I don't see any reason why this can't be investigated further.

Well here's a reason for you. It's not going to make Big Pharma millions of dollars.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22901085

And you really believe that don't you?

It takes on average $900 million to develop a single drug. Think about it. $900 million. Thatís an amount of money that even Bill Gates would have trouble finding down the back of the sofa on a regular basis. Of the drugs that get out of pre-clinical testing, 70% will fail at Phase 1 trial stage. One of the reasons that drug discovery is so expensive is that (apart from the fact that itís difficult), the pharmaceutical industry is so heavily regulated.

Now Iím not defending Big Pharma. Far from it. I can't stand them. Their price fixing and handling of off-patent drugs in the 3rd world is criminal, they arenít always transparent with their methods and data and when they mess up, people die. But they exist to make money and if, for example, 1 in 3 people in the Western world will get cancer in their lifetime do you not think that they would exploit a cure, any cure and have us over a barrel to make money from it? Not to mention the kudos, the plaudits, the Nobel Prizes that any scientist would receive if they managed to cure the potentially incurable? The idea that they would regularly throw away close to a billion dollars while sitting on possibly one of the most lucrative ideas of all time is laughable.
