Abstract:Rational drug use (RDU) is an indicator to evaluates a treatment given to patients, like proper medication, precise diagnosis, precise dosing. Community Health Center (CHC) has the risk of irrational drug use. In this study, researchers selected N and BL CHC, aiming to evaluate the prescribing indicators based on three diseases which are non-pneumonia acute respiratory infection (ARI), non-specific diarrhea and myalgia, and the facility indicators with DOEN (list of essential national medicines) availability and 20 mandatory drugs. This research was a descriptive-analytical study with cross-sectional methods where the data retrieval of the prescribing is taken from January to December 2018. The study used the normality test and homogeneity test before independent sample T-test, from the third outcome of the test, the N and BL CHC could be said to differ significantly of RDU. It can be concluded that rational drug use is reviewed from a prescribing indicator based on disease and facility indicator. The results of RDU are rational in N CHC, in contrast with BL CHC which is not rational with the results of the RDU in N CHC is 101.44% and BL CHC is 89.81%. The results of N CHC is better than BL CHC, which both CHCs have fulfilled the target of the government, for 68% in 2018. In both CHCs for the facility indicator, there are a DOEN and 20 essential medicines.

Abstract:Acne is a pile of oil glands in the skin that are actively being clogged by dirt and infection because of Propionibacterium acnes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Staphylococcus epidermidis. The treatment for acne can use herbal ingredients, one of which is Soursop (Annona muricata L.) leaves ethanolic extract. Annona muricata folium ethanolic extract is known to have alkaloid, flavonoid and polyphenol compounds which can inhibit the growth of P. acnes, S. epidermidis, and S. aureus. Suitable dosage forms for anti-acne preparations are gels because the gel contains much water so that it provides a cooling effect on the skin due to inflammation. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of carbopol 940 and Propylene glycol on the physical characteristics of the gel preparation and determine the optimum formula of the gel preparation using factorial design software 22 so that the gel preparation was made in four formulas. The data obtained were then analyzed using Design-Expert� and ANOVA software with a confidence level of 95%, and the determination of the optimum formula based on the optimum superimposed contour plot area. The results of the study using a factorial design approach are known that Propylene glycol has an effect on increasing the spreadability and pH while carbopol 940 has a more significant impact on the increase in adhesion and viscosity, and the optimum area of ??the composition of carbopol 940 1.536% and propylene glycol 5% was obtained.

Abstract:Food allergies are one of the most common allergies in Indonesian society. Generally, when children aged 5-6 years food allergies will disappear, except peanut allergies and allergies to seafood, such as fish, shellfish and crustaceans. This study aims to determine the pattern of separation of allergen proteins in shrimp using anion exchange column chromatography method and identify allergen proteins in shrimp using the sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) method. Protein extraction from shrimp using Phosphate buffer saline (PBS) pH 7.2 and centrifuged at 10,000 rpm for 10 min at 4�C. Protein separation was carried out by anion-exchange column chromatography method, and the fraction obtained was measured at 280nm wavelength. The highest yield at absorbance was identified by using SDS-PAGE. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was used to determine the protein profile and molecular weight of shrimp extract. Coloring of protein bands using silver staining. Data were analyzed descriptively based on the migration value of the sample protein bands compared to the marker protein band (Rf). The results of protein allergen profile analysis on shrimp using SDS-PAGE showed that the shrimp contained a protein band with a molecular weight of 37.77 kDa for cooked shrimp and 37.03 kDa for fresh shrimp.

Abstract:The purpose of this study is to assess the rationality of the use of antibiotics from inpatients in one hospital in Cimahi, West Java. The research about rationality analysis of antibiotics at pediatric inpatient in one of the hospitals in Cimahi was done retrospectively use descriptive analysis design. The data source was the medical record of a patient who treated at the children's inpatient ward from January through March 2017. The result shows that 39% of infected patients were children under one-year-old. Three significant cases of diseases that occurred in the period were bronchopneumonia, typhoid fever, and typhoid fever+bronchopneumonia. Antibiotics therapy was given as single therapy as well as combination, where cefotaxime (51%) and ceftriaxone (42%) were the most antibiotics widely used as single therapy. Antibiotic use at children inpatient ward during the period January � March 2017 on bronchopneumonia, typhoid fever, and typhoid fever + bronchopneumonia patients was not 100% rational referring to criteria: correct diagnosis, correct indication, the correct drug of choice, correct dosage, correct method, and correct time interval of drug administration.

Abstract:Ebola viral disease (EVD) is a deadly infectious hemorrhagic viral fever caused by the Ebola virus with a high mortality rate. Until date, there is no effective drug or vaccination available to combat this condition. This study focuses on designing an effective antiviral drug for Ebola viral disease targeting viral protein 30 (VP30) of Ebola virus, highly required for transcription initiation. The lead molecules were screened for Lipinski rule of five, ADMET study following which molecular docking and bioactivity prediction was carried out. The compounds with the least binding energy were analyzed using interaction software. The results revealed that 6-Hydroxyluteolin and (-)-Arctigenin represent active lead compounds that inhibit the activity of VP30 protein and exhibits efficient pharmacokinetics. Both these compounds are plant-derived flavonoids and possess no known adverse effects on human health. In addition, they bind strongly to the predicted binding site centered on Lys180, suggesting that these two lead molecules can be imperative in designing a potential drug for EVD.

Abstract:Hydrargyrum (familiar as mercury) is a persistent transition metal element. They are known as bio-accumulative properties that are dangerous to the environment and has serious damaging effects on biota, including genetic changes or mutagenesis. Moreover, it can accumulate indirectly in the human body due to the consumption of products that have contaminated. Whereas, ellagic acid has reported as one of 13 flavonoid compounds that have potential as an anti-mutagen and anti-cancer in the walnuts seeds. This study was aimed to ensure the potential extent of ellagic acid extracts in walnut seeds to reducing and repairing the genotoxicity effects of mercury. Therefore, using the experimental method, this study was divided into several test treatments. Two controls treatment as a comparison of the presence of micronucleus with group tests that given a 20 ppm mercury dosage. Then continued with the addition of walnut seed extract with various dosage (10, 15, and 20 ppm) by oral injection continuously for two weeks as a recovery process to reducing and repairing the genotoxicity effect of mercury. The significant results showed that there are differences between pre and post-treatment. It indicated that the extract has the potential for improving and reducing the genotoxicity effect of mercury. The data were evaluated and obtained the total micronucleus from the smear of peripheral blood of mice by comparing the total micronucleus before and after giving of walnut extract.

Abstract:Coffee (Coffea sp) is the second-largest beverage consumed by people around the world whose process comes from the processing and extraction of coffee beans. Coffee has a chemical compound, one of which is caffeine. Caffeine is a crystal-shaped compound. Caffeine can be a tangible white powder or a shiny white needle-shaped, odorless caffeine, and caffeine has a bitter taste. The purpose of the study was to determine the caffeine levels of local ground coffee on the island of Dabo with the spectrophotometry UV-Vis method. Analysis of the ground coffee caffeine levels is quantitative determined using spectrophotometry UV-Vis. The equation of the calibration curve of caffeine is regression y = 0.1307x + 0.0112 with a correlation coefficient value (r) of 0.9993. Based on Indonesian National Standards (SNI) 01-7152-2006, The maximum limit of caffeine in foods and beverages is 150 mg/day and 50 mg/serving. The results of the analysis of caffeine levels from three samples of ground coffee circulating on Dabo Island each in 2 g were 0.3383 mg for Sample A; 0.3786 mg for Sample B; and 0.5803 mg for Sample C.

Abstract:The present study is on Acacia seyal gum (ASG), which is an exudate from Talha tree. It provides a rich source of polyphenolics compounds that are used traditionally in folk medicine. The study aims to determine the antioxidant capacity (AC) and functional groups of ASG and Prebio-T-commercial (PTC) samples. The methanol crude extracts of both ASG and PTC have fractioned into chloroform (CHF), hexane (HF), acetone (AF) and methanol (MF) using solvent-solvent portion. Both ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP), and cupric reducing antioxidant capacity (CUPRAC) assays for each fraction examined. Crude methanol extracts (CME) and its active compositions also analysed carefully using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) technique. The findings presented a wide variety of functional groups provided by the FTIR spectra (eights bands approximately. Regarding cupric reducing antioxidant capacity (CUPRAC), the methanol crude extracts values are 888.6�4.57 mg TE/100g extract, for PTC as compared to 474.3� 2.23 mg TE/100g of extract for ASG. However, both methanol and acetone fractions revealed significantly (p = 0.05) high FRAP values ranged between 599.8�7.5 and 741.8�5.8 mg TE/100g fraction; for PTC and ASG, respectively. While CUPRAC showed insignificant (p = 0.05) same values 356.1�2.62 mg TE/100g of fraction; for MF of both PTC and ASG respectively. Therefore, in this study, methanolic fractions (MFs) are found to be more effective than acetone fractions (AFs), except for CHF and HF. Finally, the antioxidant activity of the active fraction has provided some evidence regarding its functional groups which may have used in traditional medicine.
