Whether their search was spurred on by the creation of the cure or not doesn't have any bearing on the events of the film. It's irrelevant to the story, and there was no reason to bring it up. The cure had nothing to do with what they ultimately wanted to do, or anything that happens for the rest of the film.
I get your point, or lack of one, but you're obviously missing mine.
