I knew I was @ the right place when community cats greeted me Marnie’s Cat Sanctuary
It was obvious to me that Marnie had been caring for cats her whole life !
We are forever grateful for Marnie & the FIP warriors who helped provide the 1st vials of FIP Magic Medicine for Milo !
FIP was a DEATH SENTENCE for CATS until recently.
We are so thankful to share Milo’s about how he fought FIP & is now doing great
FIP develops when feline enteric coronavirus (FECV), a common benign intestinal virus, mutates into the malignant FIPV virus. Discovered by a Cornell veterinarian in 1963, this mutant moves from intestinal cells to white blood cells called macrophages. Traveling through the body, it killed most cats within weeks. Kittens are particularly vulnerable, especially in shelters.
GS-441524 is a nucleoside analogue antiviral drug which was developed by Gilead Sciences. It is the main plasma metabolite of the antiviral prodrug remdesivir, and has a half-life of around 24 hours in human patients. Remdesivir & GS-441524 were both found to be effective in vitro against feline coronavirus strains responsible for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), a lethal systemic disease affecting domestic cats.
Unlike published substances or drugs that inhibit FIPV by hampering cellular processes usurped by viruses for their replication,13,14 small molecules like GS-441524 interfere directly with replicative processes encoded by the virus.
