HOUSTON (AP) - The state medical board has accused a Houston cancer doctor of falsely advertising his unlicensed cancer drug.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texas Medical Board has filed a formal complaint against Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski over the advertising of his antineoplaston therapy, which has drawn fire from the medical profession for more than four decades.

The board can revoke a doctor's medical license. A board spokesman declined to comment on the complaint, but the doctor's lawyer, Richard Jaffe, calls the complaint "illegitimate, based on a nonbinding, informal adversary letter." Jaffe predicts the allegations will never make it to a scheduled December hearing before the State Office of Administrative Hearings.

Burzynski was acquitted of a 1995 federal indictment accusing him of violating a ban on out-of-state shipments of an unapproved drug.
