6. AN ORTHODOX NURSE TALKS CANDIDLY:
"EVERYONE AROUND HERE ACCEPTS THAT HE'S A QUACK"
Dean Mouscher also posted the following conversation
he had with a "protocol nurse" about another treatment, called
TRA, coincidentally developed in Houston.
Dean: What have your results been with TRA?
Nurse: We don't know yet, we've been doing it for too short a time and
the results haven't been tabulated.
Dean: How long have you been doing it?
Nurse: A year.
Dean: Is that too short a time to get a feel for whether it's working
or not? These tumors progress pretty quickly. I would think a year would
be enough to see if you had any results or not.
Nurse: Well, like I told you, the results haven't been tabulated yet,
so we don't know if it represents an improvement or not.
Dean: There haven't been any spectacular results?
Nurse (defensively): No, no spectacular results, but it hasn't worked
any worse than anything else.
[Dean adds: That's easy to believe, since everything else is essentially
Dean: Have you heard of a guy by the name of Burzynski who apparently
practices in Houston?
Nurse: Hah! He's a quack.
Dean: Why do you say that?
Nurse (slightly stunned and offended that he questioned her blanket statement):
Well, I told you he's from Houston, and everybody around here pretty much
accepts that he's a quack. He derives his treatment from urine.
Dean adds: I couldn't help shaking my head again at this very interesting
mentality. Even if Burzynski never cured anyone, why is he any more of
a quack than they are? After all, they themselves have never been able
to help anyone with a glioblastoma multiforme. And yet they're so self-important
with their little projects, spending years and who knows how much money
seeing if new drug XYZ prolongs survival from 4.3 to 4.7 months."
