New Research on Leukemia and New Questions

Standard

Science Daily has a report on research that shows a new pathway for developing treatments for leukemia and other cancers.

“Important signaling pathway for leukemia cells discovered”  https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/09/160902082537.htm

This research was a cooperative project involving scientists from Finland and China.

It’s great to see real progress.  However, one wonders why the new reports are from offshore research centers, when the US presumably spends so much money on funding research and provides tax and pricing “incentives” to pharmaceutical companies to promote R&D?

Are the massive profits from the US Pharma industry simply the product of ripping off the US taxpayer?
