      Abstract: Abstrak
      Jumlah perokok di Indonesia makin meningkat setiap tahunnya hingga mencapai hampir 40% dari total penduduk. Terapi antioksidan dapat menurunkan radikal bebas akibat asap rokok yang dapat menyebabkan kerusakan dan kematian sel dalam tubuh. Antioksidan superoxide dismutase ekstrak melon dengan kombinasi gliadin berpotensi menurunkan radikal bebas dengan menurunkan malondialdehyde (MDA) dalam darah. Penelitian ini bertujuan mengetahui efektivitas suplemen superoxide dismutase-gliadin (SOD-gliadin) dalam menurunkan kadar MDA akibat paparan asap rokok terhadap tikus Wistar. Penelitian menggunakan metode ekperimental dengan post-test control group design di Laboratorium Fakultas Kedokteran, Universitas Airlangga. Pemberian suplemen SOD-gliadin dengan paparan asap rokok dua batang per hari dilakukan selama 28 hari (5 April 2016 sampai 12 Mei 2016) dengan menggunakan kelompok kontrol negatif, kelompok kontrol positif, dan tiga kelompok perlakuan dengan dosis ekstrak melon yang berbeda. Selanjutnya, pengukuran kadar MDA dilakukan dengan mengambil serum darah pada semua kelompok. Hasil penelitian, suplemen SOD-gliadin berpengaruh terhadap penurunan kadar MDA serum (ANOVA, p=0,000). Uji least significant difference (LSD) menunjukkan kelima kelompok memberikan hasil yang signifikan terhadap penurunan kadar MDA pada tikus Wistar yang terpapar asap rokok (p<0,05). Penurunan kadar MDA terendah terjadi pada dosis ketiga dibanding dengan dosis SOD-gliadin lainnya. Simpulan, pemberian suplemen SOD-gliadin dapat mengurangi radikal bebas akibat paparan asap rokok.
      The number of smokers in Indonesia was increasing every year to reach nearly 40% of the total population. Antioxidants superoxide dismutase of melon extract able to reduce free radicals in the body. The decrease of free radicals in the body can be measured from malondialdehyde (MDA) levels in the blood. This research aims to determine the effectiveness of melon extract for lowering malondyaldehyde level of cigarette smoke exposure on Wistar rats. Research using experimental methods with posttest control group design in Laboratory Medical Faculty, Airlangga University.

      Abstract: Abstrak
      PIDI merupakan tahap pelatihan keprofesian praregistrasi berbasis kompetensi pelayanan primer guna memahirkan kompetensi yang telah dicapai setelah memperoleh kualifikasi sebagai dokter melalui pendidikan kedokteran dasar. PIDI dilaksanakan di fasilitas pelayanan kesehatan yang menjadi wahana internship. Telah dilakukan penelitian dengan desain potong lintang untuk memperoleh gambaran pelaksanaan program dan penilaian kompetensi peserta internship tahun 2013. Populasi penelitian adalah peserta internship periode Maret­–Mei 2012. Sampel penelitian adalah peserta internship dari 9 FK di 9 kabupaten/kota di 9 provinsi, dipilih melalui multistage sampling dengan mempertimbangkan status akreditasi asal FK peserta internship, kepemilikan FK, wilayah penempatan, dan frekuensi keterlibatan wahana internship. Pengumpulan data dilakukan melalui kelompok diskusi terfokus, wawancara, observasi, dan telaah dokumen. Terjadi peningkatan pemahiran, pemandirian, dan profesionalisme pada 7 area kompetensi inti dokter melalui proses internship 75–98,3%. Hal ini menunjukkan bahwa PIDI diperlukan dalam proses pemahiran, pemandirian, dan peningkatan profesionalisme. Proporsi penanggulangan kasus UKP peserta sudah memenuhi target yang ditetapkan. Sebanyak 78% jenis kasus memiliki proporsi penanganan kasus UKP di atas target. Cakupan kegiatan terbesar berada pada penanganan kasus bedah (94,1%). PIDI perlu dilanjutkan karena berdampak meningkatkan luaran profesionalisme dokter dan peningkatan sistem pelayanan kesehatan. Diperlukan peningkatan kualitas luaran Fakultas Kedokteran agar peningkatan pemahiran dan pemandirian serta profesionalisme dapat berjalan secara optimal.
      PIDI is a training in pre-registration phase of competency-based primary care to improve competency gained after doctor qualification from basic medical education. PIDI implemented in health care facilities that called “wahana”. A cross sectional research has been conducted in March–May 2013 to obtain PIDI implementation and assessment of interns’ competency. The population was interns which start their internship in May 2012. Interns from 9 medical faculties from 9 districts/cities in 9 provinces were selected as samples by multistage sampling considering the accreditation of medical faculties where interns finished their study, medical faculties’ ownership (public or private), placement and frequency of site’s involvement on PIDI. Data collected through focus group discussions, interviews, observation, and documents review. Results showed that competency in seven core competencies, autonomy and professionalism have been improved 75–98.3% through PIDI. This shows that PIDI was needed as a competencies, autonomy and professionalism enhancement before a doctor do his/her private practice. The proportion of 2013 interns’ handling on personal health care (UKP) has already meet the target. 78% of UKP’s type of cases have been done by interns. The highest proportion in surgical cases (94.1%). PIDI should be continued because it affects on the improvement of doctors’ professionalism and improved health care system. It is necessary to improve the quality of Medical faculty’s output in order to optimize the improvement on doctors’ competencies, autonomy and professionalism.

      The different types of left ventricular hypertrophy geometry is associated with different risk of cardiovascular disease. Echocardiography is the gold standard for diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy. Electrocardiographic (ECG)left ventricular hypertrophy voltage criteria can distinguish the type of geometry of left ventricular hypertrophy. The purpose of this study to find out the role of various voltage ECG criteria to distinguish the type of geometry of left ventricle hypertrophy. A cross-sectional study doing from June to November 2015 on 100 patients in cardiology clinic and inpatient at Adam Malik Hospital, Medan, through anamnesis, body mass index  measurement, ECG and echocardiography examinations. If the Sokolow-Lyon ECG criteria for left ventricular hypertrophy did not met, normal left ventricular geometry was diagnosed with 60% sensitivity, 72.22% specificity and 71% accuracy. The eccentric left ventricular hypertrophy geometry was diagnosed if Cornel voltage was not fulfilled, with 25% sensitivity, 71.88% specificity and 55% accuracy. The concentric hypertrophy geometry was diagnosed if the RV6/V5 ratio >1, with 55.56% sensitivity, 56.36% specificity and 56% accuracy. If the RV6/V5 ratio >1 are not met, concentric hypertrophic remodeling geometry was diagnosed with a sensitivity of 55.56%, a specificity of 49.45% and an accuracy of 50%. This study also found the sensitivity and specificity for left ventricular hypertrophy in echocardiography of Sokolow-Lyon criteria were 72.22% and 60.00%, the Cornel voltage criteria with a sensitivity of 77.78% and a specificity of 70.00%, and RV6/V5 ratio criteria with a sensitivity of 51.11% and a specificity of 70.00%. The overall sensitivity and specificity was low. In conclusion, various criteria of  ECG left ventricular geometry voltage can differentiate left ventricular hypertrophy geometry types. Sokolow-Lyon and Cornell voltage criteria are more sensitive and specific than the RV6/V5 ratio.

           Roxb.) terhadap Larva Nyamuk Culex sp

    • Authors: Regina Putri, Teresa Liliana Wargasetia, Susy Tjahjani
      Pages: 103 - 107
      Abstract: Abstrak
      Salah satu cara pemberantasan nyamuk Culex yang merupakan vektor beberapa penyakit antara lain filariasis, Japanese encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, dan West Nile virus ialah dengan larvasida. Larvasida berbahan kimia (temephos) memiliki efek samping berbahaya bagi kesehatan dan lingkungan. Oleh sebab itu, dilakukan penelitian penggunaan daun pandan wangi (Pandanus amaryllifolius Roxb.) sebagai larvasida alami. Tujuan penelitian mengetahui apakah ekstrak etanol daun pandan wangi memiliki efek larvasida alami terhadap larva Culex sp. Penelitian dilakukan di Fakultas Kedokteran, Universitas Kristen Maranatha pada Februari–Juli 2016. Desain penelitian bersifat eksperimental laboratorik dengan metode rancangan acak lengkap. Efek larvasida ekstrak daun pandan wangi (EDPW) diuji terhadap 6 kelompok perlakuan (n=30, r=4) larva Culex sp. Kelompok I (EDPW 4%), II (EDPW 2%), III (EDPW 1%), IV (EDPW 0,5%), V (temephos sebagai kontrol positif), dan VI (akuades sebagai kontrol negatif). Data yang diambil ialah jumlah larva mati setelah pemberian bahan uji selama 24 jam. Analisis data dengan ANAVA dan uji Tukey HSD dengan nilai α=0,01. Hasil penelitian berupa persentase larva mati pada kelompok I (96,67%), II (79,17%), III (50%), dan IV (17,5%) menunjukkan perbedaan yang signifikan (p≤0,01) terhadap kelompok VI (1,67%). Tidak terdapat perbedaan signifikan (p>0,01) antara kelompok I dan V (100%). Simpulan, EDPW berefek sebagai larvasida terhadap larva nyamuk Culex sp dan EDPW 4% memiliki potensi setara dengan temephos.
      One way to eradicate Culex mosquitoes that are vector for several diseases such as filariasis, Japanese encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, and West Nile virus is with larvicide. Larvicide made from chemical (temephos) have harmful side effects to health and environment. Therefore research of fragnant pandan leaves (Pandanus amaryllifolius Roxb.) as natural larvicide was conducted. This study aims to find out whether fragnant pandan leaves ethanol extract has natural larvicide effect against Culex sp larvae. The study was conducted at Faculty of Medicine, Maranatha Christian University in February to July 2016. This study design was laboratoric experimental with complete randomized design. Larvicidal effect of fragnant pandan leaves extract (FPLE) was tested against 6 groups (n=30, r=4) Culex larvae. Group I (FPLE 4%), II (FPLE 2%), III (FPLE 1%), IV (0,5%), V (temephos as a positive control), and VI (aquadest as a negative control). The taken data was the number of larvae that died after administration of the substance for 24 hours. Data was analyzed by ANOVA and Tukey HSD test using α=0,01. The results of the study were the percentage of dead larvae in group I (96,67%), II (79,17%), III (50%), and IV (17,5%) showed a significant difference (p≤0,01) to group VI (1,67%). There were no significant difference (p>0,01) between group I and group V (100%). The conclusion of this study is there was an effect of FPLE as larvicide against Culex mosquito larvae and FPLE 4% had equivalent potential to temephos.

      Pages: 117 - 122
      Abstract: AbstrakKanker termasuk kelompok penyakit tidak menular (non-communicable diseases atau NCD) dan penyebab kematian terbesar di dunia. Salah satu faktor yang memengaruhi perkembangan kanker adalah reseptor NKG2D (natural-killer group 2, member D) merupakan kompleks reseptor yang mengaktivasi sel NK dan penting dalam immunosurveilance kanker. Brokoli, sayuran golongan Cruciferae, mengandung glukosinolat dan isotiosianat. Glukosinolat akan dihidrolisis oleh mirosinase (thioglucodase β) dan membentuk senyawa isotiosianat. Senyawa isotiosianat penting untuk mencegah kanker adalah senyawa sulforafan. Tujuan penelitian adalah menilai efek brokoli dalam meningkatkan ekspresi reseptor NKG2D dalam rangka memperbaiki aktivitas sel NK untuk mencegah kanker. Penelitian ini bersifat prospektif eksperimental laboratorium bersifat komparatif yang dilakukan di Laboratorium Aretha Medika Utama pada Februari–Juli 2016. Brokoli di-freeze dryer dan dibuat tepung dua konsentrasi, yaitu 50 μg/mL dan 25 μg/mL. Penelitian diawali dengan perbanyakan sel NK (cell line), kemudian dilanjutkan dengan perlakuan selama 24 jam dan penilaian ekspresi gen NKG2D menggunakan qPCR. Data penelitian ekspresi gen NKG2D dihitung dengan rumus Livak dan dianalisis menggunakan uji ANOVA satu arah dan uji lanjutan Tukey (SPSS 16). Pemberian brokoli konsentrasi 50 μg/mL dan 25 μg/mL meningkatkan level ekspresi gen NKG2D yang mengindikasikan peningkatan aktivitas sel-sel NK. Simpulan penelitian ini adalah pemberian brokoli meningkatkan aktivitas sel-sel NK dalam mencegah dan melawan sel-sel kanker. Cancer is the non-communicable diseases (NCD) and the biggest cause of death in the world. One of the factors that affect cancer development is NKG2D receptors (natural-killer group 2, member D) is a receptor complex that activates NK cells and is important in cancer immunosurveilance. Broccoli, Cruciferae vegetable, contains glucosinolate and isothiocyanate. Glucosinolate will be hydrolysed by the mirosinase (thioglucodase β) and form the isothiocyanate compound. Isothiocyanate compounds essential to prevent cancer are sulforafan compounds. The objective of the study was to assess the effect of broccoli in enhancing NKG2D receptor expression in order to improve NK cell activity to prevent cancer. This experimental study is a comparative true experimental laboratory, conducted in the Aretha Medika Utama in February to July 2016. Broccoli is freeze dryer and made two concentrations of flour, 50 μg/mL and 25 μg/mL. The study begins with multiplication of NK cells (cell line), then continued with treatment for 24 hours and assessment of NKG2D gene expression using qPCR. NKG2D gene expression research data was calculated by Livak formula and analyzed using one-way ANOVA test and Tukey's advanced test (SPSS 16). The administration of broccoli concentrations of 50 μg/mL and 25 μg/mL increased the level of NKG2D gene expression, indicating an increase in NK cell activity. The conclusion of this study is the provision of broccoli increases the activity of NK cells in preventing and fighting cancer cells.

  • Kesiapan Masyarakat dalam Melaksanakan dan Memanfaatkan Posyandu Penyakit
           Tidak Menular di Desa Cilayung dan Cipacing, Kecamatan Jatinangor

    • Authors: Yulia Sofiatin, Rully M.A. Roesli
      Pages: 123 - 131
      Abstract: Abstrak
      Pengendalian hipertensi dan penyakit tidak menular (PTM) memerlukan kerja sama pasien karena pilar utama pengendalian PTM adalah pengetahuan penderita dan kepatuhan dalam menjalankan upaya pengendaliannya. Sampai saat ini pemberian edukasi di sarana kesehatan tidak efektif sehingga diperlukan upaya lain seperti kelompok dukungan pasien dan peningkatan kemampuan masyarakat. Pos pelayanan terpadu (posyandu) PTM merupakan salah satu alternatif. Penelitian ini bertujuan menggali kesiapan kader posyandu dan pasien hipertensi mengenai kemungkinan pelaksanaan posyandu khusus PTM. Telah dilakukan diskusi kelompok terarah (DKT) terhadap dua kelompok (kader dan penderita) di Desa Cilayung dan Cipacing serta 1 (satu) sesi wawancara mendalam terhadap Kepala Puskesmas Kecamatan Jatinangor, Sumedang pada Maret–April 2017 dengan tingkat partisipasi peserta cukup baik. Keempat kelompok menyatakan kebutuhan terhadap posyandu PTM dengan aktivitas selain pemantauan tekanan darah dan berat badan yang dibutuhkan adalah penyuluhan mengenai perbaikan gaya hidup dan kepatuhan berobat. Kader Desa Cipacing siap melaksanakan penyuluhan jika telah mendapat pelatihan, tetapi kader Desa Cilayung menginginkan penyuluh dari luar lingkungan mereka. Terdapat kebutuhan kemudahan mendapatkan obat karena pengambilan obat di puskesmas dirasakan membutuhkan biaya transportasi yang cukup tinggi. Dapat disimpulkan bahwa masyarakat dan kader merasakan kebutuhan terhadap posyandu PTM, tetapi kesiapan mereka berbeda-beda.
      The main pilars of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) management are patient’s awareness, knowledge and compliance. At present, education by health provider in health facilities has been proven to be not effective that other measures such as patient support group and community empowerement are needed. The options is through integrated health post (posyandu) for NCD. The aim of this research was to explore the readiness of the community to run and utilize such post. Four sessions of focus group discussions with two groups of health cadres and two groups of people with high blood pressure in Cilayung and Cipacing villages and 1 (one) session of indepth interview towards the Head of Public Health Center (Puskesmas) at Jatinangor, Sumedang, Indonesia were held on March–April 2017 with high participations. Each group expresses the needs of patient support group and community empowerement through regular integrated health post for NCDs. Schedulled screening and mass education especially for life style modification and drug used are urgent. Health cadres of urban community are ready to lead the activities, while those from rural area ask for formal educators. Drug dispensing at public health center is favourable due to expensive transportation to primary health care. In conclusion, communities in Jatinangor need integrated health post for NCD to assist them to manage their blood pressure and other NCDs although their readinesses were vary.
