Your question makes a number of assumptions that I think are a little shall we say dark. While it isn't impossible to imagine multinational corporations attempting to curtail innovation if there is a profit motivation, it is unlikely that a cure could be suppressed once it was created. More likely is that likely curative ventures are just not getting funded, so the cures are not getting identified.
With the innovation that we have seen in the last 40 years, expect to see much happen in healrhcare BUT understand that major innovations in healthcare are going to be based upon the genetics, not pharmacological foundation over the next 20 years.
It should be exciting...
