    I've noticed some folks seeing some improvements while on Hepapressin in the GcMAf threads. Does it work for any benefit without GCMAF? If folks was to try this, do you have to find an MD to prescribe or administer it. Thanks.

    I gather the angle here is immunomodulation somewhat like with Equilibrant, only without the antiviral aspect?

    Yes, Nexavir (kutapressin) is what I used as my first antiviral and I did notice some improvement with it. I did not use it with GcMAF. It is an immunomodulator and it also has antiviral activity.

    You have to find a doctor to prescribe it. I injected it on a rotating schedule 1-3 mL subQ.

    4 ME from the Netherlands is the same stuff but I don't think it requires a prescription...but then you have shipping, possible customs issues.

    It also does something to repair cell walls, which may prevent some pathogens from entering cells.

    Thanks Ema and Sushi for your responses on this. So it sounds like it is somewhat of an antiviral and somewhat of an immune modulator/ cellular health promotor.

    Does anyone know if the nexavir gel is as good as the injections? Does the 4ME come in oral or gel form?

    No experience with the gel. My doc only prescribes the injections. 4 ME only comes as an injection.

    Best,
