I would love to see this work across a broad spectrum.

Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Since I have been involved in a Clinical Trial at the NIH, I have met recipients of this treatment and it is amazing. Hopefully, someday, the cost will come down but I know it is effective against a number of blood related cancers in both children and adults. It is not without its issues, but it definately extends the life of many terminal patients and they receive a very good quality of life as well, with only a few side effects.

    What average individual can afford it?

    The important thing is the cost of treating a cancer patient currently versus getting 83% to remission. Then as we gather additional data and use the funding to expand the technology we can hope for broader and deeper impact.

    What is even more important is we are starting to understand the molecular nature of cancer cells and their weaknesses. Look up BTK inhibitors. We now can genetically profile a number of cancers and treat them very effectively.
