"Burzynski, the Movie" is 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 around 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 and could begin the final phase of testing-barring the ability to raise the required $150 million to fund them. 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 medical breakthrough. Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film who chose his treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery - as well as FDA-supervised clinical trial data comparing Antineoplastons to other available treatments. This documentary 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 United States government's relentless persecution of Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D.

Now, I am not saying that Mr. B 's work is the ultimate cure and to be fair nor does he. But he has had proven successes where conventional treatments have failed - clearly. And one must also question the nature of a dominant pharmaceutical monopoly that has routinely suppressed and intimidated those with genuine alternatives. To believe otherwise is just niave. That is the nature of the corporate-led world in which we live. That is the nature of any industry that makes billions and billions of profit. Mr. B may be at times flawed in his pursuit of his drug but I do not believe he is a quack and I do agree with his many successful patients that he is genuine.Read more ›
Caveat emptor - but remember this is the life of yourself or a loved one you might damage.
This film is available free and in full online with full permission of its makers, no concerns about movie piracy there. However, while film makers generally ensure they get payment for their work, it becomes understandable when viewing this: it is nothing more than a one-sided advert for the Burznski "clinic" (in reality a second floor room in a multi-occupied office block).
The financial disregard stops there however. And boy, does it stop. Normally clinical trials, which is how Burnyski recruits his patients given his claimed therapy is not licenced and has no proper data published on it, are fully paid for by the people running the trial. While some patients can get access to new drugs and other supportive care free via taking part in trials, Buryznski's patients have to pay £200,000 or something similar. Interestingly, Burzynski's published and publically available financial returns account for his trial spending in a totally different way to normal trials and allow the impression they may not be investments for future product income. This is highly unusual given the staggering claims made for the therapy in this "documentary".
Much material is online now about Burzynski's publications, scientific qualifications, claimed results, financial charges etc as the result of attacks on bloggers critical of his activities, and the "Streisand effect" that followed. The worst of these attacks, possibly, was directed against Rhys Morgan, a 17 year old blogger who magnificantly turned the tables on the attempted silencing. Take the time to read what's out there, then compare to the calims made in this "documentary" and guage its value.
Burzynski is unique in current medical science in charging for clinical trials instead of paying for them: there is no better example of "caveat emptor".

I'd like as many people as possible to buy this DVD as I am inclined to trust Burzynski. Please watch it through to the end and keep an open mind.Published on 10 Mar. 2012 by LynnetteLorraine
In 30 years Burzynski has produced NO EVIDENCE for his claims. Independent researchers FAIL TO REPLICATE his results. This is nothing more than a propaganda film.
