Why Look for Cures? Despite vaccines' excellent track record, most Big Pharma companies that pursued other avenues of attack find themselves in the difficult position of commercializing antibiotics that have been made virtually impotent by the constant mutation and evolution of the hardiest of the planet's inhabitants.

And while that worrisome to Nabi's leaders and workforce, it's not their main concern. To illustrate their focus, Jooste asks a simple question: "Why bother looking for a cure when you can prevent it in the first place?" As obvious as that sounds, Nabi's on to something big.
