I had heard it was made from a specific kind of cicada's discarded skins, so maybe it's left over after the caterpillar turns into an adult cicada. Anyway I don't think it's the same species of cordyceps that is found (or used to be, anyway) in health-food supplements. Anyway they have distilled it and it's taken by intravenous infusion. No reports I've heard of any associated deaths. In the FTY720 form at one time you could buy the research version of it for a few $K per ounce, but I don't know how many doses that would be.
I knew more about it than my neuro, and I was still RR, when he decided I was SP, and therefore cancelled my participation in the trial. I am definitely SP now. Don't know whether to hate him or thank him, since I could also be dead.
