What’s Really Behind Better Therapeutics Rise 

Many companies, including penny stocks, in the health market are posting serious gains in today’s marketplace. A quick look at Better Therapeutics’ recent company news indicates several positive developments that could help power it even higher. For instance:

  • Better Therapeutics (NASDAQ:BTTX) joined a real-world evidence study at the Durham Veterans Administration (VA) Medical Center to produce evidence that supports payer coverage and reimbursement.

No FDA-approved therapeutics for NASH/NAFLD are currently available, the company says.

Cardiometabolic disorders are a leading precursor of serious cardiovascular problems, and Better Therapeutics is a penny stock that is carving out a first-mover advantage thanks to its breakthrough treatment model that features behavioral therapy delivered as prescription digital therapeutics.
