If a company had a "cure" they would be making crazy money selling it. If I had it- I would love to sell it. Sounds greedy, but who would not want to be rich? I've been hoping since 1999, seen many highly marketed products come and go. I suspect we will see more products come along with a "scientific breakthrough." I don't subscribe to conspiracy theory, too much greed would not allow it to stand.

If a cure is found, it would be the result of a huge amount of time and money by the pharmaceutical company. It doesn't make sense for them to then withhold that treatment and deny themselves the huge profits.

It's less that there are vested interests in keeping the status quo, but just that it's more costly to find a new and more permanent solution than just keeping the current cash-cow going. Investments in new medicine or new forms of treatment are extremely expensive and have uncertain long-term profit scenarios. Besides doing the 10+ years or research, then comes the issue of trying to get it through the proper regulatory bodies that give it a stamp of approval and then getting it to market. Getting that kind of funding is really tough. It's much easier to just stick to what is happening now and get your money that way. It's a big problem in the health care industry and in many others as well (like in the energy field). Yes, vested interests can get in the way often, but I wouldn't think of a cabal of people coming together to block something; they really don't have to since the hill to climb to get something new is so high to begin with.

This is all the standard short-term profit margins getting in the way of long-term solutions.
