Gene Marker-Oncogene Tests!

Yesterday, I got my Gene Marker or Oncogene Testing done at Sonora Lab. The

test tubes are now on ice and are on the way to a lab in California where it is done.

Many people want to know more about the clinic and just what Dr. Burzynski if you are interested...I have copied a little from "The Townsend

Letter" Aug/Sept. 2008 issue below that is simple and very interesting. Happy


In the 1960s, Stanislaw Burzynski, MD, PhD, a young physician and researcher in Poland,

discovered novel peptides, or protein fragments, in the blood. Noting that these peptides were

absent in patients who had cancer, he theorized that they must have something to do with the

body's cancer protection system. And indeed they do, for Dr. Burzynski's discovery cuts right to

the heart of both the cause and the cure for cancer.

Cancer cells, whether in the brain, pancreas, lung, breast, or elsewhere, have one thing in

common: undisciplined, uncontrolled division that can destroy tissues around them, metastasize,

and cause death. This is driven by changes in gene expression, chief among them a "silencing" or

"turning off" of tumor suppressor genes, resulting in an increase in oncogene activity that leads

to cancer cell proliferation. If silencing tumor suppressor genes increases oncogene activity and

spurs cancer growth, then the inverse is also true. Turning on tumor suppressor genes and

turning off oncogenes shuts down cancer.

A Real Cancer Cure
This is exactly what the peptides Dr. Burzynski discovered – which he named antineoplastons –

do. Antineoplastons are the body's innate defense system against cancer; they normalize gene

expression and prevent unruly cell division. When these peptides are in short supply, cancer

goes on a cell-division rampage. But when they're abundant, cancer cell proliferation stops, and

cancer goes away. It's that simple.

Antineoplastons explain the inexplicable in cancer. How can a woman have a normal

mammogram with no evidence of tumors, then die nine months later from rapidly growing

breast cancer? Why does another woman with the same type of cancer survive for years, with or

without any treatment? The answer lies in the concentration of antineoplastons circulating in the

patient's body. Those who succumb to cancer are virtually devoid of these peptides, while those

who have them in greater abundance are far more likely to survive.

Dr. Burzynski figured out how to isolate these peptides from blood and urine and eventually how

to synthesize them in a lab and administer them to patients. He first proved the safety of this

therapy. There's no danger of antineoplaston treatment harming healthy tissues because it

doesn't poison or burn cells – it simply gives the body what it needs to stop uncontrolled cell

division. And he has clearly demonstrated its effectiveness in scores of clinical trials and

thousands of patients, many of whom were singing Dr. Burzynski's praises on that special night

in Houston. This is why I consider antineoplastons to be the single-most important breakthrough

in cancer therapy ever and possibly the only one we will ever need. Antineoplastons are to

rapidly growing and universally fatal cancers what penicillin is to pneumonia.

For those of you who have made it to the bottom and have read

this....congratulations! It's really interesting isn't it. So, next week is the 3rd

petscan and then I have an appointment with Dr. Burzynski on Oct. 7th. Larry

and I will be heading off to the Texas clinic again. Miracles never cease!!!


  1. That is so interesting. I'm glad you shared it. I'm glad you are feeling so much better. Keep writing!
    Love, KATHY (Adair)

  2. thanks for the info :) it's always great to hear all the details and learn more! good luck in Texas
