  • In Vitro Immunomodulatory Activity of Fig Fruit Ethanol Extract (Ficus
           carica Linn) against Phagocytosis Macrophages and Lymphocyte Proliferation

    • Authors: Iis Nur Azizah, Aji Winanta
      Abstract: Fig (Ficus carica L.)  is a natural product that potentially can improve the immune system because it has flavonoids that have the potential as immunostimulants. The research aims to determine the possibility of fig fruit ethanol extract as an immunomodulator. Immunomodulatory activity is determined by knowing the activity of macrophage phagocytosis and lymphocyte proliferation in vitro and the levels of flavonoids in the extract. The research began with extraction, and then the sample was tested with TLC and colorimetry methods. Furthermore, the sample in the immunomodulatory activity test in vitro was measured through the activity of macrophage phagocytosis and lymphocyte proliferation. In the phagocytosis activity test, macrophage cells were given samples in various concentrations and latex beads. The number of activated macrophages and the number of latex phagocyted by the macrophage is then calculated. For tests of lymphocyte proliferation activity, lymphocyte cells were sampled with different concentrations and induced hepatitis B vaccine. Then the cell absorbance was read with an Elisa reader at 550nm wavelength. The study results found that the samples contained flavonoid compounds, and the total flavonoid levels obtained were 0.74±0.01 mgEQ/g samples. The immunomodulatory activity showed that the sample increased phagocytosis activity of macrophages compared to cell control. The lymphocyte proliferation test produced stimulation index<2 values, showing no effect on the proliferation of lymphocytes. This study indicated that fig fruit ethanol extract could increase the phagocytosis activity of macrophage cells but did not affect the proliferation of lymphocyte cells in vitro.

           L.) against Methillicin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) using Total
           Plate Count

    • Authors: Kania Claranisza Agustin, Fatmaria Fatmaria, Indria Augustina
      Abstract: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection can cause death which has caused the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017 to issue a list of priority pathogens (one of which is MRSA) for the search for new antibiotic research. Bawang suna (Allium schoenoprasum L.) is believed to be able to inhibit the growth of the number of MRSA bacterial colonies because it contains saponins, alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, triterpenoids, and steroids. The research was aimed to prove extract of bawang suna(Allium schoenoprasum L.) has effectiveness as an antibacterial to inhibit the growth of MRSA. True experimental design research design with cup count method using posttest only control design to compare the results of observing the number of MRSA bacterial colonies with and without treatment (control group) with serial dilution sampling technique serial dilution using a ratio of 1:5. The treatment used 1 ml an extract of bawang suna (Allium schoenoprasum L.) in the control group. 1 ml an extract of bawang suna (Allium schoenoprasum L.) gave a significant and closely related effect to inhibiting the growth of MRSA bacteria at a dilution level of 10-3 of 3288,50 + 1117,98, a dilution level of 10-4 of 379,25 + 33,75, and a 10-5 dilution rate of 42,00 + 8,68. The decrease in the number of MRSA bacterial colonies was due to the extract of bawang suna (Allium schoenoprasum L.) containing compounds: saponins, alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, triterpenoids, and steroids that could prevent the growth of MRSA bacterial colonies. The extract of bawang suna (Allium schoenoprasum L.) as much as 1 ml using Total Plate Count (TPC) with serial dilution testing technique has a significant effect on dilutions of 10-3, 10-4, and 10-5 as an antibacterial to inhibit the growth of MRSA bacteria

  • Subcrhonic Toxicity of Curcuma longa (Tumeric) Rhizoma Extract on Rats

    • Authors: Yani Mulyani, Patonah Hasimun, Siti Nurjanah
      Abstract: Toxicity is a condition that indicates a harmful effect contained in a substance such as turmeric, which is an effective traditional medicinal plant used for antihypertensive treatment. Therefore, this study aims to determine the effect of repeated dosing of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) rhizome extract. This subchronic toxicity study was divided into 4 groups, namely 1 normal treated with 0.5% Na-CMC, and 3 treatments with turmeric extract at doses of 50, 100, and 200 mg/kg BW for 28 days with each group consisting of 5 males and 5 female Wistar rats. The results showed that the turmeric extract at doses of 50, 100, and 200 mg/kg BW did not cause toxicity to liver and kidney biochemistry nor contain any toxic substances that might cause anemia or other abnormalities. Furthermore, histopathological examination showed that the tissues were normal. This indicates that the turmeric rhizome extract at all dose variations indicate non-toxic when used in traditional medicine.

           Balloon-type Bubble Bioreactors

    • Authors: Ira Nailas Sa'adah, Yosephine Sri Wulan Manuhara, Alfinda Novi Kristanti
      Abstract: Gynura procumbens has been widely used to treat several health disorders, such as hyperglycemia, hypertension, diabetes, and allergies. This study aimed to determine the flavonoid content of G. procumbens cultured in a balloon-type bubble bioreactor using various sucrose concentrations (10, 30, and 50 g/L) and explant densities (5, 10, and 15 explants). The plant parts used were stem nodes of G. procumbens, grown in a balloon-type bubble bioreactor using Murashige and Skoog (MS) liquid media with IAA 2 mg/L and BAP 4 mg/L. The total flavonoid content was measured using a UV-Vis spectrophotometer (λ= 510 nm), and the flavonoid profile was tested using thin-layer chromatography (TLC). The administration of 10 g/L sucrose produced the highest total flavonoid production. In the treatment of explant density, the most increasing total flavonoid production was obtained in the treatment of 5 explants. The TLC results showed that each treatment forms spots like standard. This study proved that sucrose and explant densities culture on balloon-type bubble bioreactor method had optimized the production of flavonoids of plant shoots of G. procumbens culture.

      Abstract: The essential oil of lavender, lemon, and cinnamon (LaLC) combination is rich in antioxidants and potentially be used as an anti-wrinkle and strengthens the collagen tissue. Ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation is a free radical source that accelerates the aging process and reduces collagen production. This study aims to characterize the chemical components of each oil and determine the best combination as an anti-wrinkle substance. The test was conducted on twenty-four Wistar male rats (Mus musculus) that were divided into six experimental groups consisting of the normal (N), control (C), vehicle control (V), first treatment (T1), second treatment (T2), and third treatment (T3) groups. Each sample was rubbed upon, and the UVB irradiation was administered frequently to each subject. The embedded skin specimen was analyzed using a digital-capable microscope. Data were analyzed through the Kolmogorov-Smirnov normality test, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), and the post-hoc Tukey's Honest Significant Difference test. Lavender, lemon, and cinnamon essential oils contained each most significant component, which was linalool (41.46% peak area), dl limonene (44.74% peak area), and 2-propenal, 3-phenyl- (CAS) (53.89% peak area), respectively according to the Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. The T1 showed the best score of all parameters and did not show significant significance compared to the N group. In conclusion, the 1:1:3 combination of LaLC is better in preventing in vitro photoaging than other treatment groups.

    • Authors: Mubarak Muhammad Dahiru, Nadro Margret Samuel
      Abstract: Hyperlipidemia is characterized by elevated levels of Triglycerides, Cholesterol, LDL, and decreased levels of HDL are challenges in the management of Diabetes mellitus which might lead to death. This study aimed to determine the hypolipidemic potential of ethyl acetate extract of Hyphaene thebaica fruit in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The hypolipidemic potential of H. thebaica fruit in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats was determined. Rats were divided into six groups. Treatment groups were administered the extract at doses of 400 and 200 mg/kg body weight. Oral administration of the extract at 400 mg/kg body weight for four weeks significantly (p < 0.05) decreased the levels of total cholesterol (151.7 mg/dl ±2.40), Triglyceride (84.0 mg/dl ±1.15), LDL (75.2 mg/dl ±1.20) and increased HDL (39.3 mg/dl ±1.88) level. However no significant (p < 0.05) difference was observed between the 400 and 200 mg/kg body weight dose. Conclusively, H. thebaica can be used as a medicinal plant due to its protective action against dyslipidemic complications of diabetes mellitus.
