Dr. Akbar Khan of Medicor Cancer Centre - May 28, 2007 - .wma file The Dave Rutherford show was broadcast on Edmonton's CHED and other affiliated stations across Canada. The actual interview starts at about 9 minutes into the show. Dr. Akbar Khan from Medicor said he wasn't actually doing research. Here are a few of his statements: Only 10 of his patients have been put on DCA. A compounding pharmacist mixes it when it gets to Canada. He didn't mention the name of the pharmacist. He refused to reveal where he's actually getting it from. His DCA is made in the U.S. and it is pharmaceutical grade. He said that he has fulfilled requirements and got Health Canada's approval to import it. Ontario regulations has allowed him to use the DCA. (Ontario laws do not regulate the importation of drugs into this country, but he said that the College of Pharmacists allows compounding pharmacists to do anything they want.) His patients have shown benefits or improvement, including tumour shrinkage. He's stunned and shocked over the benefits that he's seen.
