The foot print of a suspected person is valuable Forensic evidence along with other evidences at the place of crime scene investigation. The foot print can be studied by anatomists, anthropologists, physicians, podiatrists and orthopaedicians. Foot can be studied by foot prints and shoe prints. Present study conducted to ascertain the foot impressions and boot marks as means of identification of individuals, to compare dimensions of foot impression and boot mark on papers and POP casts and to know the value of POP cast footprint. The foot prints are lifted by POP cast from the crime scene. The foot prints of suspects can be taken on soft and hard materials for comparison. The evidence on a hard material is difficult to carry as compared to soft materials however both are equally important. Foot prints are found more common in the rural areas mainly in the fields because of mud. It is difficult to find foot print on the cemented structures in urban areas.

Foetal age estimation is very important. Foetal age can be estimated by variety of parameters such as Femur length, Bi- Parietal diameter, Abdominal circumference, Humerus length and Foetal Kidney length. Previous studies by various authors indicate that 30% of female forget their exact Last Menstrual period (LMP) [1, 2]. If exact LMP is not known then Expected date of delivery was not found. So these types of cases pose a grave challenge for treating doctor. Frequently in the emergency, unregistered antenatal cases come with the history of accident as well as assault with bleeding per vaginum. These types of cases also need treatment or Medical termination under MTP act. So this study was aimed to produce normogram using foetal Kidney length by measuring it sonographically from known registered antenatal cases coming to Gian Sagar. The Normogram was prepared with objective to use it retrospectively when LMP is not known to get foetal age using foetal kidney length. © 2015 JPAFMAT. All rights reserved.

The treatment of oral and periodontal diseases and associated anomalies accounts for a significant proportion of the healthcare burden, with the manifestations of these conditions being functionally and psychologically debilitating. A challenge faced by periodontal therapy is the predictable regeneration of periodontal tissues lost as a consequence of disease. Growth factors are critical to the development, maturation, maintenance and repair of oral tissues as they establish an extra-cellular environment that is conducive to cell and tissue growth. Tissue engineering principles aim to exploit these properties in the development of biomimetic materials that can provide an appropriate microenvironment for tissue development. The aim of this paper is to review emerging periodontal therapies in the areas of materials science, growth factor biology and cell/gene therapy. Various such materials have been formulated into devices that can be used as vehicles for delivery of cells, growth factors and DNA. Different mechanisms of drug delivery are addressed in the context of novel approaches to reconstruct and engineer oral and tooth supporting structure. © Medicina Oral.

The main objective of this study was to identify any advantage of uterine fundal pressure manouvre in vaginal delivery and to evaluate its obstetrical outcomes. The primary aim of decreasing the duration of the second stage of labour could not be substantiated; rather this manouvre itself was associated with risks. Significant findings noted with such practice were one case each of retained placenta and bladder atonicity besides increased evidence of maternal exhaustion in this group and such observations were not observed in the earlier studies.

Age is one of the important parameters for the Identification of an individual whether the individual is alive, dead or human remains. A criminal will tell his age wrong to the investigating agencies to get less punishment from the court. Various government agencies are giving benefits like employment, pension and medical reimbursement according to age of a person. The age plays a vital role in sports competition. A person who's age more than 60 years is a senior citizen. The railways authority gives concession of 40% to male senior citizens and 50% to female senior citizens. The benefits are also on the income tax. Age is also important in onset of various diseases. The sternum can be visualized by radiography for age estimation. The earliest age of fusion of the Xiphisternum with the body of the sternum was 26 years in the males and 26 years in the females also. The earliest age of fusion of the manubrium with the body of the sternum was 29 years in males and 35 years in the females.
