Dr Stanislaw Burzynski is the first and only scientist in United States history to enter the federal drug approval process for a proprietary cancer therapy without any support from the American government, the pharmaceutical industry, or any other entity within the cancer establishment….and they don’t like that.
Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D. is an internationally recognized physician and biochemist/ researcher who pioneered the development and use of biologically active peptides in diagnosing, preventing and treating cancer. In 1967, at the young age of 24, he first identified these naturally occurring peptides in the human body but found they were lacking in people with cancer. He developed antineoplastons, which can turn on the cancer fighting mechanisms within the body. His treatments have no ill side effects and have a 30-50% survival rate for children and adults that have been diagnosed with terminal brain cancers after standard conventional treatments have failed to offer them a cure. Burzynski has completed phase 1 and 11 of his antineoplaston trials and is nearing the start of phase 3 FDA clinical trials for pediatric brain tumors.
A quote by Burzynski regarding his antineoplaston treatment. “Some cancers have a higher response rate than others, but overall, our success rate is any where from 40-60%. These statistics represent, in their majority, people who were initially given a terminal diagnosis and who came to us after conventional treatments failed them. For certain types of brain tumors, we have an over 60 percent partial or complete response rate. For malignant melanoma, we have an objective response rate of around 40%.” (note-currently there is no effective standard treatment for malignant melanoma).
Why Burzynski has had to charge his patients to be in the trials– Many people have questioned why Dr Burzynski has had to charge patients to be in his clinical trials, but they need to understand that cash-rich drug companies can afford to fund their own clinical trials and they often qualify for research grants through the National Cancer Institute or the American Cancer Society, which helps test and move their products through an approval pipeline which has a 300 million dollar price tag. In contrast, Dr Burzynski has been persecuted relentlessly, and charged repeatedly by the very forces that should be happy that a non-toxic, gene-targeted therapy for cancer is in the making.
The Fraudulent drug trials while attempting to steal his drug patents- because of enduring years of unnecessary persecution, he has been forced to spend millions of dollars of his own money to defend his right to treat cancer patients and has not received any support from NCI or ACS or any other organization. The only pseudo-support that he did receive was when the National Cancer Institute offered to put antineoplastons through fraudulent trials which were put on only to discredit him. To their shame, a dozen people died while the National Cancer Institute played politics and toyed with their lives. You can watch in Burzynksi documentary posted below how the FDA was attempting to steal this patents while at the same time outwardly rejecting his therapy and trying to prosecute him for treating patients, yet the patent applications clearly state that antineoplaston treatments are effective for many forms of cancer including breast, prostate, liver, colon, lung, melanoma and others.
Case Dismissed- on November 19, 2012, judges of the Texas State Office of Administrative Hearings dismissed the Texas Medical Board’s pending case against Dr. Burzynski for prescribing and treating his patients with off label gene-targeted protocols. But that court victory has not allowed him to practice his form of medicine on patients with cancer.
More restrictions by the FDA- The FDA had a longstanding restriction in place demanding that children diagnosed with brain cancers must first go through conventional treatments and fail before they could qualify to be entered into the antineoplaston pediatric brain cancer trials. Furthermore, since the court victory mentioned above, they have also placed further restrictions on Dr Burzynski’s ability to accept and treat all new patients, no matter what their age or diagnosis with antineoplaston therapy.
Insurance reimbursements- If you are allowed to be seen at the clinic, a few insurance companies will pay for some of the treatments offered at the center, but since antineoplastons are not approved by the FDA, all expenses related to them will be out of pocket. As it now stands no patients may receive antineoplaston treatments due to current FDA restrictions. Patients may consult with Dr Burzynski for a complete gene screening to identify the oncogenes responsible for the growth of cancerous cells (these tests are not available at standard care cancer clinics in the US), for which he provides patients with a targeted treatment plan in order to address the specific cancer cells that are carrying the identified abnormal genes. The main goal with gene screening is to personalize the treatments to match the patient’s needs in order to achieve maximum effectiveness with minimum side effects. But since Dr Burzynski often prescribes off label treatments, this may also complicate matters with insurance company reimbursements.
Finding Antineoplastons treatments outside of the US- antineoplaston therapy in now available in Japan. Any patient with any type of cancer can go to Japan to get Antineoplaston therapy legally, and can completely avoid FDA regulations altogether. Regardless of cancer type, and regardless of “previous therapy”. The only problem is that it is very expensive because the only way they can legally give ANP infusions is in a hospital setting (vs doing them at home as done through Burzynski Clinic). But if someone can afford it, the option is always available: http://www.cancerclinic.jp/en/cancer_treatments/antineoplaston.html

Dr Burzynski on Dateline
Trailer for the second Burzyski documentary
A father shares his story of attempting to obtain Burzynski’s therapy for his daughter’s brain cancer and being denied by the FDA. She died because of this.
Dustin Kunnari Beats brain cancer with Burzynski Antineoplastons
Schad Kolar shares his diagnosed with Gardner’s Syndrome, a genetic disease that causes polyps to grow unchecked on internal organs. Conventional treatments failed to treat him, but Dr Burzynski offered him a complete cure.
News report on Sophia who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor as a baby. Hospice was called as there was nothing more that could be done until Dr Burzynski’s Antineoplaston therapy was used. She is now 16!
Sophia Gettino is a former patient of the Burzynski Clinic who was told by conventional doctors that she wouldn’t live to see her second birthday because her brain was riddled with tumors. In January 2012, ABC News Channel 9 in New York had her featured as she celebrated her sweet 16th birthday still cancer free.
Cut Poison Burn, available is an eye opening and heartbreaking documentary that puts the business of cancer treatment under the microscope. Follow the frustrating journey of Thomas Navarro as his parents try to navigate the “cancer industrial complex” to get Dr Burzynski’s non-toxic antineoplaston treatment for their son’s brain cancer. This is a compelling critique of the influence of medical monopolies, the power of pharmaceutical companies and the dysfunctional government agencies that put big business first.
