Dr. Burzynski discovered peptides and amino acid derivatives in the human body that control cancer, not by destroying cancer cells but by correcting them. He named these substances antineoplastons.
Antineoplastons are nontoxic substances that have shown to be a promising therapy for difficult-to-treat brain cancers, low- and intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and many common types of solid tumors. Note: Antineoplastons have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective for the treatment of any disease or condition. However, clinical trials are under way on this treatment.
Dr. Burzynski has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as Principal Investigator in over 70 clinical trial studies. These studies encompass a wide range of cancer types in both children and adults. However, he is best known for treating brain cancer.
After 25 years of experimentation, the outlook for antineoplastons in the treatment of cancer has never been brighter. However, Dr. Burzynski advises that the treatment is still considered experimental, and that no promises of effectiveness can be made.
All residents of the United States must participate and be treated under a current FDA-approved clinical trial or Special Exception. Residents of most other countries must receive FDA permission to ship antineoplastons to that country. All patients are treated on an outpatient basis. The treatment is self-administered and normally free of serious side effects.
Currently there is legislation underway to allow for choice of therapy in treating ones cancer that resulted from Thomas Navarro being denied treatment at Burzynski's clinic. Go to our legislation page for more information on the Thomas Navarro FDA Patient Rights Act (H.R. 3677) or go to www.cancerbusters.com.
The information on this page is provided by The Cancer Cure Foundation based on information we have received from a variety of sources, including the clinic itself, feedback from people who have gone to the clinic, and in some cases from clinic tours. The listing of a doctor or clinic here does not signify an endorsement by the Cancer Cure Foundation, unless we have indicated it. We encourage you to check out each clinic by visiting the clinic if possible, talking to people who have gone to the clinic (ask the clinic for contact information of people who have gone to the clinic), and by checking with other organizations as to what they know about the clinic. There are also some forums you can join to get feedback from others. We would also be happy to tell you what we know about any of these clinics.
If you do go to any of these clinics for treatment, be sure to mention you heard about them through The Cancer Cure Foundation, and be sure to let us know about your experience, positive or negative. Any feedback you can offer may help others who are trying to decide which clinic to go to or which therapy to use.
