she has not 
been diagnosed with anything but FeLV, which is not what usually actually makes 
them sick. FeLV is just a very suppressed immune system. It can lead to many 
different diseases, from lymphoma to infections to primary anemia. There are 
treatments available for all of these things (though when effective usually 
only for a limited time, unless it's a basic infection that can be cured with 
antibiotics). But it really depends on getting an actual diagnosis, which means 
blood work and possibly x-rays or ultrasound depending on the blood work. If 
your vet is just saying it's the FeLV, I would take her to a different vet, 
preferably an internist, and find out what is actually wrong. 

I used LTCI successfully for my FIV+ cat when he had very low white blood cell 
counts. I gave it once/week for a month and then less frequently and it raised 
his white blood cell count quite a bit. It apparently can also help primary 
anemia (red blood cell count low) when it is severe. But it is not going to 
help cancer (steroids and/or chemo might for a few months though). It might 
help fight an infection, by raising the white blood cell production, but 
antibiotics would also be necessary. 

It is understandable if you do not want to do anything very invasive or 
expensive if it will not give her more time. But treating an infection is 
worthwhile if that is what she has. If she has lymphoma, just putting her on  
high dose of prednisone or dexamethasone, which are steroids, is cheap and does 
not make them feel bad, it makes them feel good, and can give them weeks or 
months of feeling relatively ok. If it's dry FIP, there are new medications 
that have cured some cats (though I don't know if FeLV+), and high doses of 
steroids can help with quality of life for a while. But you don't want to give 
steroids if it's an infection. 

So if the problem is low white blood cell counts and an infection, I would 
recommend LTCI. Also I would try it if red blood cell anemia is severe and 
appears to come from the bone marrow shutting down from the virus rather than 
from cancer or an auto-immune reaction to something. But I would find out what 
the problem actually is first, and go from there. At least do blood work.

Michelle

Re: [Felvtalk] LTCI treatment experience?

2014-02-07 Thread lernermichelle

Just to drive my point home, my double positive (FeLV+ and FIV+) cat Patches 
got very lethargic and sick and my local vet, who had just seen one of my other 
positive cats die of FIP, told me it was probably FIP. But he did blood work 
and she turned out to be diabetic and was ketotic from it not being treated. I 
took her to an internist at a hospital and she was hospitalized for 3 days on 
fluids and insulin, and they got her regulated and back to normal. We tested 
her urine and gave her a low dose of insulin twice/day for a long time, a 
couple years I think. She then got hyperthyroidism and needed medication for 
that too. But she was really fat and happy and energetic. She then eventually 
got lymphoma, but even then we caught it early and she responded really well to 
chemo for a while and was really happy still. But then she stopped responding 
to the chemo and it was the lymphoma that killed her. But she was 9 years old 
at that point and would have died a lot earlier if we had assumed it was her 
FeLV every time she got sick and not looked for the actual problem and treated 
it. 

Of my other 5 positives, 3 got lymphoma and the other 2 got FIP. That is what 
killed them. Not the FeLV, though the FeLV is probably why they got lymphoma 
and FIP.

 Hi, I have been using LTCI on my felk kitten and she has been doing great!
 She was 1lb runt who had struggled to put any weights even when she was 3 to

 become so healthy - now she weighs almost 7lb!
  
 Anyway, I am looking for someone who may want to split the vials with me - I 
 normally purchase 10 vials - but since she is on LTCI for every 2 to 3 weeks

 10 vials is $440 to 450 wiht tax plus shipping - please contact me if you are 
 interested in doing so.

Hi, Thank you for asking..
 
Originally, there was a total of 11 felk kittens we had - and the kitten I 
mentioned to you who has been on LTCI, her name is Orphie - she was the 
smallest of all - the next smallest kitten, Little Blue unfortunately passed 
away, when she was seven weeks old, and Orphie almost died a couple of times 
also.. as mentiohned, she just never gained weight though she ate pretty well - 
 and all of sudden she stopped eating for a few times - and we made sure to 
keepn an close eye on them and give her subq fluid, everytime that happens and 
every time they have diarreah...
 
And we took seven of the larger kitteis to a sanctuary in Iowa.and I kept 
three smallest kittens - among those three, her brother Raisenette, and Wooley 
passed away due to FIP - I was so devastated.. among 7 kittens who went to 
Iowa, two kittens passed away, which also has been devastating --- now I have 
Orphie who has been on LTCI for about 6 months or so -- my Gigner who is 8 
years old, who also is felk kitty gets LTCI - but not often.. I used to give 
Orphine twice a week - split vials with Wooley and Raisenette as I could not 
afford, and also because they were so small to get a whole vial -- 
 
Now Orphie and Ginger gets a shot every two to three weeks -

Hi Pam,

LTCI is short for lymphocyte t-cell immune modulator.  It is supposed to 
increase the body's production of t-cells, the killer cells who fight viruses.  
It ain't cheap, but it worked for us when we needed it last summer and I 
believe it bought us some good quality time with Aggie.  We started it when her 
WBCs were in decline, and after a brief, expected dip--all levels went into the 
normal range.  I don't know if it will work for everyone, but I sure loved my 
last year with my Aggie cat that I believe LTCI gave to us.

Contact your vet and bring them the information on the site.  If you have them 
order it directly through the company as opposed to a distributor, you will 
save some money.  It was about $45 a shot through T-cyte the last time I 
ordered it.  Your vet can show you how to give the shots at home to save a 
little more money.

Good luck Pam, I'm thinking of you and your cat.

Thank you for the info that it helped with your FeLV baby's stomatitis. I
wish I had had that info 8 years ago!

Well, having all of his teeth removed was the real way he got past it. :P
What amazes me is that usually by the time cats show symptoms, the virus is
really running rampant. But since his oral surgery and the introduction of
LTCI, he hasn't had any kind of symptoms at all again, and his bloodwork now
is better than it was then. Our vet said she'd never seen anything like it
before. I don't know if it's the LTCI or not, for sure, but if it ain't
broke...

Hi Sean,Tcyte (Dr. Beardsley) was the original company who developed the LTCI.  
The LTCI was very reasonably priced.  Tcyte was in the midst of trials. The 
marketing rights? were sold to Imulan in the midst of the initial trials, who 
then inflated the price terribly. Imulan then sold (probably the marketing 
rights) to Agrilabs.I'm glad that Tcyte is once again marketing the LTCI.I also 
hope Dr. Beardsley further develops this product.El

hi Andy,
 
great, thanks that does help.  Sounds like it's intravenous, aka in the
vein, so I would not be permitted/able to do that.  Things like the pepcid

if they are willing.
 
Guess that crosses Whimsy off the list since taking him to the vet gives him

It isn't intravenous at all.  When I said it wasn't under the skin like like

usually given in her hind flank.  Here is the info from the product insert:
 
Lymphocyte T-Cell Immunomodulator is administered
by subcutaneous injection of 1 ml upon diagnosis of
the presence of FIV or FeLV disease.
 
I know a great many people who give the shot themselves--and it isn't into the

Hi Andy,

The Internet is getting smaller and smaller everyday.  I have been reading
your posts on 910 pets about Aggie.  I guess when we get that bad news about
our fur babies we head for the web to learn more.  I so happy for you and
Aggie that she doing well.

 Our vet has Kelsea on Alpha Interferon 7 days on then 7 day off.  As of
Tuesday her CBC are great. She also very playful and great appetite. She is
gaining a little over a 1pound a month. Which is right on track for a
kitten.  Her attitude is awesome. All the vet tech at the veterinary
hospital we bring her to here in MA love her. I been the Mass Veterinary
Hospital so much that Kelsea that the  vet and I are on first name basis .

Since Aggie is asymptomatic does this meaning she still test postive for
FeLV even thou she showing no other signs of FeLV. I have heard of some cats
may test negtive after LTCI. Did Aggie FeLV show up in the  bone marrow, or
just the blood?

Part of me wants to put her on LTCI now, but the other parts just wants to
wait and see how she does.   Like you said this won't continue on forever,
but for now--everyday is a party with her.

Take care,
Sharon

 Re: :LTCH--I've had reasonable success with LTCI.  If you do a search in

 Aggie.  She's still kicking at 6 and a half years.  I've had her on Alpha
 Interferon every day of her life, 1 cc every morning (and after she suffered
 a seizure of unknown cause, every morning and evening).  She's also been on
 LTCI every two weeks since her WBC and neutrophils went downhill last
 Spring.  Her bloodwork has rebounded nicely, and she is currently
 asymptomatic, and very playful with a fine appetite and attitude.  I know
 this won't continue on forever, but for now--every day is a party with her.

 About the interferon, Aggie has been on it every day of her life from the
 time we adopted her.  She had zero symptoms of anything FELV related until
 she developed adenocarcinoma of the salivary gland (cancer) at the age of 5.
  We had that removed in the Summer of 09, and as I mentioned above--she's
 still here.  I think the Interferon may have played a role in keeping her
 healthy for so long.  It isn't terribly expensive, at any rate.

2010-12-10 Thread Andy Domek

While Aggie doesn't have symptoms outwardly at present, she has always tested 
positive on bothe Elisa test and IFA tests from the time she was 3 months old.  
We've had her tested no less than 7 or 8 time--the most recent being after her 
cancer surgery in 2009.
 
She's been on LTCI every two weeks since June, so if she's still kicking in 
March or April of 2011, we might have her retested for the heck of it.  I doubt 
she will have seroconverted, but as you will know from 910 pets and others on 
this blog--it has apparently happened with others.  Not counting on it, but 
that sure would be nice.  If that did happen, I would still consider her as a 
positive, jut that there isn't enough virus to show up on tests.

 Hi,
 
 
 
 I want to introduce myself and my very beautiful Ragdoll kitten Kelsea who
 tested positive for FeLV in the bone marrow ( I know it is not a good thing)
 .  Kelsea was diagnose with FeLV about 8 weeks ago.  Right now she is doing
 wonderful on the treatment plan her vet has her on, which includes
 Interferon, Atopic and a steroid.  She was on dimethylgycine to build up her
 red blood cells, she has been off the dimethlgycine for about two weeks now.
 
 
 
 At this point all her all her blood work is normal.  She is putting on
 weight; over 2 pounds since her diagnoses. To look at this little one you
 would not even know she was sick. : )
 
 
 
 I’m hoping someone could let me know anything about LTCI.  I’m not thinking
 about change Kelsea’s med now, since she is doing so well.  I would just
 like a little more information on LTCI. i.e. what kind of success has it had
 in FeLV.  I am also wondering what are the chances the FeLV will go into
 remission if it is in the bone marrow? Kelsea’s vet tell me that the chances
 are very low, but I just need to know if it has happen to anyone out there.

Re: :LTCH--I've had reasonable success with LTCI.  If you do a search in the 
archives, you can read what I've written about my journey with my cat, Aggie.  
She's still kicking at 6 and a half years.  I've had her on Alpha Interferon 
every day of her life, 1 cc every morning (and after she suffered a seizure of 
unknown cause, every morning and evening).  She's also been on LTCI every two 
weeks since her WBC and neutrophils went downhill last Spring.  Her bloodwork 
has rebounded nicely, and she is currently asymptomatic, and very playful with 
a fine appetite and attitude.  I know this won't continue on forever, but for 
now--every day is a party with her.  
 
About the interferon, Aggie has been on it every day of her life from the time 
we adopted her.  She had zero symptoms of anything FELV related until she 
developed adenocarcinoma of the salivary gland (cancer) at the age of 5.  We 
had that removed in the Summer of 09, and as I mentioned above--she's still 
here.  I think the Interferon may have played a role in keeping her healthy for 
so long.  It isn't terribly expensive, at any rate.

 Hi all,
 
 This is in reply to the poster  who asked about anyone with recent successes 
 with LTCI.  My 6 year old FELV + (since birth) cat, Aggie, has been on LTCI 
 since June and her bloodwork has improved a great deal.  For the first time 
 in her life, her WBC is firmly in the normal range.  Prior to this, low 
 normal of 4.2 was the best we had, and that was not often that it was that 
 high.  Usually 3.8 or 4.0 when we would run tests.  It was 4.8 as of the last 
 test a month or two ago (up from 2.0) two months prior.  
 
 She gets a shot every two weeks.  We started her when aspects of her 
 bloodwork started going steadily downhill: neutrophils, WBC, and platelets.  
 We were going to stretch it out to monthly, but she had a seizure when we 
 went longer (though now I suspect it might have been the insecticide that was 
 sprayed outside the house a few days before, --and she likes to sit at the 
 screen door) and it is two weeks for the forseeable future.  No seizures in 3 
 months (knock on wood), weight is good, and most recent bloodwork has been 
 the best of her life.  She also gets Alpha interferon daily (since birth--so 
 for 6 and a half years now), and I mix a little bit of astragalus into her 
 wet food every night (for the last year--since her surgery to remove an 
 adenocarcinoma of the salivary gland in July of 2009).
 
 While I don't think the LTCI is a cure, we did notice an improvement in 
 bloodwork, and the weight she started to lose came back.  I think it is 
 probably keeping her head above water.  I get weird when I talk about her 
 success--I'm always afraid I'm going to jinx her or something.  Stupid, I 
 know.
 
 I'm sorry I don't post more--when I try to hit the reply button at the 
 bottom of the archives page, it tells me it can't process my request.  But 
 hopefully this answers some of your questions!
 
 Happy to answer any more you may have.

It is from the Imulan Company and it's called LTCI. There has been increased

I truly believe their health has been improved with this product. We lost

2-3 weeks with anemia, but is trying hard to rally back. He became so anemic a 
few weeks ago and I thought we were going to lose him. I think part of it may 
be 
due to trying to go 2 months and more between injections. Before that-they were 
both in the high 30s with HCT, and actually Rosie's last HCT was on 7/24 and it 
was 46.5. I started the treatments before they became ill, some people begin it

Thank you for the information on the LTC1.  What about Interferon??
I rescued a kitten a few weeks ago and he is FelV positive, otherwise healthy 
and showing no symptoms.  I have him isolated in a room away from my other cats 
and am trying to keep him comfortable.  I am trying to find him a home where he 
can be an only cat and will be kept indoors but I know this will be difficult.  
I am feeling kind of hopeless as it sounds like many of your sweet cats didn't 
make it past 1 year.  My vet said he could live many years if kept in the right 
environment but now I am not sure this is true.
I appreciate your feedback.  I hope I can find a home for Little as he is such 
a nice boy.  If you know of any sites where I can post his pic please et me 
know as I don't ant to give up yet.

Re: [Felvtalk] LTCI etc..Interferon Heidi

2010-08-07 Thread Alice Flowers
We were giving all 6 kittens Interferon once a day 1cc orally. After the 4 
brothers passed, we went to 2x a day after reading that it doesn't keep the 
virus from multiplying the full 24 hours. Plus, our cats have never had a 
reaction to taking it once a day, they even come in the kitchen and sit when 
it's time for the little squirt. We are all just scrambling for any hope. I am 
lucky that our vet really cares for our kitties and supports us in obtaining 
the 
LTCI for us and is just a phone call away. Here is the passage from that 
document on Interferon:
--


#1) NEVER give with food. Inteferon breaks down in the stomach with stomach 
acid. Always squirt it directly into the mouth where it is absorbed in the 
mouth 
and throat lining. 
#2) ALWAYS keep refridgerated. It's useless if it hits room temperature. Keep 
unused dilutions frozen until needed. It's unknown how long Interferon stays 
effective in the fridge. Keep unused dilutions frozen until needed. 
#3) It's USELESS to do on/off dosing. It MUST be given every 24 hours to 
maintain consistent levels in the bloodstream. (See excerpts below regarding 
peaks and valleys). It must be kept in the blood at all times. On/Off protocols 
are worthless because it progresses forward in times of no intervention. 
It is relatively new, and being used off-label which means no studies were 
done for FDA approval in animals. The use of Interferon for feline viruses was 
experimental and the results that vets who use it are seeing are being shared 
and tried by others. Most of the medications used in veterinary practise are 
off-label human medications that have FDA approvals based on human trials and 
you will not find specific studies done on cats or dogs unless the drug was 
specifically developed for, and tested in animals for FDA approval. 
Interferon is Interferon. It acts the same way in cats as it does in humans. 
The 
recent understanding that low doses can be as effective as the higher, more 
toxic doses and a better understanding of diluting and freezing the Interferon 
to extend its shelf life has meant great strides in it's use in veterinary 
medicine. The purpose of low dose Interferon in cats is to mimic the same 
levels 
that are naturally produced in response to a viral attack. 
Many people ask what is the connection between human viral treatments and 
feline, and why should I care? The connection is this. Viruses all work the 
same 
way. They may be species specific, but their biochemical mechanisms are the 
same. Just as we use human Amoxycillin to treat bacterial infections in both 
humans and cats, so too can human anti-virals work to help reduce viral loads 
in 
cats. Interferon works the same way against the Hepatitis C virus in humans. 
If you read the La Roche link you will see that the primary functions of 
Interferon are: anti-viral, anti-proliferative and immunomodulatory. It 
interferes with the virus replication. By keeping the level of the virus down 
in the host's system it allows the cat's own weakened immune system to help 
suppress symptoms. The lower dose in veterinary practise is not designed to 
eradicate the virus as it is with Hepatitis C. Cats chronically infected with 
FIV or Herpes will always have the virus, so the high dosage therapy is of 
really no use. The idea is to either replace or supplement the levels of 
natural 
Interferon the cat is either not producing or not producing enough of. 
Interferons are natural virus killers. There are definitely some immune 
boosting 
benefits to Interferon but it's primary function is to keep the viral load in 
the system down. 

WHY IS DAILY DOSING BETTER?
Jere Hough
Three Times Weekly Is A Terribly Poor Way to Dose Interferon 
This is a great article and also discusses the development of longer acting 
pegylated interferons to better manage the peak and valley effects of the 
current generation of Interferons: 
“PEAKS AND VALLEYS - Because interferon has a half-life in serum of only about 
7 
-10 hours. This means it peaks in the body at about 12 hours and is then 
rapidly 
metabolized and excreted. At 24 hours after injection it is barely measurable. 
By 36 hours it is not detectable with current measurements. During this peak 
the 
is a rapid, dramatic drop in viral load. As the levels of interferons quickly 
drop to negligible levels at about 24 hours viral loads start rapidly climbing 
again. By 48 or especially 72 hours much of the gain in viral reduction has 
been 
lost. 
In other words, viral loads in the body fluctuate directly and rapidly along 
with levels of interferon in serum, and when plotted on a graph look like a 
sine 
wave, or a roller coaster. This graph, along with a description of this 
phenomena, can be viewed on many websites and texts on the subject, including 
the http://www.roche-hepc.com/ page. These peaks and valleys have been followed 
for days in human subjects, and are invariably similar in those who respond to 
IFN.

Hello all,
 
I have a three year old cat, Mr. Darcy that is Felv+ and is in the last stages 
of his disease as best as the vet and I can tell.  He was symptom free (we 
didn't know that he was Felv+until then) until 6 months ago when he snuck 
outside and contracted an URI. He was tested for Felv+ and it was positive. 
After we got rid of the URI he still was symptomatic and anemic, so we knew he 
was definetly in one of the later stages of his leukemia.  
 
We've had him on Interferon, which seems to help him slightly and he's now on 
it everyday. We also have been giving him Science Diet A/D to help give him 
calories and bring some weight back on him, he's only at 7 lbs 5 oz, which is 
not good.
 
He's stopped eating the A/D so we are starting to assist feed him at night.  
Anything we can do to help him would be great.  Is there a website with 
information on this LTCI and where can you get it. Our vet isn't up on 
everything leukemia/Felv, so she doesn't know much. 
 
Thanks so much!

Jennifer, have you consulted a vet who knows more about FeLV?  That
could be crucial in Mr. Darcy's treatment.  You can just call vets in
your local area and ask if they are knowledgeable about FeLV, and if so
make an appointment with one of them and get him checked out.  If
nothing else, you'd be more sure about where Mr. Darcy stands.  Good

Re: [Felvtalk] LTCI by Imulan

2009-01-12 Thread jbero
Jenny,

I am sorry to hear about your situation.  I had a very ill felv cat that 
weighted less than 4 pounds when I got her and was severely anemic.  An 
alternative vet that I saw suggested something for the anemia - anem-o-aid I 
belive,  I will look when I get home.  
 
Initially, she received a blood transfusion and was on steroids/antibiotics for 
a time and I force fed her for two weeks.  Eventually, she improved and gained 
2 lbs.  Unfortunately, she became severely anemic again and stoutly refused to 
eat.  She quickly went downhill and I had to let her go at that point.  Anyway, 
it is helpful to know if she is having a hemolytic anemia as this can sometimes 
be stopped with steroids and specific antibiotics.  You can generally diagnose 
this on smear of blood under the microscope.

The holistic vet also prescribed Wei Qi booster to boost the immune system.  I 
have also heard of something called Acemannan (Carrisyn) and am currently 
working on finding more information about it.  I will keep you informed of 
whatever I can.  Good luck and God bless.

Jennifer,
I can't help with the Interferon but can with the assist feeding.  There is a 
Yahoo Assist Feeding that has some great files on assist feeding.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/Feline-Assisted-Feeding/

Just about any canned food can be used.  I blenderize the food with a little 
liquid and syringe feed the mixture.  I add the supplements to the mixture to 
avoid the hassles of pilling.   

For short term assist feeding meat baby food with no onions or garlic is easy 
to assist feed.  Many kitties will lick it off a coated baby spoon or it is 
easy to syringe feed.  

Kitten canned food is higher in calories than the A/D.  You want to get the 
biggest bang per oz with whatever food you feed.

Enjoy the time you have.  No one, not person or cat or mouse, is  
guaranteed a minute of life.  If we spend all our time wondering when  
we or our friends may leave, we will deprive ourselves of their  
happiness and wisdom and we will prevent them from loving us and
