The movie makes a pretty good case (showing documents that are available 
for scrutiny on the site) that this was astoundingly--perhaps 
maliciously--bungled; that Burzynski's explicit and empirically based 
protocol was repeatedly violated, and that he protested and made 
repeated efforts to have it reinstated *during* the study, so this is 
not a post facto attempt to explain away the failure.
