Editorial Reviews

"Burzynski" is an internationally award-winning documentary that tells the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history. His victorious battles with the United States government were centered on Dr. Burzynski's belief in and commitment to his gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970's called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 with permission now granted to begin Phase III randomized controlled trials. When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting, life-saving medical breakthrough. Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film that chose his treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of original medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery. One form of cancer - "diffuse, intrinsic, childhood brainstem glioma" has never before been cured in any experimental clinical trial in the history of medicine. Antineoplastons hold the first cures in history - dozens of them. Burzynski takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons. However, what was revealed a few years after Dr. Burzynski won his freedom, helps to paint a more coherent picture regarding the true motivation of the U.S. government's relentless prosecution of Stanislaw Burzysnki, M.D., Ph.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars an extremely important film August 25, 2010
By Mame
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a cancer survivor, I am always interested in cancer research. Dr. Burzynski from Stafford, Texas, has made what may be the best discovery ever in cancer research. As a biochemist and physician, he found naturally-occurring peptides made by the human body which seem to inhibit cancerous cells from multiplying. Cancer patients typically lack these compounds, which he calls "antineoplastons." So he synthesized them and used them to treat about 50 types of cancer during the last 30 years, achieving much better cure rates than conventional chemo/radiation without side effects! He has had particularly good success with brain cancer patients, especially children, who were written off as having a fatal condition. Why haven't we heard about him before? Because the Texas Board of Medicine prohibits him from practicing his treatments outside of Texas.

And here is where it gets really ugly. Since the 1980's the FDA has harassed him and tried to force him out of business. He went through four grand jury investigations, and was not indicted in each case. He was even brought to trial but acquitted, supported by many grateful patients whose raised money for his defense. The FDA even raided his offices, seizing 300,000 pages of patient records. He was then allowed to have them photocopied for his practice, at his expense. Why? Cancer treatment is a billion-dollar industry and the pharmaceutical companies stand to lose big-time if a safe alternative treatment becomes the standard. The FDA was chastized by Congressional members during a hearing for persecuting Dr. Burzynski, and it finally allowed him to conduct clinically-controlled trials on his own medicine. Dr. Davorit Samid, who was previously hired by his Clinic to do research on antineoplastons, is now employed by the National Cancer Institute.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see movie July 29, 2010
I saw this movie in a small theatre. It is mainly a documentary about Dr Burzynski and his discovery of antineoplastins to cure cancers. There are actual patient stories of amazing cures of incurable cancers using his protocol. Also his fight to be able to continue using his medication protocol and his fight with big pharma and the other powers to be.

It was very enlightening to see what happens behind closed doors. There is so much corruption going on in the government that we don't know about.

I would highly recommend this movie because of the information you gain about the government and also that there are other ways to get rid of cancer without going the chemo/radiation protocol that this country insists on as the only way, and how they get big bucks following it.

Anyone who has had cancer, or knows someone that does or may have, definately needs to see this movie before submitting to the fear that they will die if they don't take the chemo/radiation route.

Whenever I tell someone that our government and health care agencies do not want a cure for cancer unless they can benefit from it financially, I'm accused of being a conspiracy theorist. Those unfamiliar with the corruption in health care just cannot believe cancer cures are being suppressed. You'll be convinced after watching this remarkably informative documentary about Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski.

Burzynski is a biochemist who discovered peptides called antineoplasts that are abundant in healthy people and completely lacking in those with cancer. He developed a protocol for extracting these peptides from the urine of healthy people and injecting them into people with cancer, which in many cases led to complete remission of the cancer--with no side effects. He later was able to synthesize it and holds a patent on his treatment.

Dr. Burzynski has been ridiculed and attacked for his discovery. The Texas Board of Medical Examiners, the FDA, the National Cancer Institute, a pharmaceutical company and a former consultant have conspired to take away his medical license, disrupt his practice, brand him as a quack, throw him in jail, and steal his patent. His office has been raided and patient files have been confiscated, disrupting Burzynski's treatment of very ill people. Millions of tax dollars have been spent by the FDA in its attempt to imprison Burzynski.

They haven't persecuted Burzynski because his treatment doesn't work or because it is harmful. They're persecuting him because it does work, and they want it. Their charge is that he shipped it across state lines to his patients, to other scientists investigating his cure, and for use in FDA clinical trials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Documentary I have seen in long time June 11, 2011
I am going to buy multiple copies of this film to share with others. I lost my Mother at 60, one of my best friends to cancer at 44 and others that took chemotherapy I watched them suffer and die from the treatment.
Everyone needs to know about the corruption in the health care and other industries for that matter. If any of you still think that the FDA and the NCI are working on your behave this film will prove to you that they are not. I have seen the FDA in action even in my local community attacking anyone that comes up with anything that helps people become healthy (I guess healthy people don't buy drugs). Don't you find it interesting that the drug companies with all that money for research have to steal Bruzynski's work. I would suggest that all the great inventions are always by some simple person just trying to make life better for themselves and others. Step outside your box, get the movie, be great, share it with others. Have a great and inspired life.
Other treatments that have also proven effective and worthy of mention Dr Max Gerson, Dr Gonzalez of NY
