Women health research dealing with female reproductive systems and breasts is very important. Latest research concentrating on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period plays a major role. Gynaecological examination is quite intimate, more so than a routine physical exam. It also requires unique instrumentation such as the speculum. An abdominal or vaginal ultrasound can be used to confirm any abnormalities appreciated with the bimanual examination or when indicated by the patient's history. Pre- and post-operative medical management will often employ many standard drug therapies such as antibiotics, diuretics, antihypertensives and antiemetics. Additionally, gynaecologists make frequent use of specialized hormone-modulating therapies such as Clomifene citrate and hormonal contraception to treat disorders of the female genital tract that are responsive to pituitary or gonadal signals. Surgery, however, is the mainstay of gynaecological therapy. The rise of sub-specialties within gynaecology which are primarily surgical in nature, like urogynaecology and gynaecological oncology have strengthened the reputations of gynaecologists as surgical practitioners.
Child Health is one of the vital branches that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. Paediatrician is a key person who manages the health of children, including physical, behavioural and mental health issues. They are trained professionals to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases. They are necessary in every stage of child’s development. Paediatricians focus on babies, children, adolescents and young adults from birth to age 21 years to reduce infant and child mortality, to control infectious disease, to foster healthy lifestyles, to ease the difficulties of children and adolescents with chronic conditions. Children represent the future and ensuring their healthy growth and development ought to be a prime concern of all societies. New-borns are particularly vulnerable and children are vulnerable to malnutrition and infectious diseases, many of which can be effectively prevented or treated by our Paediatricians.
Clinical research enables women to mitigate the discomforts and helps to live their life to the fullest.
Advancement in child health research empowers to treat the children with chronic and traumatic illnesses, facilitating to lead a healthy life.

Child sexual abuse is a growing public health problem. Children with sexual abuse experience fear, agony, pain, shame, helplessness and loss of dignity. The known magnitude of child sexual abuse is only like the tip of an ice berg and much of it is not reported. The management of abused children is challenging and evolving in the country.

Penetrating abdominal trauma typically involves the violation of the abdominal cavity by gunshot wound (GSW) or stab wound (SW). The surgical complications of ascaris lumbricoides have been well documented, however very few studies have tried to elucidate the impact of ascariasis in patients with penetrating abdominal injury.

Mucinous cystadenoma (MC) of the ovary by definition is a unilateral, multilocular cystic and benign epithelial tumor. We report here a successful surgical management of a large mucinous cystadenoma misdiagnosed as a large uterine fibroid first in a pregnant woman. [...] READ MORE
The discovery of cell free fetal DNA (cffDNA) in the maternal circulation have opened up new possibilities for noninvasive prenatal diagnosis (NIPD) more than one decade. Analysis of cffDNA from maternal plasma by PCR based technologies and high resolution melting analysis (HRM) offers great potential screening single gene disorders for NIPD. The aim of our study is to screen the paternal alleles derived from father in cffDNA for the risk of alpha and beta thalassemias using HRM assay using cffD [...] READ MORE
