What is you take on the idea of companies like Merck trying to suppress a “cloning cure” for balding, with all this huge amount of money being made on drugs like propecia?
Do you think that this might be preventing a cure for hairloss because in the end its all about the money.
Your question is like a set up for a ridiculous Hollywood movie “conspiracy theory”. I hope that you asked this question in jest.
Merck, like all drug companies, are entitled to make money (a return on its investment) from its research in the drug development process and they can not possibly conspire to stop progress. The rewards for cloning hair and the riches that will be derived from finding that magical cure, will be reward enough for anyone cleaver enough to solve the cloning problem. Did you know that it costs about $800 million to take a drug from development to the market? It also takes about 15 years where the money is consumed on things like tests and trials. Without a profit, they would stop creating new miracle drugs for all of us that improve our lives.
