Exclusive breastfeeding practice during first six months of an infant’s life in Bangladesh: a country based cross-sectional study
Stepwise regression model exhibited that most of the important predictors were modifiable factors for exclusive breastfeeding and authorities should provide basic education on EBF to educated mothers, and organize more general campaign on E BF.

This review reconnoitre the two major pathways (intrinsic and extrinsic) targeted cancer therapeutics, steering toward chief modulators of these pathways, such as B-cell lymphoma 2 protein family members (pro- and antiapoptotic), inhibitor of apoptosis proteins, and the foremost thespian of extrINSic pathway regulator, tumour necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing agent.
Isolation, characterization and the multi‐lineage differentiation potential of rabbit bone marrow‐derived mesenchymal stem cells
Interestingly, differentiated rbMSCs demonstrated higher levels of osteogenic (Runx2) and chondrogenic (Sox9) gene expressions than that of hMSCs (P < 0.05), and may be used as a comprehensive set of criteria to define or characterize rb MSCs.

It is demonstrated that MSCs from PB maintain similar characteristics and have similar chondrogenic differentiation potential to those derived from BM, while producing comparable s‐GAG expressions to chondrocytes.
Effect of Growth Differentiation Factor 5 on the Proliferation and Tenogenic Differentiation Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells in vitro
GDF-5 does not alter the proliferation rates of hMSCs, but induces an optimal tenogenic differentiation response at 100 ng/ml, which excludes hMSC differentiation into other lineages.

Age at menarche, duration of menstrual flow and BMI were found to be the most important factors affecting irregular menstrual cycles in Bangladesh, suggesting that age at me- narche and duration of menstruation flow are significant common factors which affect menstrual pain.
Hand Grip Strength in the Adult Malaysian Population
Hand grip strength was significantly correlated with hand dominance, gender, occupation, height, and weight, but not body mass index; men were stronger than women in all age-groups, and the dominant hand was consistently stronger than the non-dominant side.
Multiple regression analysis of factors influencing dominant hand grip strength in an adult Malaysian population

Assessment of how various physical and social factors predict normal grip strength in an adult Malaysian population of mixed Asian ethnicity found that dominant hand grip strength was positively associated with height and body mass index, and negatively associated with age for both sexes.

Ginger extract could considerably reduce IL-1β-induced oxidative stress and consequent mitochondrial apoptosis as the major mechanisms of chondrocyte cell death and may be considered as a natural herbal product to prevent OA-induced cartilage destruction in the clinical setting.
The use of X‐shaped cross‐link in posterior spinal constructs improves stability in thoracolumbar burst fracture: A finite element analysis
The stability for L1 burst fracture fixation was best achieved by using long segmental posterior instrumentation constructs and an XL cross‐link configuration, which resulted in reduced stress to the adjacent vertebral bodies and screw necks.
