Burzynski Research Institute, Inc. (BRI) is headquartered in Houston, TX and has a research facility in Stafford, TX. BRI was incorporated in 1984 in order to engage in the development of growth-inhibiting peptides, amino acid derivatives and organic acids, which are known under the trade name “Antineoplastons”. Shares of BRI are publically traded under the ticker symbol BZYR.
An Investigational New Drug (IND) Application submitted to the FDA was approved in 1993 (IND # 43,742). Under the terms of the IND, Antineoplastons (ANPs) can be investigated in FDA reviewed and Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved clinical trials.
On September 3, 2004, the FDA granted the Company’s request for ‘orphan drug designation’ (ODD) for ANPs A10 and AS2-1 (used in combination) for the treatment of patients with brain stem gliomas. On October 30, 2008, the FDA granted BRI’s request for ODD for ANPs A10 and AS2-1 (used in combination) for the treatment of all pediatric and adult gliomas. ODD qualifies the IND holder for various development incentives, including tax credits for qualified clinical testing.

Work in Progress
Since 1993, patients with a variety of advanced cancers have been enrolled in Phase II clinical trials of Antineoplastons. Based on their review of BRI’s Investigator Brochure and annual reports, the FDA, in its communication with BRI dated March 31, 2014, advised end-of phase II meetings for the following brain and brainstem tumors: grade 3 anaplastic gliomas, specifically anaplastic astrocytoma, anaplastic oligodendroglioma, and mixed oligoastrocytoma, grade 2 gliomas, specifically diffuse astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, mixed oligoastrocytoma, and all brainstem gliomas. For all of these brain and brainstem tumors, the FDA believes that phase II safety and efficacy results justify further drug development.
