[IP] Cure for Diabetes



Hi Jimb,

I respectfully disagree with you.  Any company large or small that comes up
with a cure for diabetes will earn jillions of dollars and possibly their
scientists will earn the Nobel prize as well.  I don't believe any drug
company, no matter how much they are currently earning off diabetes, would
hold back a cure or ethically stretch it out over time.  That is my opinion
based on my personal experiences of being a manager at two very large drug
companies.

Basically, there is no incentive to find a cure, UNLESS, they find a drug that
needs to be taken daily, say 1 pill a day that would cure you for 24 hours and
then you take it again. Bet it wouldn't be cheap.
