Editors Note
Note Director Eric Merola explores the remarkable story of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, a Ph.D. microchemist and medical doctor who took on the Food and Drug Administration in a landmark court case, and won. Back in the 1970s, Dr. Burzynski discovered antineoplastons, a gene-targeted cancer treatment that has helped millions afflicted with the most deadly forms of the disease. Previously able to develop and administer antineoplaston treatment in Texas -- where physicians were not required to follow Federal law -- Dr. Burzynski successfully treated various so-called "incurable" cancers before the Food and Drug Administration made it their personal mission to shut him down. In addition to covering the ten years of trials that the Food and Drug Administration forced Dr. Burzynski to endure, Merola also explores the reasons why the U.S. government was so intent on halting a cancer treatment that showed real results. Could the fact that pharmaceutical giants won't see a penny of profit from antineoplastons have anything to do with the fact that the powers that be seem intent on keeping this life-saving treatment from the public?

Variety "[T]he public nature of Burzynski's predicament, the avowed sympathy of the media and several documented cures in 'hopeless' cases grant a degree of legitimacy to the good doctor's ongoing struggles....BURZYNSKI ultimately proves convincing." 06/03/2010
