An App to fight Glioblastoma

16 August 2019 0 By Roberto Pugliese

OurBrainBank is an innovative movement designed by, with and for people suffering from Glioblastoma (GBM). OurBrainBank allows people with GBM to better manage the disease and connect with other travelers suffering from the same condition using the OurBrainBank app.
Data reported by patients, including symptoms, mood and activity, will be analyzed by world-class researchers to identify insights, accelerate learning and significantly accelerate clinical studies. These data are important because often the symptoms provide more immediate information than the diagnostic tests that can be done with limited frequency.

This initiative, which focuses on people in the real world, aims to transform GBM from the terminal into a treatable and is fed by people who are most interested in this problem: people with glioblastoma multiforme.

Below is the video presentation of the initiative by Jessica Morris who contracted the disease in 2016 and is still with us. The App is in English but we are already in contact with the company that developed it to understand if it will be possible to develop a version located in Italy .
