Critiquing: Stanislaw Burzynski: On the arrogance of ignorance about cancer and targeted therapies

12/5/2012 Dr. David H. “Orac” Gorski, who claims to be a “researcher,” cooked up this gastronomically inedible MUD pie:

Stanislaw Burzynski: On the arrogance of ignorance about cancer and targeted therapies

Three myths about Stanislaw Burzynski and The Skeptics
——————————————————————
5-6/2012 – Stanislaw R. Burzynski, MD, PhD: novel cancer research and the fight to prove its worth
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22875562/
Altern Ther Health Med. 2012 May-Jun;18(3):54-61.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/22875562/
——————————————————————
Here we go again

Now here’s where we see the sheer arrogance, the sheer ignorance of the man:

Gorski quotes Dr Burzynski:

“I published the review article in a peer-reviewed journal almost 20 years ago on the principles of personalized gene-targeted therapy”

Gorski states:

“Curious as to just what the heck Burzynski was talking about here, I searched PubMed for this alleged review article”

“I couldn’t find it on PubMed”

“His only publications from the 1990s had nothing to do with cancer as a “genetic disease” or “personalized gene-targeted cancer therapy” and everything to do with antineoplastons”

“Perhaps Burzynski proposed this “revolutionary” new idea in a peer-reviewed article that’s not indexed in PubMed, but if he did I couldn’t find it using Google and Google Scholar”

“(In fact when I entered “Burznski” and “personalized gene therapy” into Google Scholar, I got the article containing the transcript of Burzynski’s interview that I’m discussing at the top of the hit list!)”

I had to choke back a rising bile in the back of my throat as I read this

I mean, seriously, such a combination of arrogance (Gorski apparently thinking that he was the kind of person who could intelligently conduct a PubMed, Google, and Google Scholar search on personalized therapy and targeting genes for cancer)

Gorski’s ignorance of the entire field of Internet searches is breathtaking!

Let’s put it this way

Gorski was in graduate school 20 years ago, and was not taught back then how to do an Internet search

Gorski fumes:

“There’s a term called “oncogene,” which describes genes that, when either mutated or too much is made, can result in cancer”

“Robert Huebner and George Todaro first coined it in 1969, and the first oncogene, src, was described in 1970, twenty years before Burzynski claims to have understood that cancer is a genetic disease”

“The first tumor suppressor gene, the retinoblastoma gene, was characterized in 1986, at least six years before Burzynski’s apparent “revelation” that cancer is a “genetic disease.””

As usual, Burzynski and Internet searching was way ahead of Gorski

One wonders if he has ever bothered to read:

To Herr Doktor:

“The next time they do one of these B2 shows, where they screen the film and take questions, why doesn’t somebody just ask for the data right then and there — How many patients over the course of the years, including the fraction who are still alive, the fraction who died, and the fraction whose survival is unknown?

They will get used to hearing that question and do their best to adapt, but just making stuff up will have consequences of its own”

Why not just ask Dolcefino ?

As degradation product of ANTINEOPLASTON A10 in vivo, phenylacetyl glutamine (PG) showed antitumor activities

According to literatures, we designed and radiosynthesized a phenylacetyl glutamine (PG) derivative, which was achieved under a mild reaction condition

Evaluations in vitro and in vivo were performed on tumor bearing mice

Excitingly, the radiochemical purity was 98%, and besides the best radiochemical yield was up to 46%

it showed satisfied stability in vitro and in vivo

the results revealed it might become a potential PET imaging agent for detecting tumors

Another EPIC Burzynski Critic FAIL

“From Mark Thorson’s link:

Li Qingchen, a doctor and member of Scientific Squirrels, a Chinese organization dedicated to the dissemination of scientific knowledge, said Thursday that the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) has been using an unapproved cancer therapy to swindle Chinese patients

[…]

The Chinese representative office of A4M claimed on its website that it could offer a “breakthrough cancer therapy” developed by Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, who asserts that cancer can be treated with ANTINEOPLASTONS, a group of amino acids and petides normally found in urine and blood

The organization also posted dozens of promotional videos and blogs on Sina Weibo, a popular Chinese microblogging site

Sounds like the international trade in snake oil has run into CITES regulations

What’s the story with AAAAM?

On first glance it’s a umbrella organisation for a heterogeneous mixture of shysters and charlatans, including Burzynski’s “Aminocare” sideline”

You mean ANTINEOPLASTONS which have the same main ingredient as CDA-2 (CDA-H or CDA-II) ?

“Phase I/II/III clinical trials of CDA-2 have been completed in China in 2003

In August 2004, the State Drug Administration (SDA) of China approved the use of CDA-2 as an anticancer drug in solid tumors.”
http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0052117

“CDA-2 had been approved as a first class new anti-cancer drug by the SFDA of mainland China in 2004 through the effort of both side of Taiwan Strait.”
