White Paper on HAI: A Big Problem, Why Not A Big Business?

Nosocomial, or healthcare treatment-acquired infections (broadly labeled as 'hospital-acquired infections") are a growing problem. So why haven't they been a great business for pharmaceutical companies?  Why are declines expected in sales this year?
