In five years, there could be a vaccine to defeat AIDS, genital herpes, Alzheimer’s, Malaria, and Tuberculosis among several other common illnesses such as urinary tract infections and grass allergies.

Investments in the drug industry have allowed to huge strides to be made in what is now seen as a “crucial path to growth,” a phrase that is uttered mainly because of the success stories behind the vaccines for pneumococcal disease and rotavirus, the two viral strains known to cause meningitis and cervical cancer.
Needless to say, the projected success of a successful vaccination against AIDS or Alzheimer’s diseases is guaranteed to bring in billions, if not trillions, of dollars in revenue.
Technology is amazing is it not?
