OKLAHOMA CITY — Federal agents have raided the Lase Med cancer treatment center in Owasso after allegations it defrauded patients with promises to cure cancer and misbranded drugs.
Lase Med owner Antonella Carpenter told The Associated Press Friday that the allegations are "a lie."
A search warrant by U.S. Food and Drug Administration special agent Jeremy Bain says the raid was conducted July 11. It says agents seized computers, lasers, patient records, $7,800 cash and other items.
An affidavit says Lase Med mixes saline with an herbal product — then applies it topically or injects it into a cancerous tumor before using a laser to heat the area and allegedly kill the cancer.
Carpenter denies the product is a drug and says she uses a holistic approach to treat the disease.
