Although Burzynski and his associates claim success in the use of antineoplaston combinations for the treatment of various diseases, there is no evidence of clinical efficacy of these methods. Oncologists have described these studies as flawed, with one doctor stating that they are "scientific nonsense". In particular, independent scientists have been unable to reproduce the positive results reported in Burzynski's studies.
There is no convincing evidence from any randomized controlled trial that antineoplastons are useful treatments of cancer. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved antineoplastons for the treatment of any disease. The American Cancer Society has found no evidence that antineoplastons have any beneficial effects in cancer, and it has recommended that people do not spend money on antineoplaston treatments. A 2004 medical review described this treatment as a "disproven therapy".
Even if this were true. What's the problem with giving parents the choice to let their child die on chemo or let him die under supervision of Burzynski?
At the very least, do your self a favor and watch the first 3 and a half minutes of this.
