Seller of Cancer Cures Warned by FDA

On February 9, 2012, the U.S. FDA sent a Warning Letter to BioAnue Laboratories, Inc. informing it that its websites at www.tumorx.com, www.cancerx.org, www.hopewelltechnologieslimited.com, and www.vmhe.com were promoting various supplements as drugs able to cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent disease. The supplements include "Bovine Cartilage," "TumorX BioEnerGenics Co-Enzyme -Q1O," "TumorX Cardio Clean," "Diabetic Mender," "TumorX Formula CX," and "Stroke Mender."

Examples of some of the claims observed on the sites, include:

• "Bovine Cartilage Stops Tumor Growth"

• "Bovine cartilage has been demonstrated ... to stop/inhibit the spread, growth and proliferation of cancer cells."

• "Bovine cartilage is used to prevent and treat cancer and treat HIV/AIDS ... "

• "[B]ovine cartilage has antitumor and immunoregulatory effects."

• "TumorX Brand products aid in the structure and function of the body; this allows deficiency induced diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer's, just to name a few, to be reversed .... "

The websites also contain disease claims in the form of personal testimonials, such as, "I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I had 4 lumps in my left breast and 2 in my right breast with the largest being 5cm. I found TumorX and began taking the full protocol. After only one month of the products, the AMAS Test came back! I am now cancer free!"

The FDA informed BioAnue that "the unlawful disease treatment and prevention claims on your website and in metatags were too numerous to list" and it required BioAue to take prompt action to correct the violations.
