Got Cancer? Sorry, There’s No App for That

That’s right. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are no apps for treating Parkinson’s either. Or ALS. Or Alzheimer’s, or one of a large number of other diseases I could name and you don’t want to have. Numerous pharma and biotech companies have created more than a hundred different apps, but none of them are going to cure you. They simply provide patients or healthcare providers with product information or tools for tracking disease status or drug compliance. And unless current trends reverse themselves, there may be fewer new investments to find treatments for any of the diseases mentioned above in the foreseeable future.
