      Pages: 159 - 166
      Abstract: Dismenore merupakan gangguan menstruasi dengan prevalensi terbesar diikuti gejala sindrom premenstruasi yang mencakup gejala fisik dan psikologis. Asupan mikronutrien kalsium dan magnesium dapat membantu mengatasi keluhan ini. Penelitian ini dilakukan untuk mengetahui pengaruh konsumsi suplemen kalsium dan magnesium terhadap dismenore dan gejala sindrom premenstrual pada perempuan berusia 19–23 tahun. Penelitian ini merupakan eksperimental kuasi dengan rancangan pretes dan postes. Penelitian dilakukan di Universitas Kristen Maranatha Bandung pada bulan Juli–Desember 2016. Subjek penelitian adalah 60 orang perempuan berusia 19–23 tahun, dibagi menjadi dua kelompok secara acak untuk pemberian bahan uji kalsium (1.000 mg/hari) atau magnesium (250 mg/hari) yang diberikan mulai hari kedua menstruasi sampai siklus menstruasi yang berikutnya. Kadar kalsium atau magnesium serum diukur dengan metode spektrofotometri. Dismenore diukur dengan skala nyeri visual analog scale (VAS), sedangkan skor sindrom premenstrual diukur dengan shortened premenstrual assessment form sebelum dan sesudah pemberian bahan uji. Konsumsi kalsium menurunkan skor skala VAS rata-rata pada dismenore dari 6,97 menjadi 3,80 (p=0,000) dan skor total gejala sindrom premenstrual rata-rata dari 15,07 menjadi 10,80 (p=0,000). Konsumsi magnesium mengurangi skor skala VAS rata-rata pada dismenore dari 7 menjadi 4 (p=0,000) dan skor total gejala sindrom premenstrual rata-rata dari 12,27 menjadi 9,87 (p=0,001). Simpulan penelitian ini adalah konsumsi suplemen kalsium atau magnesium mengurangi keluhan dismenore dan gejala sindrom premenstrual pada perempuan usia 19–23 tahun.
      EFFECT OF CALCIUM AND MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS ON PRIMARY DYSMENORRHEA AND PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME IN 19–23 YEARS OLD WOMENDysmenorrhea is a menstrual disorder with the greatest prevalence followed by premenstrual syndrome that includes physical and psychological symptoms. Micronutrients intake of calcium and magnesium can help overcome these complaints. This research was conducted to find out the effect of calcium and magnesium supplements consumption on dysmenorrhea and premenstrual syndrome symptoms in 19–23 years old women. This was quasi experimental research with pre- and post-test design. The research was conducted in Maranatha Christian University Bandung from July to December 2016. The subjects of research were 60 women aged 19–23 years old, divided into two groups randomly. One group given calcium (1,000 mg/day) or magnesium (250 mg/day), which was given at the second day of menstruation until the next menstrual cycle. Serum levels of calcium or magnesium were measured with spectrophotometry method. Dysmenorrhea was measured with visual analog scale (VAS), whereas score of premenstrual syndrome was measured with shortened premenstrual assessment form, before and after treatment. The consumption of calcium lowers the VAS score average on dysmenorrhea from 6.97 to 3.80 (p=0.000) and the mean score of premenstrual syndrome from 15.07 to 10.80 (p=0.000). Consumption of magnesium reduces the VAS score average on dysmenorrhea from 7 to 4 (p=0.000) and the mean score of premenstrual syndrome from 12.27 to 9.87 (p=0.001). In conclusion, consumption of calcium or magnesium supplements reduce dysmenorrhea and premenstrual syndrome in women aged 19–23 years old.

Saat ini dikembangkan teknik USG menggunakan parameter indeks hepatorenal sonografi yang dihitung dengan program software ImageJ dan digunakan untuk memprediksi derajat perlemakan hati. Penelitian ini bertujuan mengetahui hubungan antara stadium hipertensi dan derajat perlemakan hati nonalkoholik menggunakan indeks hepatorenal sonografi. Penelitian menggunakan studi observasional analitik dengan rancangan cross sectional, pengambilan sampel dilakukan secara consecutive admission. Penelitian dilaksanakan di Bagian Radiologi RSUP Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung periode Juni–Agustus 2016. Subjek penelitian 50 orang, laki-laki 22 orang, perempuan 28 orang, usia termuda 25 tahun, dan tertua 77 tahun. Hasil penelitian melalui uji statistik chi-square menunjukkan derajat perlemakan hati nonalkoholik ringan lebih banyak pada prehipertensi (9 dari 16), derajat sedang pada hipertensi stadium I (10 dari 19), dan derajat berat pada hipertensi stadium II (8 dari 15) dengan p<0,001. Perlemakan hati nonalkoholik derajat sedang dan berat lebih sering ditemukan pada perempuan dengan hipertensi (p=0,005) Simpulan, terdapat hubungan antara stadium hipertensi dan derajat perlemakan hati nonalkoholik menggunakan indeks hepatorenal sonografi.
      THE ASSOCIATION OF HYPERTENSION STAGE AND NON-ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER DEGREE USING HEPATORENAL SONOGRAPHY INDEXHypertension is considered as a precursor to the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Ultrasonography techniques have been developed using sonography hepatorenal index parameter calculated by ImageJ, that can predict the degree of NAFLD. This study aim to determine the relationship between hypertension stage and the degree of NAFLD using sonography hepatorenal index. The research is an observational using cross sectional methods, with consecutive admission sampling method. The study was performed at Dr. Hasan Sadikin Hospital Bandung from June to August 2016. A total of 50 subjects, 22 men and 28 women, with the youngest 25 and the oldest 77 years old participated. Results  indicated that the mild degree of NAFLD were higher on prehypertension (9 of 16), the moderate degree on stage I hypertension (10 of 19), while the severe degree found on stage II hypertension (8 of 15), with p<0.001. Moderate and severe degree of NAFLD in hypertensive patient is more common in women (p=0.005). In conclusion, there was a relationship between hypertension stage and the degree of NAFLD.

    • Authors: Rizana Fajrunni'mah, Diah Lestari, Angki Purwanti
      Pages: 174 - 181
      Abstract: Diabetes melitus (DM) adalah sekelompok gangguan metabolisme bersifat kronik yang ditandai peningkatan kadar glukosa darah serta gangguan metabolisme karbohidrat, lemak, dan protein. Setiap tahun lebih dari empat juta orang meninggal akibat DM, dan jutaan orang mengalami efek buruk atau kondisi yang mengancam jiwa seperti serangan jantung, strok, gagal ginjal, kebutaan, dan amputasi. Kemampuan individu mengelola kehidupan sehari-hari serta mengendalikan dan mengurangi dampak penyakit yang dideritanya dikenal dengan self-management, yaitu mengikuti pola makan sehat, meningkatkan kegiatan jasmani, menggunakan obat DM dan obat pada keadaan khusus secara aman dan teratur, melakukan pemantauan kadar gula darah, serta perawatan kaki secara berkala. Beberapa penelitian melaporkan bahwa masih sedikit penderita DM melakukan pemantauan gula darah dengan baik. Penelitian ini bertujuan memperoleh pemahaman mendalam tentang pengalaman penderita DM dalam pemeriksaan kadar glukosa darah dengan menggunakan metode penelitian kualitatif pendekatan fenomenologi. Penelitian dilaksanakan pada bulan Juli–September 2016 di wilayah kerja Puskesmas Jatiwarna, Bekasi. Hasil analisis data teridentifikasi faktor pendukung pemeriksaan glukosa darah adalah faktor psikologis, sosial, edukasi, ekonomi, dan akses. Faktor penghambatnya adalah faktor psikologis, sosial, edukasi, penggunaan obat, sikap terhadap penyakit, dan persepsi terhadap jaminan kesehatan. Hasil penelitian diharapkan dapat menjadi masukan dalam meningkatkan kualitas edukasi dan pendampingan tenaga kesehatan kepada pasien sehingga pasien terbantu meningkatkan adaptasi dan kemampuannya memantau glukosa darah secara mandiri.
      SUPPORTING AND INHIBITING FACTORS OF DIABETES MELLITUS PATIENTS IN PERFORMING BLOOD GLUCOSE EXAMINATIONDiabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder marked by an increase in blood glucose levels and impaired metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Every year more than four million people die because diabetes and millions of people experience the ill effects of diabetes or life-threatening conditions such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, and amputation. The individual's ability to manage life, control and reduce the impact of the disease known as self-management is to follow a healthy diet, increasing physical activity, using the drug safely and regularly, monitoring blood sugar levels as well as maintenance feet regularly. Several studies reported only small number of DM patients examined blood glucose levels routinely. This study aim to gain a thorough understanding of individual experience with DM in examining blood glucose levels. This study used qualitative research with a phenomenological approach from July to September 2016 at Jatiwarna, Bekasi. The results identified factors supporting blood glucose examination were: psychological factors, social, educational, economic, and access to health care. The inhibiting factors were psychological factors, social, educational, drug use, attitudes toward the disease, and perceptions of health insurance. The results expected to improve the quality of education and mentoring for health workers. It will help patients improving the adaptability and the ability to blood glucose self-monitoring.

           Antikanker Brusein-A

    • Authors: Muhartono Muhartono, Subeki Subeki
      Pages: 189 - 193
      Abstract: Brusein-A diduga menyebabkan apoptosis. Salah satu protein yang berperan dalam proses apoptosis adalah caspase-3. Penelitian ini bertujuan mengetahui aktivitas antikanker brusein-A terhadap ekspresi caspase-3 pada kanker payudara. Penelitian menggunakan rancang acak lengkap. Sebanyak 27 ekor tikus betina berumur 12 minggu diberi dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA) 20 mg/kgBB per oral selama 3 minggu sampai terbentuk kanker payudara. Selanjutnya, dibagi dalam 9 kelompok perlakuan brusein-A, yaitu 0; 2,5; 5; 7,5; 10; 12,5; 15; 17,5; dan 20 mg/L selama 28 hari. Parameter yang diukur adalah ekspresi caspase-3 yang dinilai berdasar atas persentase sitoplasma yang berwarna coklat. Penelitian ini dilakukan di Laboratorium Patologi-Anatomi dan Laboratorium Biokimia, Pusat Penelitian Ilmu Pengetahuan dan Teknologi (Puspiptek) Serpong tahun 2015–2016. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan ekspresi caspase-3 rata-rata pada dosis 0 mg/L sebesar 4%, 2,5 mg/L sebesar 15,3%, 5 mg/L sebesar 21%, 7,5 mg/L sebesar 25%, 10 mg/L sebesar 41%, 12,5 mg/L sebesar 65%, 15 mg/L sebesar 75,3%, 17,5 mg/L sebesar 84%, dan 20 mg/L sebesar 94,7%. Hasil uji one way ANOVA menunjukkan perbedaan ekspresi caspase-3 rata-rata yang signifikan antarkelompok perlakuan (p=0,0001). Uji korelasi Spearman menunjukkan hubungan yang sangat erat dan positif antara dosis brusein-A dan ekspresi caspase-3 (r=0,994). Simpulan, brusein-A meningkatkan ekpresi caspase-3 pada kanker payudara tikus yang diinduksi DMBA.
      CASPASE-3 EXPRESSION ON BREAST CANCER RATS AFTER BRUSEIN-A ADMINISTRATIONBrusein-A is thought to cause apoptosis. Caspase-3 is a protein that plays a role in the process of apoptosis. This study aims to determine anticancer activity of brusein-A on the expression of caspase-3 in breast cancer. This study uses a completely randomized control design. A total of 27 female rats, 12 week aged, were given 20 mg dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA)/kgBW peroral for 3 weeks until they had breast cancer. They divided into 9 treatment group of brusein A, that were 0, 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 17.5, and 20 mg/L for 28 days. Parameter measured were caspase-3 expression, assessed on the percentage of brown cytoplasm. This research was conducted in Pathology-Anatomy Laboratory and Biochemistry Laboratory, Research Center for Science and Technology (Puspiptek) Serpong in 2015–2016. The results showed caspase expression rate of 4%, 15.3%, 21%, 25%, 41%, 65%, 75.3%, 84%, and 94.7% on the dosage of , 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 17.5, and 20 mg/L respectively. The one way ANOVA test results showed significant difference of caspase-3 expression between treatment group (p=0.0001). Spearman's rank correlation test showed that a very close and positive relationship between brusein-A dose and caspase-3 expression (r=0.994). In conclusion, brusein-A increased caspase-3 expression in DMBA induced breast cancer rats.

      Abstract: Salah satu perilaku berisiko yang memiliki prevalensi tinggi di usia remaja adalah merokok, sedangkan seseorang yang merokok pada usia lebih muda akan lebih sulit berhenti dibanding dengan yang mulai merokok pada usia lebih tua. Tujuan penelitian ini mengidentifikasi faktor-faktor yang berhubungan dengan perilaku merokok pada remaja. Penelitian yang dilakukan merupakan penelitian deskriptif dengan desain cross-sectional. Penelitian dilakukan di Kampung Bojong Rawalele, Pondok Gede, Bekasi, Jawa Barat periode Januari–Februari 2017. Populasi penelitian adalah remaja di kampung tersebut. Subjek penelitian adalah individu usia 10–19 tahun. Sampel yang diambil sebanyak 94 responden dengan teknik snowball sampling. Remaja yang terlibat berpendidikan belum tamat SD sampai sudah tamat SMA. Di antara 19 remaja perokok (20%), merokok rata-rata sebanyak 5–6 batang per hari dan sudah merokok rata-rata selama 2–3 tahun. Sebagian besar (95%) perokok tersebut ingin berhenti merokok. Analisis bivariat menunjukkan bahwa jenis kelamin, usia, pengalaman, pengetahuan, dan sikap berhubungan signifikan dengan perilaku merokok (p<0,05). Pendidikan tidak berhubungan dengan perilaku merokok (p≥0,05). Simpulan, prediktor perilaku merokok pada remaja di Kampung Bojong Rawalele adalah jenis kelamin, usia, pengalaman, pengetahuan, dan sikap. Disarankan kepada orangtua maupun sekolah untuk memperhatikan kelompok berisiko merokok pada remaja.

      Abstract: Penyakit kuning akut dapat disebabkan oleh infeksi virus hepatitis A, B, C, dan E dengan Hepatitis A dan E sebagai penyebab utama wabah. Gejala kuning pada kasus infeksi virus Hepatitis A (HAV) muncul pada 2−6 minggu setelah pasien terinfeksi. Umumnya infeksi HAV tidak akan berkembang menjadi kronis, namun HAV dapat menyebabkan wabah. Pada tahun 2013 terjadi peningkatan penyakit kuning akut pada empat provinsi, yaitu Banten, Kepulauan Riau, Kalimantan Barat, dan Kalimantan Selatan. Penelitian ini bertujuan mengetahui penyebab penyakit kuning akut yang terjadi pada kejadian luar biasa di empat provinsi tersebut. Pengumpulan data dilakukan dari merebaknya kasus penyakit kuning akut selama tahun 2013 di empat provinsi di Indonesia. Spesimen dikumpulkan dan dikirim ke laboratorium Virologi di Pusat Penelitian dan Pengembangan Biomedis dan Teknologi Dasar Kesehatan (Puslitbang BTDK), Badan Penelitian dan Pengembangan Kesehatan, Kementerian Kesehatan RI. Spesimen diuji antibodi IgM HAV menggunakan metode enzyme immunoassay. Puslitbang BTDK menerima 102 spesimen dari tujuh kali laporan peningkatan kasus di empat provinsi, yaitu Banten, Kalimantan Selatan, Kalimantan Barat, dan Kepulauan Riau. Dari keseluruhan 102 spesimen, 38 spesimen (37%) positif IgM HAV, meliputi Banten 3 (2,9%), Kalimantan Selatan 7 (6,9%), Kepulauan Riau 4 (3,9%), dan Kalimantan Barat 24 (23,5%). Lebih banyak kasus perempuan dibanding dengan laki-laki dan dominan pada usia dewasa. Infeksi HAV adalah penyebab sindrom penyakit kuning akut di empat provinsi di Indonesia.
      HEPATITIS A VIRUS IDENTIFICATION ON ACUTE JAUNDICE SYNDROME IN SOME PROVINCES IN INDONESIA IN 2013Acute jaundice can be caused by hepatitis A, B, C and E virus. Hepatitis A and E are often as the main cause of the jaundice outbreak. The symptoms of Hepatitis A virus infection (HAV) appear  2−6 weeks after the patient infected. Generally HAV infection will not develop into chronic stages, but HAV can cause an outbreak. In 2013 there was an increase of acute jaudice syndrome in four provinces that are Banten, Riau Islands, West Kalimantan and South Kalimantan. The study aims to determine the cause of acute jaundice syndrome that occurs in extraordinary events in the four provinces. Data collection was conducted from outbreaks of acute cases of jaundice during 2013 in four provinces in Indonesia. Specimens were collected and sent to the Virology Laboratory at the Center for Research and Development of Biomedical and Basic Health Technology (Puslitbang BTDK), National Institute of Health Research and Development, Ministry of Health. The specimens tested using IgM HAV antibody enzyme immunoassay method. Puslitbang BTDK received 102 specimens from seven extraordinary reports in four provinces namely Banten, South Kalimantan, West Kalimantan and Riau Islands. From all 102 specimens, 38 specimens (37%) were positive IgM HAV, including Banten 3 (2.9%), South Kalimantan 7 (6.9%), Riau Islands 4 (3.9%) and West Kalimantan 24 (23.5%). Female cases were more dominant than males. HAV infection is the cause of acute jaundice syndrome in four provinces in Indonesia.

      Abstract: Sumedang regency reported being one of dengue endemic areas in West Java. The number of dengue fever patients in Sumedang District General Hospital increased in the last quarter of 2015. Universitas Padjadjaran (Unpad) is one of most significant areas in Jatinangor Sumedang where many people are doing their activity day and night. The purpose of the study was to identify what types of mosquito genera exist in Unpad campus according to the time and location. A field survey was conducted at 22 locations in Unpad campus using modified electric light trap placed indoor and outdoor at each site from September to November 2016. The modified electrical trap was turned on for 24 hours, and samples collected every 12 hours. Mosquitoes trapped were put into the plastic cup, labeled according to time collected, and brought to Parasitology Laboratory of Unpad for identification. The study result identified four types of mosquito genera which were Culex spp. (405), Armigeres spp. (70), Aedes spp. (33), and Anopheles spp. (10). Prevention toward potential breeding sites and protection using window net should be considered to reduce the risk of vector-borne diseases. In conclusion, Aedes spp. is the most active mosquito during the day while Culex spp. and Armigeres spp. are the most active mosquito during the night.
      SURVEI NYAMUK DI KAWASAN KAMPUS UNIVERSITAS PADJADJARAN JATINANGOR PADA BULAN SEPTEMBER–NOVEMBER 2016Kabupaten Sumedang dilaporkan sebagai salah satu daerah endemik demam berdarah di Jawa Barat. Jumlah pasien demam berdarah yang datang ke Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah Sumedang meningkat dalam tiga bulan terakhir pada tahun 2015. Universitas Padjadjaran (Unpad) merupakan salah satu wilayah yang terluas di Jatinangor Sumedang sebagai tempat banyak orang melakukan aktivitas pada siang dan malam hari. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah mengidentifikasi jenis genera nyamuk yang ada di kampus Unpad Jatinangor berdasar atas waktu dan lokasi. Survei lapangan dilakukan pada 22 lokasi di kampus Unpad Jatinangor pada bulan September–November 2016 menggunakan perangkap nyamuk cahaya yang dimodifikasi. Perangkap nyamuk ditempatkan di dalam dan luar ruangan untuk setiap lokasi. Perangkap nyamuk dipasang selama 24 jam, kemudian nyamuk dikumpulkan setiap 12 jam. Nyamuk yang terperangkap dikumpulkan dan dimasukkan ke dalam cangkir plastik, diberi label sesuai dengan waktu pengambilan, kemudian dibawa ke Laboratorium Parasitologi Unpad untuk diidentifikasi. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan 4 genera nyamuk ditemukan di kampus Unpad Jatinangor, yaitu Culex spp. (405), Armigeres spp. (70), Aedes spp. (33), dan Anopheles spp. (10). Pencegahan pada tempat yang berpotensi menjadi sarang nyamuk dan perlindungan menggunakan kawat nyamuk pada jendela harus dipertimbangkan untuk menurunkan risiko penyakit tular vektor. Simpulan penelitian ini, Aedes spp. merupakan nyamuk yang paling aktif pada siang hari serta Culex spp. dan Armigeres spp. yang paling aktif pada malam hari.

      Abstract: The proximity of urban area provides fertile ground for the exchange of bacteria, virus and other health problem. One of the diseases which have a close relationship with the environment and people interaction is dengue. At present, it still is one of the major health problems for Indonesia. One method to understand the disease is by using spatial analysis that the prevention program can be focusing on the area most affected. This study aims to analyze the spatial distribution of dengue cases in Bandung city. The method used was the mapping of dengue cases using geographic information system (GIS) with ArcView software. Data were collected from August 2015 to March 2016 in Bandung city. Results showed that dengue cases increased with fluctuated hyperendemic years especially in the year 2009, 2012, and 2013. Spreading pattern of the disease was from north of Bandung to east. The conclusion of this study dengue cases in Bandung city showed an increased trend with fluctuated hyperendemic year especially in the year 2009, 2012, and 2013. Pockets of highest reported cases were found in north to middle and east for the whole year. The spread of this disease, especially in east Bandung, showed wider affected areas in the observed year. Land usage for residential purposes without good development plan might be on factors that increase the disease transmission. DISTRIBUSI SPASIAL KASUS DEMAM BERDARAH DENGUE DI DAERAH URBAN KOTA BANDUNGKedekatan dalam wilayah urban memberikan kemudahan dalam pertukaran bakteri, virus, dan masalah kesehatan lainnya. Salah satu penyakit yang erat hubungannya dengan kedekatan pemukiman, lingkungan, dan interaksi manusia adalah demam berdarah dengue (DBD). Sampai saat ini DBD masih menjadi masalah kesehatan di Indonesia. Pencegahan suatu penyakit akan lebih mudah dilakukan apabila pemahaman mengenai penyakit tersebut sudah dapat dilakukan dengan baik. Dengan pemetaan (distribusi spasial), kasus DBD akan lebih mudah dimonitor sehingga program pencegahan dapat difokuskan pada wilayah dengan angka kejadian yang tinggi. Penelitian ini bertujuan melihat distribusi spasial kasus DBD mempergunakan geografic information system (GIS) di Kota Bandung. Metode penelitian ini adalah pemetaan kasus di wilayah tertentu dengan GIS menggunakan ArcView software menggunakan data kasus DBD dan data spasial dilaksanakan pada tahun 2015 di Kota Bandung. Hasil penelitian kasus DBD di Kota Bandung menunjukkan peningkatan dengan pola tahun hiperendemik berfluktuasi terutama pada tahun 2009, 2012, dan 2013. Pola pergerakan kasus tampak berawal dari arah utara menuju timur. Kantong wilayah dengan kasus DBD yang tinggi terkumpul di daerah utara menuju timur Kota Bandung sepanjang tahun. Simpulan penelitian ini, penyebaran kasus di wilayah Bandung menunjukkan daerah sebaran yang semakin besar dari tahun ke tahun. Pemanfaatan lahan sebagai pemukiman memiliki keterkaitan terhadap kejadian DBD.

    • Authors: Rizma Adlia Syakurah, Yayi Suryo Prabandari, Doni Widyandana, Amitya Kumara
      Pages: 236 - 240
      Abstract: Choosing a career is an essential stage in medical students’ life. Previous researchers all across the world have been conducted studies to examine determinants of career choices in general and medical careers in sociodemographic and behavioral perspectives. While most of the studies centered on general career choices determinants and located mostly in western countries with general career choices as their topics, few studies explore about medical students’ career choices determinants in a collectivist culture like Indonesia. Hence, this study aimed to explore and describe determinants of medical students’ career choices in collectivist culture setting. Participants, 62 students in total, were recruited from all stages of undergraduate medical students in Sriwijaya University in November 2015 until January 2016. Each of focus groups was led by a facilitator to explore medical students’ career choices’ determinants. Transcripts encoded according to recurring topics and themes that came up during their discussions. Eight themes identified from the discussions were: four major, two intermediate and two minor issues. Major themes were financial gain, prestige, personal interest and family influence. In conclusion, some points can be used to increase medical students’ interest in various medical career fields. Exposure to medical career information should not target merely on medical students but also to their family and the community as well. Government roles in providing financial incentives as well as career opportunities to medical fields to increase the interest of medical students in the certain medical field.
      DETERMINAN KARIR MAHASISWA KEDOKTERAN: SEBUAH STUDI KUALITATIFPemilihan karir merupakan salah satu fase yang penting dalam kehidupan seorang mahasiswa kedokteran. Berbagai penelitian di seluruh dunia telah dilakukan dalam menemukan dan menganalisis determinan pemilihan karir seseorang, baik secara umum, maupun dalam dunia kedokteran secara khusus yang dilakukan pada perspektif sosiodemografi dan perilaku. Saat ini masih sedikit sekali penelitian yang dilakukan pada mahasiswa kedokteran yang bertujuan mengeksplorasi determinan pemilihan karirnya, terutama dalam lingkungan dengan kultur kolektivisme seperti di Indonesia. Penelitian ini ditujukan mengeksplorasi dan menjelaskan alasan pemilihan karir mahasiswa kedokteran pada lingkungan dengan kultur kolektivisme. Partisipan adalah semua mahasiswa kedokteran preklinik di Fakultas Kedokteran Universitas Sriwijaya yang berjumlah 62 orang. Penelitian dilakukan pada bulan November 2015–January 2016. Tiap kelompok diskusi terarah dipimpin oleh seorang fasilitator yang melakukan eksplorasi terkait alasan pemilihan karir mereka. Hasil diskusi dicatat dan transkrip dikelompokkan sesuai dengan tema yang sering muncul selama kegiatan diskusi berlangsung. Delapan tema teridentifikasi dalam diskusi, yaitu empat tema mayor, dua tema menengah, dan dua tema minor bergantung pada seringnya tema tersebut muncul dalam semua diskusi. Tema mayor yang muncul adalah pendapatan, prestise, minat pribadi, dan pengaruh keluarga. Keterpaparan informasi karir kedokteran perlu dilakukan tidak hanya pada mahasiswa, tetapi juga pada keluarga dan lingkungan. Pemerintah juga berperan dalam memberikan insentif dan peluang pada bidang karir yang membutuhkan lebih banyak tenaga kerja di masa yang akan datang untuk meningkatkan minat mahasiswa pada bidang karir tersebut.

    • Authors: Ahmad Hafidz, Tetty Yuniati, Purboyo Solek
      Pages: 241 - 246
      Abstract: Neopterin telah diketahui sebagai biomarker untuk diagnostik sepsis neonatorum awitan dini. Hingga saat ini belum diketahui peran neopterin sebagai biomarker untuk memprediksi luaran sepsis neonatorum awitan dini maupun awitan lanjut. Tujuan penelitian ini menentukan neopterin serum sebagai biomarker prediktor sepsis neonatorum awitan dini dan lanjut. Penelitian dilakukan pada bulan Mei–Juli 2017 di RSUP Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung. Seluruh neonatus yang memenuhi kriteria sepsis neonatorum, yaitu didapatkan skor Tollner ≥10, dilakukan pemeriksaan neopterin serum menggunakan metode ELISA. Subjek kemudian diikuti dan dikelompokkan menjadi luaran perbaikan dan perburukan. Analisis menggunakan receiver operating characteristic (ROC) untuk mendapatkan luas area under curve, menentukan titik potong serta sensitivitas dan spesifisitas. Subjek penelitian terdiri atas 42 neonatus, mayoritas karakteristik neonatus yang mengalami luaran perburukan berjenis kelamin laki-laki (10 subjek), sepsis awitan dini (11 subjek), cara persalinan dengan operasi (11 subjek), dan tempat persalinan di RS (14 subjek). Temuan kadar neopterin pada luaran perburukan lebih tinggi dibanding dengan luaran perbaikan dan disimpulkan terdapat perbedaan yang bermakna (p<0,01). Kadar neopterin rata-rata yang didapatkan pada sepsis luaran perburukan 60,97 ng/mL dengan rentang kadar 40,63–92,04 ng/mL. Luas area di bawah kurva ROC kadar neopterin adalah 0,981 (95% IK=0,882–1,000; p<0,001). Kadar titik potong neopterin >43,13 dengan sensitivitas 94,1% dan spesifisitas 96,0%. Simpulan, kadar titik potong neopterin adalah 43,13 ng/mL serta memiliki sensitivitas 94,1% dan spesifisitas 96,0%. Biomarker ini dapat menjadi salah satu parameter dalam memprediksi dini luaran perburukan sepsis neonatorum awitan dini dan awitan lanjut.
      NEOPTERIN SERUM AS EARLY PREDICTOR OF POOR OOUTCOME IN NEONATAL SEPSISNeopterin was known as the biomarker for diagnosed early onset neonatal sepsis. Nowadays it has been proven for neopterin as predictors of poor outcome in early and late neonatal sepsis. The objective of this study was to determine serum levels of neopterin as predictors of poor outcome in early and late neonatal sepsis. The study held from May to July 2017 in Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung. All subjects were neonatal sepsis with Tollner score ≥10 observed for serum levels of neopterin with ELISA method and then followed during hospitalization. The outcome defined as good and poor outcomes. The data were analyzed using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) for getting area under curved, cut-off point and also sensitivity, specificity. Research subjects consisted of 42 neonates, the majority which experienced poor outcomes were male (10 subjects), early onset sepsis (11 subjects), section cesarean procedure (11 subjects) and were born in a hospital (14 subjects). Serum neopterin levels findings significantly correlated with poor outcomes. Mean of poor outcomes in sepsis was 60.97 ng/mL with observed levels 40.63–92.04 ng/mL. Area under the ROC curve of neopterin were 0.981 (95% CI=0.882–1.000; p<0.001). Cut off levels of neopterin >43.13 with sensitivity 94.1% and specificity 96.0%. In conclusion, cut off levels of neopterin >43.13 with sensitivity 94.1% and specificity 96.0%. Neopterin defined as a biomarker for the early predictor of poor outcome in early and late onset neonatal sepsis.
