Robert J. (Bob) Blaskiewicz operates The Other Burzynski Patient Group (TOBPG)

The problem is:

1. Bob Blaskiewicz Faux Skeptic Exposed! does NOT want to debate or want people to consider the failures of Science Based Medicine compared to Burzynski, because he has an agenda

2. @rjblaskiewicz is a known LIAR

Making unsubstantiated claims like this:

@dixon_frederick @AlaaTheWarrior Actually, he CLAIMS a success rate, but is unable to publish. Suspicious: clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?te…

======================================
You probably will NOT see that any of them have posted any comments to my blog anytime in the near future, because as has been stated before on #Forbes, The Skeptics™ want to control any debate, which is why the above type individuals block individuals like me from posting to their blogs, because they want their questions answered, but they do NOT want that type of dialogue to be the proverbial ““Two-Way Street”

======================================
For instance, they want to be able to post their Soviet-styled Dezinformatsiya without being held accountable for the veracity of the information on their blogs, Twitter, and elsewhere on Al Gore’s Internet

The difference between The Skeptics™ and I is that I actually believe in and practice “Freedom of Speech” while they block people’s comments because they do NOT have “The Right Stuff” and they can’t handle the truth, thank you, Jack Nicholson

If Dr. David H. “Orac” Gorski had to explain WHY all 33 of the patients in this phase II (2) clinical trial DIED, I am sure “Orac” is god could come up with plenty of excuses why traditional medicine did NOT save them, but if those patients had been Burzynski patients and lived, then Gorski would try to make a lot of excuses why the “standard of care” that did NOT save them, saved them if they were under Burzynski’s care

prognosis for children with BRAIN STEM GLIOMA remains grim

The Pediatric Oncology Group (POG, now part of Children’s Oncology Group) conducted study using agents in combination with standard external beam radiation for children with newly diagnosed BRAIN STEM GLIOMA
——————————————————————
Children eligible
3-21 years of age, had MRI-evidence of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, and had neurologic deficits of <6 months duration
——————————————————————
30 eligible and evaluable for Survival / toxicity
——————————————————————
8 years (3-14 years) – Median age
——————————————————————
7 / 23% – Partial Response following radiation
18 / 60% – Stable Disease
2 / 7% – Progressive Disease
3 / 10% – Response Not measured
——————————————————————
30 / 100% CHILDREN DIED
——————————————————————
Overall Survival 1 year
27 +/- 7%
2 years, 3 +/- 2%
——————————————————————
9 months (3-36 months) – Median Survival
——————————————————————
addition of vincristine and oral VP-16 to standard external beam radiation causes moderate toxicity and DOESN’T IMPROVE SURVIVAL OF CHILDREN WITH DIFFUSE INTRINSIC BRAIN STEM GLIOMA
