Burzynski violates federal law with misleading claims about his research

More legal troubles for Burzynski. You can’t see me, but I’m smiling. Dr. B, you are NOT above the law!

Texas charges controversial doctor with false ads.

Texas medical authorities have filed new charges against a controversial Houston doctor who was the subject of a USA TODAY investigation.

In a complaint filed Dec. 11, the Texas Medical Board said Stanislaw Burzynski marketed his experimental cancer therapies online and in news releases in a way that is “false, misleading and violated federal law.”

In a statement Wednesday, the Burzynski Clinic dismissed the charges as “frivolous,” arguing that he has a constitutional right to make truthful statements about his research.

In December, the FDA issued a strongly worded warning letter to Burzynski, saying he inflated the success rates of his clinical trials, neglected to report serious side effects and failed to prevent patients from repeatedly overdosing. According to the FDA, Burzynski’s failure to keep accurate patient records “raises concerns about subject safety and data integrity, as well as concerns about the adequacy of safeguards in place at your site to protect patients.”

If Burzynski fails to adequately address the FDA’s most recent concerns, the agency could terminate his clinical trial, disqualify Burzynski from conducting FDA research, issue a civil fine or pursue criminal charges, according to FDA regulations.

We can only hope. Who does he think he is? There is no EVIDENCE that his research has shown ANYTHING. Any doctor who shows such disrespect for science, federal law and his own patients is of dubious ethical judgement, don’t you think? Dr. B. is on the defensive after the citations against him by the FDA. Honestly, does he think they want to make trouble and a lawsuit for themselves? No, but they have a code of regulations to uphold. You, Stan, think you are above the law? That’s a sign of quackery, for sure.

It’s 2014, and Stanislaw Burzynski has begun his counteroffensive – Respectful Insolence.

    I seriously hope they get him on criminal charges. I’ve been following the whole thing on SBM for a while and it’s time this nutter is prevented from practicing.

    Assuming the FDA does any of those things I’m sure he will just up sticks to Mexico or somewhere and open up again.

    And his supporters will fold this event into their increasingly elaborate conspiracy theory that the FDA or “big pharma” is trying to suppress his miracle cure. What won’t occur to them at any point is that if he actually offered evidence that his treatment actually worked in the last 30 years he would probably have streets named after him by now.

    Why does it take an “investigation” in USA, a newspaper of little merit, to bring this quack into the open? Where was the FDA before someone who works there read the free newspaper in front of their hotel room door?

    He might have to sell the 6 millions $ house to pay the fine, That one the worst fraud ever, sucking money out of dying people without any damn regret about it. Such a narcissistic Douche. Funny how int the people defending him use argument like “Big pharma only wants money”, but pay thousand and thousand for that man quack. That man abuse desperate people. I hope he also go to jail ( and yes the people working for him too, i cannot believe they all “don’t know” )
