           Tongkuno, Southeast Sulawesi

    • Authors: Jumianti Lestari Thamrin
      Abstract: Background: The prevalence of underweight and severe malnutrition on under-five children in Southeast Sulawesi based on the latest Riskesdas was 23.9%, which higher than the national prevalence (19.6%). This study aimed to analyze risk factors of growth faltering on infants aged 6-12 months in Tongkuno. Methods: This was a cohort prospective study. The numbers of subjects were 79 infants: 32 infants who were given early complementary feeding and 47 infants who were not. Consecutive sampling technique was used in this study. The adequacy levels of energy and protein intake were collected using 2x24 hours food recall. The incidence of upper respiratory tract infection was recorded through interviews using structured questionnaires. Data were analysed by logistic regression method. Results: There were 46.9% of the infants who had growth faltering among the early complementary feeding group. Multivariate analysis showed that the early complementary feeding, low levels of energy adequacy, and frequent URTI were the risk factors for growth faltering. The frequent URTI was the most influential factor for growth faltering (OR= 5.52; 95%CI: 1.63-18.72). Conclusion: The frequent URTI was the most important factor for growth faltering on infants aged 6-12 months in Tongkuno. Increased exclusive breastfeeding promotion and URTI prevention are recommended.   Keywords: Risk Factors, Growth Faltering, Infants

  • Expression of Catalase and Malondialdehyde Levels in Silicon
           Dioxyde-exposed Lung Tissue of Mice treated with Moringa oleifera Leaves

    • Authors: Kusmiyati Kusmiyati
      Abstract: Silica particle such as silicon dioxide (SiO2), is considered as a hazardous and cytotoxic particle. Silica particle exposure leads to oxidative stress in lung tissue. Moringa oleifera is a plant with potential antioxidant compounds. Therefore the aim of this study was to analyze the effect of M. oleifera leaves extract (MLE) on expression of catalase enzyme and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels in lung tissue of mice exposed to silica particles.
      This study was an experimental study with randomized posttest-only control group design using 30 male Balb/c strain mice, 8-10 weeks of age, 20-30 g body weight (BW), which were randomly divided into five groups. Group 1 was the negative control group, group 2 was exposed to SiO2 particle and set as the positive control group, group 3 was treated with MLE 2 mg/20 g BW, group 4 was treated with MLE 5 mg/20 g BW, and group 5 was treated with MLE 8 mg/20 g BW. After 90 days, mice were sacrificed by cervical dislocation and the lung tissues were examined.
      Study results showed that expression of catalase in lung tissues of MLE-treated group was higher than that of positive control group, but not statistically significant. There was a significant difference of MDA level in lung tissue among groups. MDA level of groups treated with MLE 2 mg/20 g BW and 5 mg/20 g BW was lower than that of control group, while group treated with MLE 8 mg/20 g BW showed higher MDA level than control group (One Way ANOVA, p<0.05).
      It is concluded that administration of MLE indicates to prevent SiO2 induced-oxidative stress in lung tissue of Balb/c mice.

The study shows that harmed entities are female, widow within 6o to 65 years old, earning less than 2000 pesos per month and are dependently living in a nuclear family structure for 40 years. Based on their responses to the open-ended guide questions, key informants revealed emotional mistreatment being the most common form of abuse. Physical and sexual maltreatment are also evident amidst their old age. Family members and employers are the focal identified perpetrators of the elderly. Bruises on most covered areas of their body, rope burns, torn undergarments, being touched without consent are some of the objective indicators of abuse.   Themes such as family violence and workplace mistreatment are the most common form of abuse experienced. Based on the findings, the local government and concerned stakeholders were recommended to timely review existing rules protecting vulnerable adults especially its implementation.

  • The Topography and Physical Activity as Determinant Factor of Grade
           Hypertension in Patients with Primary Hypertension

    • Authors: Krish Naufal Anugrah Robby
      Abstract: Primary hypertension is a causing factor of cardiovascular disease mortality. Patient with primary hypertension having high grade hypertension will cause various dangerous diseases if it is not performed further countermeasures. Consequently, it is necessary to prevent the increase of grade hypertension or blood pressure by analyzing grade hypertension risk factor. This study was quantitative research with cross sectional design method. The samples in this study were 346 respondents taken by consecutive sampling. Partial Least Square (PLS) with smart PLS 3 Application software was used as to analyze the data. Results shows that there is a physical activity effect on grade hypertension, with the value of path coefficient by -0.564 of t statistic 16,488 (t statistic > t table significance by 1.96). Based on the result of the study, there is a topography effect on grade hypertension, with the value of path coefficient by 0,412 of t statistic 8.690 (t statistic > t table significance by 1.96). Physical activity affects grade hypertension. The better the physical activity, the better the way to prevent a blood pressure increase mainly systolic blood pressure. The high topography can lead to increase grade hypertension in the primary hypertension patient, therefore, lifestyle and topographic effect should also be considered for people with primary hypertension mainly for non-native people who have not experienced acclimatization.
