Because it is a big money maker and the idea that a cure would be allowed to make it to the public would mean drasticly less profits for the pharm comps/medical industry. Really think they wouldn't stop that any way possible to them?

Definitely keep an eye on this story. We've heard reports like this...an 'cure' treatment for MS, Cancer, AIDS. However, in a few months...all research suddenly stops. Why? Because corporate influences are exerted on the government daily.
There is no money in the cure, just for the treatment. Pfizer and other large pharmaceutical corporations would rather spend their research funds treating erectile dysfunctions and receding hairlines than cure a disease in Africa that kills millions.
And want to know why? Starving and impoverish people don't have Visa or Mastercard

In a spectacular development, scientists in Manchester, UK, have developed a genetic therapy that seems to eradicate all types of cancer. The new therapy involves injecting genetically modified T-cells (the cells within our body that fight infection) and using them to seek out cancer cells and destroy them. The new treatment also leaves otherwise healthy cells untouched, unlike other regular cancer treatments.
Scientists in Manchester say a cure for all types of cancer could be available on the NHS within five years.
The world's first patient trials in a technique which genetically engineers cells will take place at the city's Christie Hospital later this year.
The treatment - gene-modified t-cell therapy - could replace more intrusive treatments like chemotherapy.

This is absolutely amazing. If this treatment works, then it could save literally millions of lives and eradicate a plague that has beset humanity for years.
Incidentally, the new therapy involves boosting the body's own defences against the disease, which has been the idea behind many alternative and unconventional treatments one can find discussed on the Internet.
Hopefully, further testing and trials will demonstrate this to be the Holy Grail that has been sought after for so long and we can rid humanity of a disease that is responsible for many premature or avoidable deaths.
