Looks like a, are you ready for it, Wikipedia article was enough to prove it to Yellow spot in the snow.
Ya I read it on Wikipedia and that's all the proof I need.....
If it was really that great then there would be doctors able to independently verify it. Contrary to what you might believe the vast majority of doctors want their patients to get better and don't like drug companies any more than the rest of us.
In 2009, the FDA issued a warning letter to the Burzynski Research Institute, stating that an investigation had determined the Burzynski Institutional Review Board (IRB) "did not adhere to the applicable statutory requirements and FDA regulations governing the protection of human subjects." It identified a number of specific findings, among them that the IRB had approved research without ensuring risk to patients was minimized, had failed to prepare required written procedures or retain required documentation, and had failed to conduct required continuing reviews for studies, among others. The Institute was given fifteen days to identify the steps it would take to prevent future violations.
In December 2010, the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners filed a multi-count complaint against Burzynski for failure to meet state medical standards.
In January 2012, Lola Quinlan, an elderly, stage IV cancer patient, sued Dr Burzynski for using false and misleading tactics to swindle her out of $100,000. She also sued his companies, The Burzynski Clinic, the Burzynski Research Institute and Southern Family Pharmacy, in Harris County Court. She sued for negligence, negligent misrepresentation, fraud, deceptive trade and conspiracy.
The FDA has a lot of issues but the only scam here is this "doctor" stealing from seriously ill and desperate people.
By the way I left the notations in on purpose so you could read the original cited sources since you snub your nose at Wikipedia.
