    I call BS.  It is not this simple and no pharmaceutical company would ignore research like this because though the scientific process is simple they could still patent it (if it worked) and make a boat load.

    Also their claims about it not being able to be patented are wrong.  The process existing as is wouldn't be "patenable" but any alterations to the process, any chemical or agent created to institute the process, or device, delivery system ,etc. would be patenable and thus a huge money maker.

    <div>Yeah, the article just says it can't be patented, but it doesn't say why. I was hoping someone would explain one way or the other.</div>

    Sorry, total BS.

    I should also argue that without providing peer reviewed studies and journal articles I doubt the claims they make about the research.

    They are talking about using a medication that is a well known and "old" one, therefore, at least in America it's no longer patent protected.  I don't know much about patent law in Canada.  I would argue trying to patent the pathways through which the drug reacts but they would argue its a natural process, which is something that cannot be patented.  But just because these two aspects aren't possible doesn't mean there aren't ways to make a ton of money off of this if the research is there to prove the results.
