Abstract : The physical activity among older adults has been associated with reduction of risk from all- cause mortality and improve physical, mental, and social well-being. The objectives were to determine the physical activity status among older adults in Samarahan Division, Sarawak and its association with socio - demographic characteristics and nutritional status. A cross-sectional study was carried out on 199 older Socio-demographic characteristics was taken via questionnaire, nutritional status (height, weight, and waist circumference) and body composition (body fat %, skeletal muscle % and visceral fat %) of the older adults was measured using anthropometric measurement, body composition scan and physical activity using pedometer. Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS version 26. The proportion of physically active among older adults was 12.6% and mean daily steps are 3946 steps (SD = 1669 steps). Multiple linear regression revealed that age, BMI, and sex were significant associated with physical activity. Lack of physical activity among older adults remain a problem. Understanding these predictors related to physical activity is important for designing intervention program.

Abstract : Sequencing is the process of establishing good relations between an inheritance. The general purpose of sequence similarity analysis is to present the possibilities of homology sequence: the probability that these sequences come from the same ancestors. The same signal is intended to measure the rate of occurrence between nucleotide numbers or protein ranges. There are many uses for measuring single sequences. Bioinformatics has been an emerging field of research for the past three decades. The ultimate goal of bioinformatics was to maintain and manage biological data, and to develop and analyze computer tools to increase their understanding. The size of the data accumulated under various sequence projects is increasing exponentially, which brings with it the difficulties of testing methods. To reduce the gap between recently followed proteins and proteins with known functions, many calculation methods involving protein analysis and integration of algorithms were proposed in the past. Analysis of the protein sequence of protein sequences in existing families helps to predict the formation and function of a large number of newly discovered proteins. The existing results of protein analysis are unsatisfactory due to the large number of features obtained by various encoding methods. In this exercise, the process of selecting a mathematical­based feature is proposed to reduce the vector size of the extracted element. The proposed method of protein similarity analysis shows significant improvement in terms of comparison metrics: (a). hydrophobicity, (b). normwaalsvolume, (c). polarizability, (d). secondarystruct and (e). solventaccess..

Abstract : In today’s setting, the proper execution of measurements and compliance of various Point of care investigations, with both internal and external quality control is a great challenge. The aim of this study is to compare the values of a highly critical parameter Creatinine (Cr) determined with a point of care device (POC) vs the central laboratory analyser (ZL) in a highly vulnerable setting of an emergency department in a tertiary care hospital and to assess the devices performance. It’s a prospective observational study done among 500 patients of all age group, who presented to emergency department and whose Creatinine was simultaneously determined using POC and ZL. On comparison between creatinine determined using POC and ZL, overall there is good correlation (r = 0.934, p<0.001) & a positive linear correlation [ICC=0.966, 95% confidence interval = (0.959, 0.971)]). Additionally, elevated creatinine values in males (Cr >1.2 mg/dl) and females (Cr >1.1) were analysed individually & in a group between POC-Cr and ZL-Cr, which showed a good agreement in diagnosis of kidney injury using POC. -Sub collective groups i.e. paediatric patients (age <18), geriatric patients (age > 85 years) & gender based analysis were also done and the results showed a highly significant correlation between POC-Cr and ZL-CR. Creatinine determined using POC devices has good correlation with central laboratory value with both internal and external quality control..

Abstract : Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is defined as practice and products that can be used as alternative and part of conventional medicine. This study was conducted to identify the types of CAM that are used by Jordanian cancer patients, identify the factors associated with using CAM among Jordanian cancer patients and measure Health-related Quality of Life (HRQOL) among Jordanian cancer patients using CAM. A quantitative, cross-sectional design with convenience sampling approach was used. 201 participants completed the study survey with response rate 92 %. Majority of the participants used CAM during their illness period (145, 72.2%). The results from the current study showed that the majority of the participants used diet and nutritional supplements to minimize the side effects of traditional chemotherapy treatments (140, 69.6%), followed by to control disease, to decrease psychological pressure and distress and because of dissatisfaction with the conventional medicine (40: 19.9%, 12: 5.9%, 8: 3.9% and 1: 0.05% respectively). The results indicated that the participants had moderate level of QOL and the total of the QOL score mean was 82.72 (SD 11.29). Continuous education about type and actions of CAM is recommended for healthcare workers.

Abstract : Beetroot contains high levels of antioxidants and can trigger vasodilation of blood vessels. Beetroot has an ergogenic effect, so it is widely used to produce high energy. This study aimed to determine the effect of beetroot powder on the improvement of oxidative stress in Wistar rats received high intensity exercise. 30 Wistar rats were randomly divided into 5 groups (n=6), they were control negative (Group I); control positive (Group II); received exercise and 0.36 g/200 g b. wt/day of beetroot powder (Group III); received exercise and 0.72 g/200 g b. wt/day of beetroot powder (Group IV) and received exercise and 1.08 g/200 g b. wt/day of beetroot powder (Group V). The treatment was given 1x/day after exercise for 28 days. MDA levels were measured using ELISA while Hb levels were measured using the Sahli method by taking retroorbital vein blood. The data were analyzed using paired sample t test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). There are differences in MDA and hemoglobin levels before and after the administration of beetroot powder as much as 0.36 g/200 g b. wt/day; 0.72 g/200 g b. wt/day and 1.08 g/200 g b. wt/day in Wistar rats received high intensity exercise (p<0.005). Result of the post hoc test showed differences in MDA and Hb levels between the control and treatment groups. Beetroot powder was effective in improving oxidative stress and hemoglobin levels in Wistar rats received high intensity exercise.
