FDA Seeks Injunction Against ‘Anticancer’ Drug Maker

ROCKVILLE, Md—The FDA has accused Lane Labs-USA, Inc., of Allendale, NJ, with illegally promoting three products as treatments for cancer and other diseases, and is seeking a permanent federal court injunction against the marketing of the products: BeneFin, produced from shark cartilage; SkinAnswer, a glycoalkaloid skin cream; and MGN-3, a rice-bran extract.

The FDA noted that BeneFin is being studied as a cancer therapy under an investigational new drug application and it can be distributed for clinical trials. The legal action does not affect shark cartilage products that are lawfully marketed as dietary supplements.
