The Search for a Cure Continues

LIFE: A chronic, ubiquitous, ailment about which we actually know very little. Doctors generally advise that it be allowed to run its course, even though death is to be expected in 100% of cases.

While scientists agree that more research is the answer, billions of dollars are already expended annually to combat the rising tide of infection — trillions, if military applications are included.

Some researchers, citing the OPPC (ounce of prevention vs. pound of cure) axiom, maintain that prevention is the only viable strategy. However, that argument is rejected by those who contend that any such program could risk the pre-emption of an individual otherwise fated to discover the elusive cure.

The World Health Organization predicts that the number of people afflicted by the condition will soon rise to seven billion.
