You said it right: It is controversial! If you research the biography of
the good Dr. B., you'll see a brilliant MD and researchers with
impeccable credentials who - at cost to his prestige and life-style -
elected to give up his position and pursue his revolutionary ideas.
Not being able to raise anyone's interest, he started his own clinic and
had his own 'unofficial trials'. In short, I have heard many attack him
for using drugs not sanctioned by FDA; I have not ever heard anyone attack
his credentials or his impressive case history...
This doesn't say much for his treatment - It is controverisal and
expensive (although still less than traditional medicine). Alas, he is
legally barred from accepting any new patients. So, the point may be
By the way, University of VA and NCI are conducting early trials on two
conponents of Dr. B.'s Neoplastons: early findings are very promising...
Good luck and best wishes.
