Reminds me of the discovery of the antibiotic vancomycin. This attacks a fundamental building block of the cell wall. At the time, and for years afterwards, there were lots of papers and scientists stating that this was so fundamental that resistance would be impossible.

Resistance to vancomycin and related antibiotics is now a major problem.

The sales people need to sell the idea to investors, then sell it to doctors etc.... Anyway, life finds a way.
