Abstract
Background: Bark of Massoia aromatica Becc (Lauraceae) has been widely used in Java, Bali and Sumatra as a fragrance ingredient, seasoning and traditional medicine. C-10 Massoia lactone is a major constituent of its essential oil which has been proven as the antibacterial principle and has the ability to increase the phagocytic index of mice macrophage. Objective: to find out the immunomodulatory effects of the Massoia aromatica bark extract against Candida albicans as well as to explore the potential toxicities against fibroblast and vero cells. Material and methods: The extract was obtained by maseration of the pulverized barks with ethanol 96%, followed by solvent evaporation. The Massoia lactone contain was analysed by TLC-Densitometry. The immunological assay was based on the effect on SD mice lymphocyte proliferation and macrophage phagocytosis activities against latex and Candida albicans. Samples concentration tested were in the range of 30 – 2.5 μg/mL and done in triplicate. Cytotoxicity assays were done on fibroblast and vero cells by using the MTT assay. ANOVA followed by Tukey-HSD was used for statistical analyses. Results: The ethanolic extract was separated into two layers, i.e. solid and oily phases. All samples exhibited no effect on lymphocyte cell proliferation which indicated by the stimulation index proliferation value of less than 2. However, all samples showed activation of the macrophage phagocytosis both on latex and Candida albicans in a concentration dependant manner. IC50s of oily and solid extracts on fibroblast were 46.13 and 53.03 μg/ml respectively, while on Vero cell were found at 43.59 and 153.05 μg/ml, respectively.

Abstract
Chemotherapeutic agent resistance is becoming a heavy obstacle in cancer therapy as it increases the toxicity of the drug to normal cells and reduces the efficacy of the drug to cancer cells. The molecular mechanism of resistance may involve Pgp protein, a transmembrane protein which has been known to induce efflux of its substrates, including chemotherapeutic drugs, from the cells. One idea to overcome this problem is by combining the chemotherapeutic agent with other substance in order to sensitize cancer cells. Leunca (Solanum nigrum L.) is a potential source of natural anticancer agent. Leunca ethanolic extract (LHE) has cytotoxic activity in several cancer cell lines such as HepG2 and HT-29. The aims of this research were to investigate the effect of leunca ethanolic extract (LHE) in combination with a chemotherapeutic agent, doxorubicin, on MCF-7/doxorubicin resistant (MCF7/DOX) cell line viability and observing the expression level of Pgp protein after combination treatment. Cell viability assay of LHE and its combination with doxorubicin were conducted using MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2.5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide] assay. Pgp expression levels were observed using immunocytochemistry. LHE showed cytotoxic effect on MCF-7/DOX cell line with IC50 344 μg/ml. Combination of 0.375 (1/16 IC50) and 0.75 μM (1/8 IC50) doxorubicin with 21.5 (1/16 IC50) and 43 μg/ml (1/8 IC50) LHE showed strong synergistic effect (CI is 0.1-0.3). The immunocytochemistry results showed that the combination treatment reduced the expression level of Pgp while the doxorubicin treatment increased Pgp expression level. These results suggested that LHE is potential to be developed as co-chemotherapeutic agent on breast cancer cells.

Puspitasari, A, Pramono, S, Martono, S, Widyarini, S
Abstract
In the recent development, natural product industry has utilized extracts as raw material despite crude drugs. This phenomenon is due to the simplicity of extract to formulate and standardize. In order to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency, it is necessary to optimize extraction process which produces extract with high active compound content. Andrographis paniculata has been widely used in traditional medicine and natural product industry, therefore its extraction need to be optimized. Some researches in the field of kinetic and modeling of A. paniculata soxhlet extraction and other non-conventional techniques have been reported, but the application of these methods in industrial scope is complicated.   This research determined the optimum extraction conditions for A. paniculata using maceration method. In this report   the study began with determining the effect of particle size, extraction time and solvent composition toward andrographolide content. Further optimization of the process parameters were solute to solvent ratio, temperature and stirring speed. To purify the extract from chlorophyll, electro coagulation method was used with electrodes variation (Aluminum and Copper). Best  extraction  conditions  for  particle  size, extraction  time  and  solvent concentration  were  found  to  be  < 0.6  mm,  500  min  and  96% ethanol  respectively. The univariate analysis using SPSS 22.0 for windows shows that there is   significant effect of the factor solute/solvent ratio, stirring speed and temperature of maceration. Electro coagulation results show that aluminum electrode gave better extract purification than copper electrode.

Fakhrudin, N,Khairunnisa, S.Y., Azzahra, A, Ajiningtyas, R.J
Abstract
Free radicals are ions, molecules or atoms with unpaired electrons that are highly unstable and reactive against other molecules. Free radicals contributed in the development of various human disorders. In this study, we investigated the possible new sources of natural radical scavengers which could provide antioxidant mechanisms to protect against the negative effects of free radicals. Radical scavenger activity of water, ethanol and ethyl acetate extracts of A. altilis extracts were evaluated by the radical DPPH scavenging test. All extracts demonstrated radical scavenger activity in which the ethyl acetate extract demonstrated the strongest activity as a radical DPPH scavenger. As A. altilis leaves contains various phenol and flavonoid compounds, the content of phenol and flavonoid compounds were determined by colorimetric techniques using the Folin-Ciocalteu assay and AlCl3 reagent, respectively. Our investigation revealed that the ethyl acetate extract showed the highest activity (IC50: 66.52 ± 0.70 µg/mL) compared to the ethanol (IC50: 88.08 ± 5.54 µg/mL) and water (IC50: 399.85 ± 9.48 µg/mL) extracts. The ethyl acetate extract also contains the highest amount of phenol contents (6.47 ± 0.11 % gallic acid equivalent) compared to the ethanol and water extracts (5.78 ± 0.14 % and 1.02 ± 0.15, respectively). Interestingly, the total flavonoid content of the ethyl acetate extract is the lowest (0.22 ± 0.02 % quercetin equivalent) among the others (0.33 ± 0.01 % and 0.50 ± 0.01 % for ethanol and water extract, respectively). We found a strong correlation between the radical scavenger activity with the total phenol content of the extracts but not with the total flavonoid contents. This study indicated that A. altilis leaves represents a promising new source of natural antioxidants

Hudan Taufiq, Endang Lukitaningsih, Sudibyo Martono
Abstract
Furosemide was a loop diuretic drug with extensive use for the treatment of various indications so many copy products had been manufactured. A copy product of furosemide should pass bioequivalence requirements which need a validated analytical method, but the previous methods still too complicated. For this reason, a simple and rapid RP-HPLC method was developed and validated for quantifying furosemide in human plasma. Chromatographic separation was performed under isocratic elution on Luna Phenomenex® C18 (250 x 4.6 mm, 5 µm) column. The mobile phase was comprised of methanol, acetonitrile, and phosphate buffer 20 mM pH 3.0 (10:30:60 v/v/v) and pumped at flow rate of 1.6 mL/min. The UV detector was operated at      233 nm. Protein precipitation was conducted using methanol and propranolol was used as an internal standard. This method was validated according to the FDA guidelines. Calibration curve were linear (r = 0.9997) in the ranges of 400-1400 ng/mL. The lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) was established at 400 ng/mL with errors and RSD at this concentration did not exceed 20% and 8% respectively. The limit of detection (LOD) was found at concentration of 100 ng/mL. The within-run and between-run precision did not exceed 10%, whereas the errors did not exceed 6% at concentration above LLOQ. So the method was proved reliable for quantifying furosemide in human plasma.

Hari Purnomo, Umar Anggara Jenie, Agung Endro Nugroho, Harno Dwi Pranowo
Abstract
HP2009 or 1,3 bis(p-hydroxyphenyl)urea and MH2011 or 1- (4-hydroxynaphtalene-1 -yl)-3-(p-hydroxyphenyl)urea are para-aminophenol analogues modified based on the paracetamol structure. In our previous study with acetic acid-induced writhing reflex model, these compounds exhibited analgesic effects with ED50 values of 58 and 10 mg/kgBW, respectively. The potencies were more potent than this of paracetamol (91 mg/kgBW). In the silico study, the docking scores against 6COX.PDB were -67.4556; -85.1618; and -95.396, respectively. In the study, we investigated in silico and in vivo qualitative relationships of these compounds. In the study, there was a qualitative relationship between in silico with in vivo studies. The more stable bonds were due to the increasing number of drug receptor amino acid that plays a role in the bonding. Paracetamol was fastened by 8 amino acids, whereas HP2009 and MH2011 were bound by 10 and 12 amino acids, respectively. In silico study (molecular docking PLANTS) can be used to predict the potential of a drug to other drugs in the same action mechanism.

In this study, new compound had been found by reacting allylthiourea with benzoyl chloride. The molecular docking of this compound on EGFR (1M17.pdb) using MVD v5.5 showed that the Rerank Scores were lower than 5-fluorouracyl (5FU). It can be predicted that the compound has a higher biological activity. The synthesized of new compound N-(allylcarbamothioyl)benzamide (BATU) was performed through nucleophilic substitution mechanism of the Schotten Baumann method by using triethylamine as a base. The structure of the newly synthesized compound was confirmed by TLC, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR. The in vitro study of cytotoxicity test was evaluated on human breast cancer cell lines (T47D) using MTT assay. The result showed that this compound demonstrated more potent compared to 5-fluorouracil as the commercial anticancer drug, with respective IC50 were 56.5 μg/mL (BATU) and 132.4 μg/mL (5FU). It can be concluded that the synthesized compound can be further developed as a potential anticancer drug.

11. A Novel Reversed Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatography Method To Accurately Determine Low Concentrations Of Curcumin In Rat Plasma
Setyaningsih D, Murti YB, Martono S, Hinrichs W.L.J., Hertiani T, Fudholi A
Abstract
Due to its lipophilic nature, curcumin levels in plasma are very low after oral administration, and therefore hard to detect. A number of chromatographic methods, including LC/MS have been developed. Although the LC/MS method is sensitive, the matrix effect can be difficult to handle. Furthermore, LC/MS equipment is relatively expensive compared to the conventional RP-HPLC. Therefore, the aim of this study was to develop a sensitive and reliable method for the determination of curcumin concentration in plasma using an RP-HPLC. Curcuma longa extract was used which contains three curcuminoids. The method started by selection of mobile phase to optimally separate the curcuminoids. The best mobile phase composition was used to analyze the plasma samples. Rat plasma was spiked with curcumin and processed for protein precipitation followed by liquid-liquid extraction of curcuminoids and an internal standard, emodin. Chromatogaphic separation of curcuminoids and emodin was achieved using a Knauer C-18 column (250 x 4.6 mm; particle size: 5µm) and a gradient program of mobile phase of three solvents, methanol-acetonitrile-1% acetic acid. A gradient elution was applied with increasing the ratio of the volume percentages of acetonitrile to acetic acid from 50/45 to 53/42 during 5 minute and thereafter elution was isocratic for 15 minute. The methanol concentration was kept constant at 5 vol-% during the whole run. The method was validated according to the FDA guidelines.The method was selective, with an excellent resolution (Rs value > 2.5). The peak shape of both curcumin and emodin were symmetric with a tailing factor of 0.9-1.1. The method linearity (correlation coefficient of 0.999) was demonstrated at 6 to 200 ng/mL. The intra- and inter-day precision was 5.90-8.50% and 5.37-11.26%, respectively; the intra- and inter-day accuracy was 92.47-103.61% and 96.17-105.70%, respectively. In conclusion, the RP-HPLC method meets the validation requirements as described in the FDA guidelines and is applicable to accurately quantify curcumin concentrations as low as 6 ng/mL in rat plasma samples.

Yohanes Martono, Sugeng Riyanto, Abdul Rohman, Sudibyo Martono
Abstract
Stevioside and rebaudioside A are diterpene glycoside compounds from Stevia rebaudiana Bert. plant. These compounds are used as non-caloric natural sweetener and antidiabetic agent. Stevioside and rebaudioside A have close polarity; therefore it is a challenge to separate these compounds using isocratic RP-HPLC.  The goal of this research was to study the effect of mobile phase compositions, organic modifier, and flow rate on selectivity and retention of stevioside and rebaudiosideA on isocratic RP-HPLC analysis. The developed method was applied to determine selectivity of respected compounds in sample matrix of Stevia rebaudiana leaves. The mixture of water-metanol-acetonitrile with certain composition was optimized. Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) as organic modifier was added. Flow rate of mobile phase was varied between 0.6 – 1.0 mL/min. The result showed that mobile phase mixture of water : methanol (90 : 10, v/v, pH = 3.0) : acetonitrile : TFA ( 65 : 35 : 0.01, v/v/v) and flow rate 0.6 mL/min could resolve stevioside and rebaudioside A compounds on isoractic RP-HPLC. The resolution (R) of these compounds was 2.36. Mobile phase compositions in small variation did not influence the retention significantly, however, flow rate of mobile phase influenced both selectivity and retention.  The proposed method was selective, efficient, and simple to analyse stevioside and rebaudioside A in complex sample matrix of Stevia rebaudiana leaves.

Rumiyati, Sudarsono, Susanto B.O., Mayasari S.K., Wijaya R.N
Abstract
Inhibition of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) plays an important role to treat hypertension. Flavonoid compounds have been known to have  ACE inhibitor activity. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate ACE inhibitior activity of flavonoid-phenolic fraction from extracts of three edible plants using in vitro assay. The investigated samples were Vigna unguiculata, Allium fistulosum and Manihot utilissima. Flavonoid-phenolic compounds in the extracts obtained from the samples were analyzed using Thin Layer Chromatography and Densitometer techniques. Total phenolic contents were determined by Folin-Ciocalteu colorimetric method. ACE inhibitory assay method was based on hydrolysis of substrate HHL (Hippuryl-L-Histidyl-L-Leucine) by ACE into HA (Hippuric Acid) product. The amount of HA (Hippuric Acid) represented ACE activity and it was measured  using spectrophotometer at 228 nm. Then, ACE inhibitor activity was determined by % ACE inhibitor value. The result of the present study showed that each fraction from Vigna unguiculata, Allium fistulosum and Manihot utilissima extracts contained flavonoid-phenolic compounds with total phenolic contents (per 100 g fresh weight) were 21.99± 0.64 mg GAE, 66.29±1.79 mg GAE and 113.12±1.29 mg GAE, respectively. ACE Inhibitor activity of flavonoid-phenolic fraction from Vigna unguiculata, Allium fistulosum and Manihot utilissima extracts at 100 μg/mL concentration were 23.77±9.19%, 86.75±12.44% and 105.59±12.26%, respectively. From this study, flavonoid-phenolic fractions from Allium fistulosum and Manihot utilissima extracts might be potential to develop as antihypertensive agent.

C. longa Linn was compiled from several market in district of Java region has been developed. Thin layer chromatography (TLC) was used as reference methods, and the level of curcuminoids obtained by TLC method was used as actual values. During analysis using FTIR spectroscopy, some optimization in terms of selecting the best wavenumbers regions capable of providing the high coefficient of determination (R2) and low values of errors was taken. After optimization, curcumin was predicted by FTIR spectroscopy combined with partial least of square using 40 different wavenumbers and the coefficient of determination (R2) for the relationship between actual values of curcumin determined using TLC and FTIR predicted values using absorbancies at these forty wavenumbers is 0.8716. These wavenumbers were also used for prediction of BDMC having R2 of 0.9158. Finally, the R2 for the relationship between actual values of BDMC and FTIR predicted values are 0.9023. These results indicated that FTIR spectroscopy combined with PLS is an alternative technique for determination of C, DMC and BDMC in turmeric powder. The developed method (FTIR spectroscopy) is rapid, no sample preparation and not involving excessive solvents and reagens.

Abstract
Self Nanoemulsifying Drug Delivery System (SNEDDS) is not only limited to develop Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS) class II drugs, but also BCS class III and IV. Protein is classified into BCS class III because of its good solubility and its poor permeability. It needs suitable composition to load hydrophilic substance into lipophilic carrier such as SNEDDS. The objective of the study was to optimize SNEDDS template for Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) protein using D-optimal mixture design. In this study, BSA was used and loaded into a SNEDDS template. Mixture of D-optimal design was used for optimization. The optimized template contained minimum amount of surfactant and maximum amount of oil that shows enhanced transmittance and emulsification rate. Sixteen formulas consisting of oil phase (X1, Mygliol 812), surfactant (X2, Chremophore EL 40), and co-surfactant (X3, Span 20) were evaluated for transmittance and emulsification time. The optimum SNEDDS template was then loaded with 1mg/ml BSA. Characterization results of the optimum template showed 55,4 nm of the size, -0,9 mV of zeta potential, spheric morphology, 34,24±0,53 second of emulsifying time, 94,20±0,82% of transmittance, and 87±0,4 0C of cloud point. The template was also resistant to 100, 200 and 1000 times dilution using water as medium, Simulated Gastric Fluid (SGF), and Simulated Intestinal Fluid (SIF).

Abstract
The aim of this study is to develop a polymeric drug delivery system for a nonsteroid anti inflammatory. Nanosuspensions of piroxicam were prepared by evaporative antisolvent precipitation methode (bottom-up technique) proved to be effective in improving the oral bioavailability as a result of enhanced solubility and bioavailability. To achieve this objective, the formulations were prepared by using experimental design (Simplex Lattice) to study the effects of  formulation, variables as Chitosan (X1), Polivinylpirolidon PVP K30 (X2) and Sodium Tripoliposphat STPP (X3) in combination or singly on response of particle size (Zav), polidispersity index (DPI), zeta potensial (ZP) and entrapment efficiency (%EE) of nanosuspensions. The physical characteristics of nanosuspensions piroxicam were evaluated by using particle size analyzer and a UV–visible spectrophotometer. The results of optimized formulations showed that the interaction among Chitosan, PVP K30 and STPP  was the most dominant factor to influence particle size distribution, zeta potential, polydispersity index and % entrapment efficiency. The nanoprecipitation method was used to prepare biodegradable nanosuspensions of reproducible sizes in the range (100-300 nm) with spherical shape by addressing the effects of processing parameters. Based on superimpose counterplot, it is obtained the optimum area with proportion of (X1):27,5-43,4% ; (X2): 20,9-46,9%; (X3): 30,6-40,2%. The use of an experiments design allows us to study the influence of different factors of formulation and manufacturing process on the formulation process, and to reduce the number of experiments.

Abstract
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder with symptoms of chronic hyperglycemia and disturbances in metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins due to insulin deficiency, insulin resistance or inability of β-cells of pancreas to produce insulin. This study was aimed to evaluate the effects of ethanolic extract from Sargassum polycystum on glucose level and lipid profile in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. S. polycystum was extracted with ethanol 96%, then the extract was tested for in vivo experiment and analyzed using GC-MS. Ethanolic extract of S. polycystum at 150 mg/kg and 450 mg/kg was administered orally to streptozotocin induced diabetic rats, once daily for 15 days. The results obtained were then compared with normal controls (non-diabetes+normal saline 0.9% p.o), negative control (diabetes +CMC-Na 0.5% p.o) and positive control (diabetes+glibenclamide 5 mg/kg p.o). The glucose levels, lipis profile and body weight were measured on normal condition (baseline), on 0, 5th, 10th, 15th day, and pancreatic histopathological study was done on 15th day. Result showed that S. polycystum extract with 150 mg/kg had the highest capability on prevention of DM indicated by the increase in body weight, decreased  of  blood glucose values, increased of cholesterol values, decreased of triglyceride values, increased of HDL-c and LDL-c. Pancreatic necrosis was found in all streptozotocin-induced rats. S. polycystum extract with 450 mg/kg concentrations showed highest reduction of  β-cells of the pancreas induced by streptozotocin is better than  S. polycystum extract with 150 mg/kg. S. polycystum extract contains terpenoids and phenolic such as camphor, elemol, β-elemene, α-curcumene, germacrone and phenol which might be potential as oral antidiabetes therapy.

Tangka J, Banne Y, Dumanauw J M, Rumagit B I
Abstract
Setting a daily diet is the first step in tackling the risk of CHD, which is due to the increasing levels of cholesterol and fat. This can be done by consuming fish that is a natural source of ω-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. One of the products processed from the extraction of fish, especially fatty fish is tuna fish oil that almost 40% of the total fat content is ω-3 PUFAs are EPA and DHA. This study aimed to determine the effect of Tuna fish oil (Thunnus albacares) against the total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triacylglycerol levels in the blood of hypercholesterolemia rats (Rattus norvegicus). The fish oil was extracted from fish waste Tuna with a reflux method using chloroform,  and the levels of EPA and DHA were determined using a gas liquid chromatography. The samples were 40 male rats. Five rats were used as a normal control group, and 35 rats were subsequently given a high-cholesterol diet for 6 weeks to achieve a state of hypercholesterolemia. Five rats from the experiment group were taken as data for hypercholesterolemia. Of 35 rats, 30 were divided into 3 groups of 10 rats: 1) a control posttest group (P0), receiving the treatment of a high-cholesterol diet, 2) the first treatment group (P1), which was given a high-cholesterol diet + 1 dose (0.5 ml) of Tuna fish oil and 3) the second treatment group (P2), which was given a high-cholesterol diet + 2 doses (1 ml) of Tuna fish oil. The treatment was given for four weeks and the data were then analyzed using descriptive statistics and ANOVA test, followed by LSD test. The results showed that the Tuna fish oil supplementation can reduce the total cholesterol, the LDL cholesterol and the triacylglycerol levels significantly with p <0.05. It can also increase the HDL cholesterol levels significantly with p <0.05.

Abstract
The antiatherosclerosis effect of purified Andrographis paniculata extract (PAE) was studied on atherosclerotic Wistar male albino rats. A fat-rich diet containing 10% yolk, 15% fat of pig, 1% calcium, 20,000 IU vitamin D3 was administered to albino male wistar rats for 60 days to induce atherosclerosis. The two groups atherosclerosis rats were treated orally with PAE for 30 days at doses  of 24 and 70 mg/kg body weight, respectively. Its lipid level in blood was measured at before and the last of the PAE treatments. At the end of the PAE treatments, the rats were sacrificed and the morphology of their aorta was observed under a microscope. A TLC-densitometer was used to analyze the andrographolide content in the PAE. The results showed that andrographolide was found in the PAE as it produced Rf value of 0.5 which was similar to andrographolide refference standard.  The fat-rich diet supplemented with vitamin D3 and calcium induced dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis in rats. This was indicated by accumulation of fat plaques or calcification on the wall of their arteries.  The PAE can become an antidyslipidemia by lowering total cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL-C and also increasing HDL-C in blood (p< 0.05). The PAE dose of 70 mg/kg body weight, removed lipid plaques significantly until the same level observed in normal conditions). The andrographolide content of the PAE might be responsible for the removal of lipid plaques on the wall of rat arteries.

Fajaryanti N, Nurrochmad A, Fakhrudin N
Abstract
Hyperlipidemic is a lipid metabolism disorder characterized by high levels of blood cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL and low HDL levels. Hyperlipidemic is one of the most important risk factor of atherosclerosis leading to cardiovascular diseases. Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis (Parkinson) Fosberg.) is an Indonesian native plant traditionally used as a cholesterol-lowering remedy. Breadfruit leaf water extract contains various flavonoid compounds, especially prenylated and geranylated flavonoids. The aim of this study was to investigate the antihyperlipidemic effect of water, ethanol and ethyl acetate extracts of breadfruit leaf by measuring total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL levels in male rats induced by a high-fat diet and propylthiouracil (PTU). We also examined whether the antihyperlipidemic effect correlats with the level of flavonoid. The antihiperlipidemic effect of the extracts was tested in white male Wistar rats fed with a high-fat (4 mL/200 g) and 0.01% PTU daily for 40 days consecutively. As a positive control, simvastatin (1.26 mg/kg BW) was used. The blood levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL was determined using ELISA. The total flavonoid content of water, ethanol and ethyl acetate extracts was measured using spectrophotometry after addition AlCl3. We found that the water, ethanol and ethyl acetate extract of breadfruit leaves exhibits antihyperlipidemic effect by lowering total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL levels and increasing the level of HDL. Compare to the water and ethanol extract, the ethyl acetate extract showed the highest antihyperlipidemic activity. The decreasing of triglycerides and LDL levels and increasing of HDL level but not the decreasing of cholesterol levels upon the treatment of ethyl acetate extracts have a positive correlation with flavonoid content.

Abstract
This study was carried out to investigate phytochemical screening of ethylacetate extract of Picria fel-terrae Lour. leaves (EEP) and cardioprotective effect against doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy in rats. Dry EEP was prepared from dry grounded leaves by cold maceration, and extract was given at dosage of 300 mg/kg bw, then it’s cardioprotective effects against doxorubicin (DOX) induced cardiotoxicity was evaluated. DOX was administered intraperitoneally to rats at dosage of 20 mg/bw once a day for two days. Cardioprotective effect was evaluated by measuring biomarkers troponin T (cTnT), CK-MB levels. Histopathology of rat’s heart tissue was also examined. Result of phytochemical screening of extract was found to contain flavonoids, tannins, glycosides, and saponins. Levels of cTnT and CK-MB in DOX group are significantly different from that in control group, EEP, EEP + DOX, vitamin E + DOX, and rutine + DOX (p <0.05). DOX significantly raised cTnT and CK-MB levels (p<0,05) but decreased after administration of vitamin E, rutin, and EEP. Histopathological analysis of rat’s heart tissue showed to resulted in myocytolysis with congestion of blood vessels, pyknosis, cytoplasmic vacuolization and fragmentation. Concomitant treatment with vitamin E, rutin, and EEP revealed normal muscle fiber. These results suggest that EEP has cardioprotective effect.

27. Investigation of Anti-inflammatory Activities of Curcuma aeruginosa Roxb. in Experimental Animals
Triastuti, A, Wibowo, A, Astuti, P
Abstract
Curcuma aeruginosa has been used empirically for asthma, scurvy, pain, and inflammation of uterus. The present study evaluated the anti-inflammatory activity of C. aeruginosa ethanolic extracts (CAE) in experimental animals. The topical anti-inflammatory activity was analyzed using croton oil-induced ear edema. Topical application of CAE (80 mg/ear, 160 mg/ear) reduced ear edema and pro-inflammatory cells (histological analysis) in the tissue and its activity was similar to hydrocortisone 1% (p>0.05). In the thioglycollate-induced peritonitis model, CAE at doses of 200 mg/kgBW and 400 mg/kgBW significantly inhibited leukocytes migration in balb/c mice although the activity was lower than indomethacin (10 mg/kgBW). These consistently results support the notion that C. aeruginosa can be used as potent anti-inflammatory agent.

Fuad Soegibudiono Wiradjaja, Teuku Nanda Saifullah Sulaiman, Abdul Rohman
Abstract
Development of meloxicam (MLX) oral dosage form has its own problem due to it’s poor water solubility and bitter taste. Several techniques have been used to improve the solubility and to mask the bitter taste of MLX, mainly by its complexation with cyclodextrins. The objective of the present work is to enhance the solubility of MLX and to prepare and characterize spray dried inclusion complex with β-cyclodextrin. Phase solubility study was done to analyze the influence of β-cyclodextrin on solubility of MLX. Inclusion complex of MLX- β-cyclodextrin was prepared in 1:2 molar ratio and conducted by spray drying method. Inclusion complex obtained was studied by organoleptic, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Phase solubility study shows that MLX solubility increase linearly with an increase in the concentration of  β-cyclodextrin. The addition of 3.48 mM β-cyclodextrin in phosphate buffer results in enhance of solubility of MLX about 25%. Furthermore, the addition of 31.75 mM β-cyclodextrin can enhance solubility of MLX up to 252%. Organoleptic analysis shows that inclusion complex generated a tasteless powder with an amoprhous and paler colour. DSC and FTIR analysis confirm the inclusion of MLX in the cyclodextrin cavity, even some functional groups of MLX are detected in the inclusion complex.
