Personalized cancer therapy utilizes an understanding of each patient’s genetic make-up to unravel the biology of their cancer. Using this information, our physicians attempt to identify treatment strategies that may be more effective and cause fewer side effects than would be expected with standard treatments. By performing genetic tests and analyses, our physicians can customize treatment to each patient’s needs.
Conventional therapy may be utilized in the treatment of some patients at the Burzynski Clinic and is frequently combined with targeted therapies to maximize the effectiveness and minimize the negative impact of conventional therapy
Surgery, radiation therapy, and specialized imaging such as MRI, CT and PET scan, are provided at other local medical facilities.
Approved Targeted Therapies
Targeted therapy includes drugs that are aimed at specific genes or proteins that are only found in cancer cells or their environment and contribute to cancer growth and survival. It is used to block the growth and spread of cancer cells. Currently there are a number of targeted therapies approved by the FDA to treat many types of cancers. These are available for use at the Burzynski Clinic.
The Burzynski Clinic has extensive experience with the combination of targeted agents and the drug phenylbutyrate (PB), which targets multiple genetic abnormalities simultaneously. This experience is documented in published articles in the peer-reviewed literature.

Individual Patient Care and Continuous Follow-Up
We believe the quality of the treatment is determined not only by the effectiveness of the cancer therapy but also by the quality of the patient's life during and after the treatment.
Burzynski Clinic provides a wide range of services to assure the comfort, convenience and well being of our patients, including 24-hour monitoring, dietary supplements and nutrition counseling.
We take pride in offering the highest quality of personalized patient care. Each patient receives personal attention of a medical team assigned to them for the duration of their treatment.
Our supervision continues after the patient returns home and resumes care under their local physician until the treatment is completed.
