Medical scientists at the University of Heidelberg announced a breakthrough in the treatment of cancer.  It strengthens the immune system to fight cancerous cells and eliminates the need for chemo-therapy.
The results of cancer patients treated confirm the effectiveness of the treatment.  They predict that it will be available eveywhere within a year.

At last.  Treatment that does not enrich the pharmaceutical companies for eternity - a prevention.  It makes since that it was discovered at a university in a county with government funded medicine where medical breakthroughs in prevention are not in competition with private research that emphasizes curing diseases as they occur instead of preventing them.  Most preventions are funded by government funds even if they are paid to private research facilities.  Pharmaceutical companies don't get rich on prevention because once prevented, the need for the medicine is gone.

Thinking "conspiracy theory" - perhaps in the U.S. it's pharma that is encouraging parents not to vaccinate their children so now we have measles and whooping cough and soon more diseases like polio that were eradicated in this country through vaccines.  Someone is feeding parents garbage so they are afraid to vaccinate their children.  It must be someone who profits from widespread, contagious disease.  That would be pharma.

Exactly, DK.  Money is the driver in a capitalistic society. 
When government-funded institutions are involved, benefits to socieity are the priority.

Experiment drugs are just that – unproven.
 
We witnessed experimental drugs being used with the Ebola virus.  In this case, I think most people would take the experimental drug knowing that without a cure they would die.  .
Research facilities have used rats for experimentation.  Often Chimpanzees are used that relate more to the human.  It is sad that these animals must be sacrificed; however there are times when it does result in life-saving treatments.
It was also reported that too often an outbreak of disease, i.e., in Africa, doesn’t get attention until it appears in Europe or America.  Scientists want any new disease to be isolated and treated before it spreads, however that is still not the case.  Private pharmaceutical won’t spend money on research unless it can see a way to cover the costs and make a profit.  Government run research facilities are not control by profit objectives.  We need research that is done for the common good.
