The Economic and Health-related Impact of Crohn's Disease

The Economic and Health-related Impact of Crohn's Disease in the United States: Evidence from a Nationally Representative Survey

Surely, 593,000 to 780,000 people affected at a cost of nearly $3.5 Billion annually deserves greater funding for research!

I read the abstract. While all this is true, the fact is that drug firms do not gain if a cure is found. In that respect, the only option is public funding as wellness can be called a public good. I do not know about public funds available in the US or UK - would like to know if governments have a role in this regard.
