1/24/2013 – C0nc0rdance posted a video on YouTube

The Burzynski Clinic

“Feel free to pass this on to anyone considering their options in alternative cancer treatments at the Burzynski Clinic

It’s also CCMA, so feel free to mirror or repost

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

I caught an error in post-production:

The Burzynski Clinic has only started 61 clinical trials, not 62

The last came up in my query because one of the authors has the same name

Otherwise the figures are correct”

“Fact 1:

The Burzynski Clinic has attempted 61 clinical trials, but only completed 1

Check it out here:”
http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=Burzynski&Search=Search

“Fact 2:

The Burzynski Clinic charges
its patients to participate in a study of their patented medication that exposes them to risk”

http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2010/05/05/harnessing-peoples-good-to-pay-for-woo

“Fact 3:

The Burzynski Clinic makes heavy use of marketing techniques not normally associated with clinical practices and not in the best spirit of research medicine

For example, you can see here that they are abusing libel laws to silence critics”

Fact 3: it is referred to as “Beating a Dead Horse” when a point that is moot, is be labored by critics

13 thoughts on “My review of C0nc0rdance

  1. This is a useless response. You address “fact 1″ by pointing to a website which simply states that the status of most of the trials is unknown. That is a useless designation that does nothing to disprove the fact that of the 61 studies you have conducted, only 1 has ever reported results. Do you deny this fact? Do you have an explanation for it?

    You try to deflect the question by linking to another website, reporting the same information (cancer.gov). But as it says on that very site:

    Information about this trial is from the ClinicalTrials.gov database. The versions designated for health professionals and patients contain the same text. Minor changes may be made to the ClinicalTrials.gov record to standardize the names of study sponsors, sites, and contacts. Cancer.gov only lists sites that are recruiting patients for active trials, whereas ClinicalTrials.gov lists all sites for all trials.

    The only advantage to going to the cancer.gov site you recommend over the clinicaltrials.gov site is that the former doesn’t list completed trials.

    Then you say that not all studies have been registered. That doesn’t help your case. If you have concluded trials and not registered them, please show us where we can access their peer-reviewed results.

    You justify your outrageously high costs (typically many tens of thousands of dollars) to participate in clinical trials by pointing out that some other research institutes receive money from federal and private grants, tax exemption, and private donations. Again, this does not help your case. Clearly, such a source of funding is far preferable to the way Burzynski trials are funded, by the participants. Additionally, your inability to get grants for an allegedly life-saving cancer cure is indicative of flawed methodology or just a lack of efficacy.

    Furthermore, most drug trials are largely funded by the companies intended to sell the drugs. If you intend to profit off an approved drug, you should be willing to make an investment or get other investors for real science. But instead you are profiting off the trials themselves, which have been recruiting endlessly and never report results. It shouldn’t even be legal.

    Your evidence of a scientific conspiracy against your work is not evidence at all. It consists of a letter written by Burzynski and a disorganized list of links showing various NCI agreements spanning more than three decades. Your definitions of “advanced cancer” were not in accordance with standard definitions, and when the NCI tried to correct this, you painted it as persecution. You obliquely reference tumors shrinking by more than 50%, but show no evidence that any performed better than control. And you make wild claims about what the NCI’s (accurate) report on your seven best cases is “calculated to make the reader think,” rather than respond to the actual facts it determined.

    But what disgusts me the most is your response to Fact 3. You do not deny that your clinic attempted to bully numerous critics into silence by abusing libel laws. To my knowledge, you have never recognized or apologized for this reprehensible and repeat activity which is antithetical to the scientific method. You even attempted to silence C0nc0rdnace when he made this video, filing a DMCA complaint on illegitimate grounds (and potentially committing a felony in the process), removing his video, and quibbling over a single low-res image that qualifies as fair use. Will you make no attempt to justify or apologize for this behavior, or will you just sweep it under the rug?

    • Michael has replied to your comment on Burzynski, skepticism, false DMCAs and the Streisand effect – mirrored for C0nc0rdance

      I made a nice reply to your “review”.

      I’m sure it will be approved soon, right?

      It sure will, because unlike Dr. Peter A. Lipson and / or his Censor(s), Dr. David A. Gorski, Adam Jacobs, Kier Liddle, _Josephine Jones, etc., I do NOT censor, because I actually believe in “Free Speech”

      “That is a useless designation that does nothing to disprove the fact that of the 61 studies you have conducted, only 1 has ever reported results”

      “I” have NOT conducted ANY studies because “I” am NOT Burzynski; a fact you would known if you had “researched” it

      Ever heard the saying:

      “When you ASSume, you make an ASS out of you and me?

      “Do you deny this fact?”

      Yes, do you deny this fact?

      “Do you have an explanation for it?”

      An explanation for what?

      The above information I provided previously is still correct:

      WHATEVER !!

      And you are a “researcher” ?

      WOT ?

      I refer you to the statement I made in my “review” in re me being “Burzynski” or “Merola:”

      Fact 3: it is referred to as “Beating a Dead Horse” when a point that is moot, is be labored by critics

      • The “FACT” one should know is that clinicaltrials . gov does NOT contain the same data as the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) cancer . gov web-site:

        And yet the site itself claims the information is the same. The difference, as I stated, is that the NCI site only lists open trials.

        You have not addressed my question. You say you dispute that only one study out of the 61 has reported results. You seem to agree that the 61 total is correct, so it seems you are claiming that more than one has reported results. In fact, I was giving you the benefit of the doubt here. Upon closer inspection, none of the 61 trials have been published; however, one was concluded. Many more are still active or have been withdrawn. This is a pitiful number.

        Please do not repeat those same statistics again. Simply conducting a study and labeling it as perpetually “active” (but closed) is not a result. Please provide a source showing any published studies.

        “I” have NOT conducted ANY studies because “I” am NOT Burzynski; a fact you would known if you had “researched” it

        As far as I can tell, I have no way of knowing this. You don’t sign your name anywhere, blog under a pseudonym, and have a blank “About” page. Since the blog’s name is “stanislawrajmundburzynski,” I’m sure you will forgive my confusion.

        I wouldn’t think this was a big deal, except you seem to use my incorrect pronoun as an excuse to disregard large portions of my text. I’m sorry I confused you with someone else, but that has no bearing on the truth of my arguments. And to be clear, I did not think you were Dr. Burzynski himself. When I referred to “you,” I mean “you” in the general sense of your company. If you are not affiliated, then again, that’s just a mistake.

        This link reflects:

        11/25/1997 – Filing Date: FORM 10-SB

        11/25/1997 – Company sponsoring 72 Phase II clinical trials conducted pursuant to INDs filed with FDA which are currently ongoing

        And it lists the 72 clinical trials

        Those are not results. Those are ongoing studies. I am asking for results of concluded studies. I don’t know why these are difficult to procure.

        As I understand it, Dr. Burzynski has been performing trials for nearly forty years, and has never published results demonstrating the efficacy of his treatment in a peer-reviewed journal. If I am mistaken, please direct me to the publication. Please stop listing registration for studies as if that were a result.

        What evidence do you have that Burzynski has or has NOT attempted to:

        “receive money from federal and private grants, tax exemption, and private donations.”?

        I do not suggest that he has not applied for grants, and I am sure he has accepted donations. However, it appears he has not received grant money. As I said, being unable to procure grants is evidence of an ineffective or unproven treatment, not evidence of persecution. Furthermore, he cannot have tax-exempt status, because his clinics turn a profit.

        What evidence do you have that Burzynski has or has NOT attempted

        “to make an investment or get other investors for real science.?”

        Have you read his Securities and Exchange Commission filings like I have?

        Again, it feels like you are deliberately misreading me. I never suggested he had not made these attempts. I do not care what he has “tried” to do. The fact is he has not done so. As I have said, passing the cost on to his patients is not an acceptable alternative. It seems he has turned to both private and public sources and not received support for his unproven treatments, so instead he draws the support from the most vulnerable.

        FALSE: Burzynski does NOT charge for antineoplastons

        According to the ACS, “Antineoplastons are given by mouth, injection into a vein or muscle, and by other routes. The treatment usually lasts from 8 – 12 months. Treatment can cost from $7,000 to $9,500 per month or more . . . .”

        Here is a reprint of parts of a page curiously removed from the internet, telling the story of one patient whose Burzynski trial drugs cost in excess of $4k a month each.

        Either way, the point is moot. In order to enroll in these studies, you must receive your cancer treatment from the Burzynski Clinic, and that clinic charges around $7500 a month for chemotherapy for a typical patient.

        I would like to note that you failed to respond in any substantive fashion to the claims that:
        1. There are no peer-reviewed results of Dr. Burzynski’s many trials.
        2. At least 61 trials have been registered.
        3. The evidence you presented for a conspiracy against Dr. Burzynski’s work is nothing of the sort.
        3a. Specifically that Dr. Burzynski used inappropriate definitions for “advanced cancer.”
        4. Eric Merola has on a number of occasions abused libel and copyright law to suppress criticism online.

      • “The U.S. v. Article’~ court stated that the FDA’s responsibility was to protect the ultimate consumer, which included protection of “the ignorant, the unthinking and the credulous.”‘

        Right now I am one of the “credulous”

        Please let me know if you fit into one of the above categories

        So, “Orac” requested that I comment on the video:

        #6 – Didymus Judas Thomas – At the Tu-Quack Center IMAX 3-D Video Viewing Velodrome – January 28, 2013

        …and then (ahem) “C0nc0rdance” commented:

        #49 – c0nc0rdance – January 29, 2013
        @Orac
        “Many, many thanks for sharing my video.)…”
        http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2013/01/28/an-excellent-explanation-of-how-dubious-stanislaw-burzynskis-activities-are/
        “And yet the site itself claims the information is the same.”

        “The difference, as I stated, is that the NCI site only lists open trials.”

        And this is why I am “credulous”

        Would you like the opportunity to again read my previous reply to you and select the 2nd link I provided?

        Because this type of situation sort of reminds me of “Orac,” Guy Chapman, Boris Ogon, Wikipedia, etc., in that they use this tactic of posting a lot, instead of dealing with one issue at a time

        They should really learn to deal with one issue at a time instead of trying the “scattergun” approach, unless a consensus is made by all parties to “agree to disagree”

        “…the NCI site only lists open trials.”

        Did you select the 2nd link I provided and view the trials which were NOT open?

  2. What is your point? I am quoting the website directly. If you think their words are in error, take it up with them.

    They say they only list sites that are actively recruiting. The Burzynski Clinic is actively recruiting, so maybe they include all their trials, including the ones that have now closed. Or maybe they include all active trials (whether or not they are still recruiting), and just not those that have been concluded or withdrawn.

    Either way, there is nothing to be gained by going to cancer.gov over clinicialtrials.gov.

    And either way, this is a microscopic issue, irrelevant to the main point of your blog or C0nc0rdance’s video. Why do you keep distracting from the main points, like those I listed at the bottom of my post?

        Are you going to address the questions, or just pretend they don’t exist?

      • Michael on April 29, 2013 at 2:07 pm “I have followed all the links you have provided.” “Are you going to address the questions, or just pretend they don’t exist?” Michael, now that I have dealt with the issue of Forbes censoring (deleting) comments, and the BIAS of their article, and “Orac” and “The Skeptic” “Oracolytes,” I now have time to address your comments, again “Michael on April 28, 2013 at 7:54 pm” “What is your point?” My point is that I covered this in detail in my original review article: My review of C0nc0rdance: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/03/23/my-review-of-c0nc0rdance “I am quoting the website directly.” And “I am quoting the website directly:” On clinicaltrials . gov, if you select one of the “Unknowns,” it displays: “Verified ____, ____ by National Cancer Institute (NCI)” “Information provided by: National Cancer Institute (NCI)” “Further study details as provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI):” “If you think their words are in error, take it up with them.” And my reply is: “If you think their words are in error, take it up with them.” “They say they only list sites that are actively recruiting.” And you said: “Michael on April 29, 2013 at 2:07 pm” “I have followed all the links you have provided.” So, I take it that you found out that the info. I provided is correct “The Burzynski Clinic is actively recruiting, so maybe they include all their trials, including the ones that have now closed.” “Or maybe they include all active trials (whether or not they are still recruiting), and just not those that have been concluded or withdrawn.” “Either way, there is nothing to be gained by going to cancer.gov over clinicialtrials.gov.” “And either way, this is a microscopic issue, irrelevant to the main point of your blog or C0nc0rdance’s video.” “Why do you keep distracting from the main points, like those I listed at the bottom of my post?” It’s not distraction when you kept distracting from the main points, like those I listed throughout my post Michael on April 28, 2013 at 2:10 am The “FACT” one should know is that clinicaltrials . gov does NOT contain the same data as the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) cancer . gov web-site: “And yet the site itself claims the information is the same.” “The difference, as I stated, is that the NCI site only lists open trials.” “You have not addressed my question.” “You say you dispute that only one study out of the 61 has reported results.” Is THAT really what I said I “dispute”? “You seem to agree that the 61 total is correct, so it seems you are claiming that more than one has reported results.” Is THAT really what I am “claiming”? “In fact, I was giving you the benefit of the doubt here.” “Upon closer inspection, none of the 61 trials have been published; however, one was concluded.” Amazingly, as many times as “Orac” and “The Skeptic” “Oracolytes” mention this “one” concluded (or “completed”) trial, they seem to be unable to cite the date it was “completed” From the previous links I provided, this one lists the “one” completed trial: The below 2nd link: 25 Closed-1st screen / 15 Closed-1 Completed-2nd screen: http://cancer.gov/clinicaltrials/search/results?protocolsearchid=11476036 Antineoplaston Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage IV Melanoma Phase: Phase II Type: Treatment Status: Completed Age: 18 and over Sponsor: Other Protocol IDs: CDR0000066552, BC-ME-2, NCT00003509 From the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings we can find this “one” completed trial: Burzynski Clinical Trials (The SEC filings): https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/burzynski-clinical-trials-2/ Certain prospective protocols which have reached a Milestone as of May 1, 2012 Antineoplaston Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage IV Melanomau Melanoma (Skin) Drug: antineoplaston A10 Drug: antineoplaston AS2-1 Phase 2 Phase II COMPLETED Age 18 and over Protocol IDs CDR0000066552 BC-ME-2, NCT00003509 http://cancer.gov/clinicaltrials/BC-ME-2 COMPLETED Antineoplaston Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage IV Melanoma Basic Trial Information Trial Description Summary Further Trial Information Eligibility Criteria Trial Contact Information Basic Trial Information Phase Phase II Type Treatment Status Completed Age 18 and over Sponsor Other Protocol IDs CDR0000066552 BC-ME-2, NCT00003509 Trial Description Summary RATIONALE: Antineoplastons are naturally-occurring substances that may also be made in the laboratory Antineoplastons may inhibit the growth of cancer cells PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well antineoplaston therapy works in treating patients with progressive or recurrent stage IV melanoma Further Study Information OBJECTIVES: Determine the safety and possible effectiveness of antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 in patients with progressive or recurrent stage IV melanoma Describe response, tolerance to, and side effects of this regimen in these patients OUTLINE: This is an open label study Patients receive gradually escalating doses of antineoplaston A10 and antineoplaston AS2-1 by intravenous injection 6 times daily until the maximum tolerated dose is reached Treatment continues for at least 3 months in the absence of toxicity and disease progression Patients achieving complete response (CR) continue treatment for an additional 8 months after reaching CR Tumors are measured every 2 months for the first year and every 3 months for the second year PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study Eligibility Criteria DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: Histologically confirmed stage IV melanoma that is recurrent or progressing and unlikely to respond to existing therapy Measurable disease by MRI or CT scan Tumor must be at least 2 cm in the lymph nodes in the head, neck, axillary, inguinal, or femoral areas and at least 0.5 cm in other locations PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: 18 and over Performance status: Karnofsky 60-100% Life expectancy: At least 2 months Hematopoietic: WBC at least 2,000/mm3 Platelet count at least 50,000/mm3 Hepatic: Bilirubin no greater than 2.5 mg/dL SGOT and SGPT no greater than 5 times the upper limit of normal No hepatic insufficiency Renal: Creatinine no greater than 2.5 mg/dL No renal insufficiency No renal conditions that contraindicate high dosages of sodium Cardiovascular: No chronic heart failure No uncontrolled hypertension No history of congestive heart failure No other cardiovascular conditions that contraindicate high dosages of sodium Pulmonary: No severe lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Other: Not pregnant or nursing Fertile patients must use effective contraception during and for 4 weeks after study No serious medical or psychiatric disorders No active infection PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Biologic therapy: At least 4 weeks since prior immunotherapy and recovered No concurrent immunomodulating agents Chemotherapy: At least 4 weeks since prior chemotherapy (6 weeks for nitrosoureas) and recovered No concurrent antineoplastic agents Endocrine therapy: Concurrent corticosteroids allowed Radiotherapy: At least 8 weeks since prior radiotherapy and recovered (patients with multiple tumors who have received radiotherapy to some, but not all, tumors may be admitted earlier than 8 weeks) Surgery: Recovered from prior surgery Other: Prior cytodifferentiating agent allowed No prior antineoplaston therapy Trial Contact Information Trial Lead Organizations/Sponsors Burzynski Clinic Stanislaw R.

Well, at least you seem to differ from “The Skeptics” who keep insisting that the clinical trials turn a profit, as opposed to the non- clinical trial operations: Burzynski (The SEC filings): https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/16/burzynski-the-sec-filings What evidence do you have that Burzynski has or has NOT attempted “to make an investment or get other investors for real science.?” Have you read his Securities and Exchange Commission filings like I have? “Again, it feels like you are deliberately misreading me.” Nope, I read this: “If you intend to profit off an approved drug, you should be willing to make an investment or get other investors for real science.” If you review the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings you will find BRZY:OTC US stock for Burzynski “I never suggested he had not made these attempts.” “I do not care what he has “tried” to do.” “The fact is he has not done so.” So, you are wrong because BRZY exists “As I have said, passing the cost on to his patients is not an acceptable alternative.” THAT is your opinion, and you are entitled to your opinion, but that’s all it is “It seems he has turned to both private and public sources and not received support for his unproven treatments, so instead he draws the support from the most vulnerable.” Maybe you and “The Skeptics” can help raise the necessary funding FALSE: Burzynski does NOT charge for antineoplastons “According to the ACS, “Antineoplastons are given by mouth, injection into a vein or muscle, and by other routes.” “The treatment usually lasts from 8 – 12 months.” “Treatment can cost from $7,000 to $9,500 per month or more . . . .” “Here is a reprint of parts of a page curiously removed from the internet, telling the story of one patient whose Burzynski trial drugs cost in excess of $4k a month each.” “Either way, the point is moot.” “In order to enroll in these studies, you must receive your cancer treatment from the Burzynski Clinic, and that clinic charges around $7500 a month for chemotherapy for a typical patient.” And for comparison purposes, you can refer to THIS: Burzynski: Costs of Cancer treatments: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/burzynski-costs-of-cancer-treatments “I would like to note that you failed to respond in any substantive fashion to the claims that:” “1. There are no peer-reviewed results of Dr. Burzynski’s many trials.” Michael, what relevance does your question have after reading THESE? FAQ: Clinical Trial Results: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/26/burzynski-faq-clinical-trial-results/ What happens when a clinical trial is over?: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/burzynski-what-happens-when-a-clinical-trial-is-over Declaration of Helsinki: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/burzynski-declaration-of-helsinki “2. At least 61 trials have been registered.” So ? “3. The evidence you presented for a conspiracy against Dr. Burzynski’s work is nothing of the sort.” I would like to note that you failed to respond in any substantive fashion to the claims that I provided, as evidenced by your response: “Your evidence of a scientific conspiracy against your work is not evidence at all.” “It consists of a letter written by Burzynski and a disorganized list of links showing various NCI agreements spanning more than three decades.” (c0nc0rdance video) 6:41-Conspiracy POSITIVE ? Let’s review the links I provided, shall we? FACT: See these 2 links: http://burzynskimovie.com/images/stories/transcript/Documents/BurzynskiTriesToExposeNCI.pdf http://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wiki-site.com/index.php/Main_Page 10/2/1991 11/2/1993 3/1/1994 3/23/1994 4/19/1994 1/31/1995 4/3/1995 8/23/1995 9/19/1995 10/5/1995 10/25/1995 10/27/1995 10/2/1991-10/27/1995 is NOT “spanning more than three decades.” And now you can add to those: “The Skeptics:” Your problem is, Wikipedia IS censored: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/14/the-skeptics-your-problem-is-wikipedia-is-censored Wikipedia, what’s your motivation?: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/wikipedia-whats-your-motivation/ Forbes censors Peter Lipson “Speech is best countered by more speech” article comments: https://stanislawrajmundburzynski.wordpress.com/2013/04/23/forbes-censors-peter-lipson-speech-is-best-countered-by-more-speech-article-comments/ Dr. Peter A.

  3. I will not even attempt to read your 6000+ word rant, which is so poorly formatted that I cannot even distinguish your words from words you are quoting.

    I will however point out for the third time that just because a study is no longer actively recruiting does not mean it produced any results. You can close a trial and then open a new one at no cost. The Burzynski clinic has never published a single in vivo study supporting the effectiveness of antineoplastons to treat anything. You clearly do not have even a basic understanding of this process, and thus continue to repeat inane nonsense.

    This conversation is over. I hope when you turn twelve years old, you will understand why I am so frustrated.

    • This is the response one would expect from one of “The Skeptics”
      Your “pal” “Orac” frequently posts epistles of verbosity, and I take the time to read them
      Yet you, a Skeptic, can NOT handle the same thing in return, and seem unable to grasp the concept of why “quotation” marks are put at the beginning and end of certain sentences and words
      Once you’ve grown up and been around half a century, let me know
