+ - Diabetes May Be Reversed By Long-Used Vaccine, Drug-makers not interested-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes ""A tuberculosis vaccine in use for 90 years may help reverse Type 1 diabetes and eliminate the life- long need for insulin injections, say Harvard University researchers raising money to conduct large, human studies." "...they tried to interest every major drugmaker in developing the vaccine as a possible cure for diabetes. All told her there wasn’t enough money to be made in a cure that used an inexpensive, generically available vaccine.""
