Scope of Market Reports –

Precision medicine is often called as Personalized Medicine. It is used to describe how genetic information about a person’s disease is being used to diagnose or treat their disease. Precision Medicine refers to the modification of medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each patient. It does not exactly mean the manufacturing of drugs or medical devices that are unique to a patient, but the ability to categorize individuals into sub-populations that diverge in their susceptibility to a particular disease. Preventive or therapeutic interventions can then be focused on those who will benefit, sparing cost and side effects for those who will not. The main aim of government regulations is to make Precision Medicines more accepted and it is focused towards genetic diseases related to oncology, skin, respiratory, central nervous system, cardiovascular, and infectious diseases.

The key objective of Cancergenomics is to improve personalized medicine through the DNA sequencing and analysis of patient tumors cells to find out new genetic mutation associated with specific cancers.

Genetic information has helped to increase the development and use of the newest cancer treatments like Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, Targeted Therapy and Precision Medicines. For example, the drug Imatinib was modified to inhibit an altered enzyme produced by a fused version of two genes found in chronic myelogenousleukemia. Another example is the breast cancer drug Trastuzumab which works only for women whose tumors have a particular genetic profile calledHuman Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2(HER-2 positive). It is also found that lung cancer patients whose tumors are positive forEstimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (EGFR)mutations will respond to the drugs Gefitinib and Erlotinib which target this mutation. Conversely, colon cancer patients whose tumors have a mutation in a gene called KRAS (K-RAS) derive less benefit from the drugs Cetuximab and Panitumumab. The genomic information made by The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) will boostthe research to develop similar treatment strategies for

As 75 Hard fitness program trends on TikTok, experts raise red flags

As the coronavirus pandemic rages on and quarantine orders are being extended, people have turned to new places to get workout inspiration at home.

Fitness videos on TikTok have grown exponentially since the pandemic began, as many looked for new ways to stay in shape. Fitness challenges like #DragonFlag, #OneMinuteFitness and #PlankChallenge have gone viral in recent months, and celebrities like Carrie Underwood have even joined in.

Experts urge those just starting out to take it slow before jumping into some of the advanced moves seen in popular TikTok videos, and the intense program called 75 Hard that’s trending on the platform is no exception.

The 75 Hard program, created by entrepreneur and podcaster Andy Frisella and described as a “mental toughness” program, outlines rules users must follow for 75 days. They are:

  • Do two 45-minute workouts a day, one of which must be outside
  • Follow a healthy diet with zero alcohol or cheat days
  • Take a progress picture every day
  • Drink one gallon of water daily
  • Read 10 pages a day of a nonfiction book
  • If you fail, you must start over again at Day One
  • 75 Hard found life on TikTok during the pandemic after 22-year-old Rylee Ollearis documented her journey doing the program from May to July. Her first video about it has racked up more than 4 million views.

    “I decided to post on TikTok for my five followers at the time… ‘Hey guys, I’m doing this crazy challenge, this crazy program,’ and the video started to blow up,” Ollearis told “GMA.”

    “I’ve almost given up myself a few too many times in the past,” she explained about what drew her to the intense program. “I wanted to prove to myself for this time that I could be tough enough to complete something that I set my mind to.”

    Ollearis’ audio from her Day One video is now used in more than 500 TikTok videos of other users trying out the program for themselves. The hashtag #75Hard itself has over 126 million views on the platform.

    The recent college graduate is now a wellness coach and said many people have reached out to her about the program since finding her videos. While she recognized that the program is a major commitment, she said she chose to do it the middle of quarantine because she could put the majority of her daily focus on making sure she was being mindful with her workouts and recovery.

    “Understanding that two 45-minute workouts every single day is a lot. You’re pushing your body, but you also have to ensure that you’re getting the right recovery, that you’re including active rest into those days to make sure that you’re not hurting yourself in any way,” she said.

    Experts raise ‘red flags’ about 75 Hard

    One of the concerns about 75 Hard, according to many experts, is many may opt to ignore the 75 Hard recommendations and begin the workout plan without seeking advice from a physician first, and this can be

    The Trends Shaping the Future of the Personal Fitness Training Industry

    Traditionally, if you wanted to get fit, you would sign up for a gym and go there regularly to lift weights, use the treadmill or perform other exercises. Alternatively, you could focus on cardio and take up running, cycling, or other sports. In either case, you could get a personal trainer to provide guidance and help you achieve your goals.

    The events of this year have changed those options drastically, however. As a result of the restriction on movements around the world, outdoor sports have not been an option for a few months, and nor have going to the gym or meeting with your personal trainer. Those happenings have all culminated in a defining moment for the fitness industry, shaking the traditional models up and presenting a plethora of opportunities for entrepreneurs willing to exercise their business muscles.

    Streaming Services

    The global online fitness market size was estimated to have a value of  6,046 Million dollars in 2019 many studies have projected that it will likely attain a size of 59,231 Million dollars in 2027. That would represent growth of about 33.1% annually each year. This growth is largely driven by a variety of products and services that have sprung up to revolutionize the fitness industry by making it safer and more convenient to access fitness training through on-demand classes and workouts taught by experienced fitness trainers. These are typically accessible using apps that can be downloaded onto mobile phones, computers, and TVs. The personal trainer experience is diluted to an extent in this model because the classes and workouts are not personal in that they are produced like any other video and then published for the access of all subscribers to the service.

    Nonetheless, personal trainers are able to still provide effective direction and motivation for most people to have a complete and satisfying workout. In addition, the prices for the streaming services are generally very affordable, with many of them being in the $20 range, thus making removing cost as a barrier for most people.

    Virtual Coaching Classes

    For those who find the pre-recorded workouts too impersonal, the next step up is to find a personal trainer who offers virtual coaching classes. These classes are held using tools like Zoom and Google Meet which though not originally intended for use by personal trainers, lend themselves well to the purpose. With those tools, trainers can cater to groups of students in live sessions and offer a more personal and interactive session that can be obtained using the streaming services.

    Many startups have launched to facilitate these classes, connecting students to personal trainers. Even with the fees that these companies charge for their services, personal trainers are still able to earn sums of money that far outstrip the average personal trainer salary. Most of the services allow the personal trainers

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The recent surge in coronavirus cases in Nebraska has prompted one expert to predict that the number of deaths in the state linked to the virus could nearly quadruple by the start of 2021.

    Dr. James Lawler, a director at the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Global Center for Health Security in Omaha, said Friday that the state could have more than 2,500 COVID-19-related deaths by January if current trends continue without more stringent public health measures or better compliance with the measures already in place. The state has so far reported 652 deaths linked to the virus.

    “If the outbreak continues at this pace, and we don’t implement much more stringent public health interventions — or at least if we don’t get people to adopt those behaviors, which ultimately is the most important thing — I think we could easily see three times the total we’ve seen so far,” he said to the Omaha World-Herald.

    Nebraska reported 1,087 new virus cases Saturday to give the state a total of 70,732 cases so far. The rate of new cases in the state ranked sixth-highest in the nation Saturday.

    And the number of people hospitalized with the virus set another new record at 612 Saturday. That is more than 2.5 times the spring peak of 232 set on May 27.

    The rate of new cases per 100,000 Nebraska residents over the past two weeks registered 694.56 on Saturday, according to an Associated Press analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University.

    The seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Nebraska has risen over the past two weeks from 795.71 new cases per day on Oct. 17 to 1,019.29 new cases per day on Saturday.

    At-Home Workouts Reshape the Fitness Industry | Trends

    The world of fitness and exercise has been fundamentally changed by the pandemic. People are doing more workouts at home, purchasing home gym equipment, and relying more than ever on remote fitness coaching.

    The E-Commerce Times caught up with insiders from the health and wellness industry for perspective on how the population is staying active at home.

    “The pandemic has greatly affected the way people are exercising,” Brent Hartman, president of B3 Personal Training, explained to the E-Commerce Times. “In the beginning, when gyms were shut down, everyone was rushing to purchase equipment for their home gym. It’s almost as if everyone has a home gym set up at home.

    “The pandemic also forced a switch to virtual or online workout options. Classes were all done online. Personal training was done with Zoom or Skype. Peloton and Mirror sales skyrocketed. All of these options were able to be done with everyone’s home gyms.”

    Exercise by Design

    Designing a home gym space is a kind of art, involving both a sense of interior design and an understanding of what space and equipment will best serve one’s needs.

    “A home gym should never appear sterile or static,” Bryan Green, founder and CEO of Aktiv Solutions, explained to the E-Commerce Times. “It’s important to integrate functional fitness equipment and the aesthetic fundamentals of interior design during your planning for optimal motivation.

    “Consider for the designated area or room conversion the following: lighting, wall colors, floor coverings and other environmental embellishments for an inspirational and aesthetically pleasing space that compliments your home. Consider how your home gym space will evolve and change as your exercise preferences may grow or modify over time.”

    Creating a home gym is, after all, a kind of interior design.

    “In designing a great home gym, the problem to solve is not in finding equipment, but rather in creating functional space,” said Green. “Just as with your kitchen, there are no shortages of appliances. How those appliances come together to accommodate the wide range of choices within the confines of more limited space is the value of smart planning and design.

    “Foundationally, we focus on reverse engineering the environment around how our clients and their families want to train and move in the space. This begins with recognizing the footprint.”

    It’s important, as well, to consider storage space when designing a home gym.

    “Home gyms require smart storage solutions and need to accommodate smaller footprints,” said Green. “The last thing you want is to find yourself tripping over equipment. Smart use of space and storage is critical.”

    Holistic Approach

    Ultimately, creating a home gym space can lead to thinking more broadly about designing for a sense of wellness and overall health.

    “Beyond just buying up equipment, we’ve experienced a massive uptick in clients who are interested in taking a holistic approach to creating permanent wellness space within their homes,” said Green. “Our home gym design division has been inundated with helping plan
