Neither Bonita businessman William Fry, the director of the American Metabolic Institute, nor Tijuana physician Geronimo Rubio, its medical director, responded to numerous requests for interviews from the Union-Tribune.
Just weeks into the treatments, the Lucianos said, Rubio
presented CAT scans that purportedly showed their child's cancer had disappeared.
The Lucianos said they spent $90,000 and three months at the clinic, but Silas' condition continued to deteriorate.
They took Silas to a traditional Tijuana hospital for an additional set of tests.
Doctors there confirmed the boy's body was riddled with cancer.
The Lucianos confronted Rubio
with the hospital tests.
They said he
assured them their son was fine and promised a new, stronger course of experimental treatments.
