A recent study has been conducted, which explains how brain cancer affects men and women differently. According to that study, men are more likely to die due to brain cancer than their female counterparts.
Glioblastoma tumors, one of the rare subtypes of brain tumor, in men and women respond differently to the treatment. This research was conducted by Dr. Josh Rubin of Washington University, who found that the standard therapy for brain tumor is much more effective in the case of women, than men. And the similar results can be believed to be true about any other cancer type as well.
According to the American Cancer Society, around 10,000 women and 14,000 men were diagnosed with any sort of nasty brain tumor in 2018. Out of all types, Glioblastoma is one of the nastiest tumor having very low survival rate. Only 19% of the people aged up to 44 years, can live 5+ years after getting diagnosed with the tumor. And if the age is over 55, then the survival rate drops down to mere 5%.
Even though the survival rate is low overall, women tend to live longer than men once diagnosed with the tumor. Since the sex difference affected so much, Dr. Rubin decided to carry out the underlying differences in the behavior. The genetic structure – X and Y chromosomes in men, and X and X chromosomes in women play a major role in cancer behavior. These chromosomes lead to the cancer cells grow more quickly in men.
Overall, for any cancer treatment, personal therapy needs to take place, keeping into account the sex of the patient and their age as well. Since the hormones, testosterone and estrogen, vary greatly with age, the medicines have to be personalized depending upon the age of the patients.
New Headphones have Released in Market to Help you Stay Focused
Mindset, a new pair of headphones in market, plays tunes while preventing outside distractions and training the brain to concentrate. After putting the headphones, the electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors embedded in the top of the headphones start to monitor brainwaves in real time. This measurements can tell when the mind is wandering and when it is focused. It plays a tone as soon as it realises the mind is slipping from the given task.
According to Jacob Flood, who is a co-founder of Mindset, with time the brain learns to recognize distractions on its own and tunes itself. That means the headphones won’t be required to do so. What Mindset focuses on is to improve concentration and ability to get into deep flow state needed to absorb complex materials. Mindset is also designed to detect dips in attention due to fatigue and provide suggestion on how long it will take the brain to recover from it.
Concentration ability has become a general issue on college campuses. In a study conducted on more than 10,000 college students, results showed that more than half of them were on prescribed Adderall or other ADHD drug. Flood claims that Mindset can help curb this prescribed drug abuse.
Mindset is not yet a medically-certified device. A Federal Drug Association (FDA) approval takes years. Flood said that seeking FDA approval isn’t their priority. For now they are focussed on Mindset reaching as many consumers as possible, teaching them how to train your brain and improve concentration.
The results of using Mindset headphones are mixed. Some studies pointed out that it is expensive, time-consuming and its benefits are not long-lasting. But Flood sees Mindset headphones being something students will keep in backpack or a worker may have on their desk to control subconscious, to use it as a tool to further education & to improve work life.
