Default News from Dr. Burzynski

HOUSTON, Feb 05, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Medical doctors from the Burzynski Research Institute, Inc. (BRI) and the Burzynski Clinic (BC) in Houston, Texas will present case studies of patients with advanced liver and pancreatic cancers who were treated with combination gene-targeted therapies. These initial findings will be discussed at the 2009 International Congress on Anti-Cancer Treatment at the Palais des Congres in Paris, France from February 3rd-6th. The Congress is an international educational and scientific meeting that gathers together the world's foremost scientists and oncology experts to provide comprehensive updates in the management of cancer.

Barbara Burzynski, M.D., Robert Weaver, M.D., Eva Kubove, M.D., and Stanislaw R. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D., will represent BRI and BC, presenting two reports of early results of combination gene-targeted agents in a specific group of patients treated at BC.

Pancreatic cancer continues to create very difficult therapeutic problems for clinicians. Standard chemotherapy has shown to be limited in managing the disease for the longer-term. The report being presented summarizes the initial effects of combination gene-targeted therapies to treat eleven patients with advanced pancreatic cancer, including a case study on a patient in complete response seven months after the diagnosis of his disease.

Hepatocellular carcinoma is a primary liver cancer that carries nearly 100% mortality and has shown to be highly resistant to conventional therapies. The discussion undertaken at the Congress looks at preliminary findings across a group of seven patients undergoing personalized treatment of their disease. Case reports highlighted involve two patients diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma who failed standard therapy; one of them relapsing post liver transplant. Both patients have achieved complete response.

"These cases require longer follow-up and confirmation in a larger patient population. However, the early results are quite compelling when you consider the deadly outcome of these advanced liver and pancreatic cancers," said Stanislaw R. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D.

Burzynski Research Institute, Inc. (OTCBB: BZYR) is a biopharmaceutical company committed to developing treatment for cancer based on genomic and epigenomic principles. Research and development efforts are focused on basic research and Phase III clinical trials.
