    I'll check it out. yes, it's intravenous and supposed to be really toxic for kidneys but I keep reading that it works well...

    i think they give saline or water or some fluid with it to make it safer....

    that's what I heard too-but Mary Schweitzer says on her website that she took it when she had to discontinue Ampligen and it messed up her liver so she had to stop. I'm still hoping that Ampligen will just get approved but am looking around for some alternatives in case it doesn't...
