Hello,

Today in healthcare news: What Apple’s new products tell us about its healthcare ambitions, Pfizer’s execs are feeling confident on vaccine data by the end of October, and an inside look at a men’s health startup that’s become a key testing player. 

Plus: We just got some data showing that one of the antibody drugs Eli Lilly’s developing with AbCellera might be able to help patients with COVID-19. In the group that took the medication, hospitalizations occurred in 1.7% of patients, compared to 6% of those who received a placebo. More on the results from Lilly here.
