Download the FREE ebook "Beating Myeloma: If I Knew Then What I Know Now" and arm yourself with the information about autologous stem cell transplantation, treatment options, and side effects that I wish I had known about when I began treatment.
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, The Burzynski Research Institute (BRI) and antineoplaston therapy (ANP) are some of the most controversial names, places and cancer therapies in the U.S. today. I should know. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2/94, underwent induction therapy, an ASCT, multiple radiation sessions and finally, there is nothing more we can do for you.
I then underwent ANP from 11/97-4/99. My multiple myeloma bone lesions shrank and disappeared over the course of those 17 months.
I achieved complete remission by 4/99 and have remained multiple myeloma-ever since. By the writing of this post, 7/30/19, I have been MM-free for more than 20 years. Pretty good results for an “incurable cancer” wouldn’t you say Peter Lipson?
It almost impossible to document positive outcomes from non-FDA approved cancer therapies. Nay-sayers, such as Peter Lipson and his article below, can more easily cast doubt on an “out-of-the-box” therapy by jumping on the bandwagon with the many other “experts” who slam the BRI and ANP.
Cancer patients contact me frequently asking about ANP in general and ANP for MM specifically. If conventional oncology offered MM patients ANY hope do you think these patients would be so desperate?!
Multiple Myeloma patients have a 3-5 year average life expectancy according to the ACS. If they follow only conventional oncology. If your oncologist gave you this kind of prognosis wouldn’t you want to do more?
I am both a long-term MM survivor and MM cancer coach. Scroll down the page, post a question or a comment and I will reply to you ASAP.
“The centerpiece of Burzynski’s treatment is a drug he refers to as “antineoplastons”. They have never been approved by the FDA for the treatment of cancer, and the only way Burzynski has been able to sell and administer them is under the auspices of “clinical trials.”
Despite decades of giving antineoplastons, Burzynski has failed to publish any data (that is, human clinical trials data…
(One could also argue that the slogan displayed on his website (“First, DoNoHarm!”) is also a bit mendacious given the facts discussed below.)
Earlier this year, the FDA finally visited the Burzynski Clinic to take a peek around. Through FOIA request, a number of bloggers have been looking over the documents for a few months, but now they have been released publicly.
According to the Declaration of Helsinki,
It is the duty of physicians who are involved in medical research to protect the life, health, dignity, integrity, right to self-determination, privacy, and confidentiality of personal information of research subjects. The responsibility for the protection of research subjects must always rest with the physician or other health care professionals and never with the research subjects, even though they have given consent.
What this says about Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski I’ll leave to the reader’s interpretation.”
