I noted in the petition that profit-motivated industry will develop cancer immunotherapy treatment on its own without government funding. Should I have suggested the opposite, that it is in the financial interest of industry not to develop true preventive cure that reduces cancer incidence rates?
And perhaps more significant is whether government, after making an additional $1B investment, will own enough of the immunotherapy patent rights to prevent the monopolistic price gouging of essential medical products that has been so much
in the news
lately. Shouldn't tax payers get ownership in return for their investment?
