Cancer Treatment Centers of America: FTC Settlement, 26/2/2000
Cancer Treatment Centers of America: FTC Settlement

Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Inc., and two affiliated hospitals have agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission allegations that they made false and unsubstantiated claims in advertising and promoting their cancer treatments. The FTC alleged that the respondents could not back up claims, among others, that through certain specific procedures such as "whole body hyperthermia" and "brachytherapy," they were able to successfully treat certain forms of cancer unresponsive to conventional treatment. The respondents also allegedly failed to substantiate a claim that their five-year survivorship rate had ranked among the highest recorded for cancer patients.

The FTC's complaint names Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Inc., based in Arlington, Illinois; Midwestern Regional Medical Center Inc., based in Zion, Illinois; and Memorial Medical Center and Cancer Institute, Inc., based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The respondents advertise and dispense cancer treatments and related health care services on an inpatient and outpatient basis, under the trade name "Cancer Treatment Centers of America" (CTCA).

Questionable Cancer Therapies, 4/3/2013
Only ten showed no progression of their cancer, and only two had a quantifiable improvement in quality of life. (The fact that ten cancers did not progress is not evidence that the shark cartilage was responsible for this. The progression of cancer is not always rapid.) The researchers concluded: "Shark cartilage was inactive in patients with advanced stages of cancer, specifically in breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer." The study was sponsored by Cancer Treatment Research Foundation, Cartilage Technologies (a manufacturer), and Cancer Treatment Centers of America. A few months later, Cartilage Technologies announced that it would support no additional research on shark cartilage as a cancer remedy .

The HealthPrints Test Program: Are HealthPrints Like Fingerprints?, 21/8/2006
Several commercial Web sites offer tests that differ considerably from what the USPSTF recommends. One of the most elaborate is the HealthPrint program offered by Your Future Health (YFH), of Taveras, Florida. The company "team" includes Ellie Cullen, R.N.; her husband; their son and daughter; their children's spouses; and a consultant with credentials in laboratory science. Mrs Cullen is said to have over 25 years in clinical nursing, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling. The consultant is Oscar G. Rasmussen, Ph.D., who, in the early 1980s, was president of the American Society for Elemental Testing Laboratories (ASETL), an organization whose mission was to ensure the accuracy of hair analysis laboratories. (Commercial hair analysis is a bogus test used for prescribing dietary supplements .) Rasmussen has also served on the staff of American International Hospital (now called Cancer Treatment Centers of America), a hospital that has engaged in questionable nutrition practices as well as misleading advertising. The other five team members have no apparent health-related training or credentials .
