Most big research and drug companies strive solely to make money. In many second or third world countries, there are many diseases that have been neglected beacuse a drug to treat these wouldn’t lead to any monetary profits. Much of the money allocated by the U.S governments as grants ignore these neglected diseases also.
One of the diseases that recently had an outbreak is Ebola. Even though this disease was discovered about 40 years ago, there is almost no drug to effectly counter it. This disease had many outbreaks and the most recent one has tore through Africa and has sent a shockwave through the whole world. At Antagen, we are currently researching for a cure for a disease.
