If they succeed with some drugs, it will be really helpful. Not only will their drugs be cheap, it may also force competitors to lower their prices! Also, OWH can attempt to cure "diseases of the poor" (like malaria) that are not attractive enough for existing drug companies.

There is no question of "if" they succeeded..they already have. Their vaccine "Paromycin" is already successfully approved by govt, manufactured and delivered to the health care centres in poor neighborhood of Bihar where the black fever is rampant. They have got money from Gates foundation..so, there is really a question of expanding from here on, not surviving! :)

Great work Ms. Hale!
