Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. A person who has been diagnosed with active TB (TB that affects the lungs and causes symptoms of coughing up blood, night sweats, weight loss, fever and chest pain), will be given a TB drug package (OAT) that must be taken for six months, where This drug is a combination of several antibiotics. TB treatment is divided into 2 phases, namely the intensive phase (2-3 months) and the continuation phase (4-6 months). The combination of drugs used consists of a combination of the main and additional drugs. In the treatment of TB, OAT is the main type of drug used. The most serious side effect of using OAT is hepatotoxic. Hepatotoxicity is a reaction to exposure to substances that can cause liver damage. Liver function tests can be done through the SGPT test. The type of this research is descriptive, with the aim of providing an overview of the results of determining Serum Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase (SGPT) levels in TB patients who undergo treatment for 6 months - 1 year, by taking 8 samples of serum from TB patients, using the Kinetic method on the Biochemical Photometer BC153. The results showed that there were 3 samples that had increased levels of SGPT and the other 5 samples did not experience an increase in levels of SGPT (normal). Giving OAT does not significantly cause SGPT levels in tuberculosis patients to increase, but long-term administration of OAT can affect the increase in SGPT in tuberculosis patients.

Musca domestica is a type of fly species known as a carrier of disease and can be found in places where there is wet household waste, especially those rich in easily decomposed organic matter. The habit of flies looking for food and breeding in trash cans causes various disease-causing microorganisms to stick to the fly's feet and fine hairs all over the fly's body. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of fragrant pandan leaf concentrations of 50%, 70%, and 90% in killing house flies (Musca domestica). This research is experimental research with a posttest-only design with a control group. The sampling technique was carried out by purposive sampling. The results of this study indicated that the lowest average mortality of Musca domestica was found at a concentration of 50% in 15 individuals and the highest mortality was found at a concentration of 90% in 30 individuals. The higher the concentration of fragrant pandan leaf juice, the more effective it is in killing house flies (Musca domestica). The community can use the aromatic pandan leaf solution as an environmentally friendly plant insecticide.

Dandruff is a medical condition that indicates the activity or growth of fungi on the scalp. Shampooing using an anti-dandruff shampoo is an action that can be taken to inhibit the growth of these fungi. Anti-dandruff shampoo contains antifungal active compounds such as ZnPtO, selenium sulfide, piroctone olamine which functions in reducing fungal infections on the scalp which are expected to inhibit the growth of fungi found on the scalp that cause dandruff. This study aims to determine the inhibition of the active compound in anti-dandruff shampoo against fungal growth isolated from dandruff. This research is a laboratory experimental study which was carried out by isolating the fungus from dandruff and continued by testing the inhibition of fungal growth using a shampoo containing active compounds. From the results of research conducted on 3 shampoos that have different anti-dandruff compounds, namely ZnPtO, 1% selenium sulfide, and piroctone olamine, the growth of fungal colonies decreased with different contact times, namely 2 minutes, 4 minutes, and 6 minutes. The conclusion of the study stated that shampoo containing piroctone olamine compound with a contact time of 6 minutes inhibited the growth of fungal colonies better than other shampoos containing 1% selenium sulfide and zinc pyrithione (ZnPtO).
