Well do you blame them? Clinical trials cost millions of dollars, rising as high as $1 billion, and 10-15 years to complete. Even if DCA pans out, there is no profit at all to be gained from it - which is the antithesis of a business.

It would make far more sense for independent or academic laboratories to go into researching this potential lead (and I'm pretty sure a few independent trials by academic researchers are underway too!)

Dichloroacetate (DCA) is a small molecule drug that has long been used to treat congenital mitochondrial abnormalities. The mitochondria (cell power source), is vital for several reasons. One of them is acting as oxygen sensors and control, as well as controlling programmed cell death. This process is known as apoptosis. The significance here is that this process is suppressed in cancer, a disease that’s characterized by uncontrolled cell growth. Dr. Evengelos Michelakis, associate chair and medical researcher at the University of Alberta’s faculty of medicine and his team of researchers discovered DCA as a possible cure for cancer more than 10 years ago. Since then, it’s received very little attention from the medical industry,

ONE clinical trial (finally) is under way, and the estimated date for completion is March 2015. You can read more about the clinical trial details here clinicaltrials.gov...
