Efforts to change the healthcare should be accelerated. This can be achieved thorugh dissemination of diagnostic method, such as improve the accuracy for serum magnesium analysis, modified media for culture of pathogenic bacteria; and methods for evaluating antimicrobial activity. Parasite and histologyical examination may also provide clues to timely diagnostic of disease. Furthermore, in silico medicine are important to support the diagnostics and to encourage the use of simulation in the development of drugs.


Ability of Ethanol Extract from Ajwa and Sukkari Dates (Phoenix dactylifera L.) in Inhibiting the Growth of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Putra Rahmadea Utami, Sri Indrayati, Nur Hayatang

Staphylococcus aureus is a pathogenic bacterium that spread throughout the world and still a problem that continues to increase both in hospitals and the community. Infections due to S. aureus usually treated with antibiotics, but in some cases, several strains of S. aureus found to be resistant to antibiotics, such as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aur

Chemometric Analysis of Serum Magnesium Calculations Using Mg-Xylidyl Blue-I Method Based on Molar Absorptivity
Ally Kafesa, Nadira Nur Hajah Lutfi, Cep Wahyu

The concentration of magnesium is determined based on the absorbance of the Mg-Xylydil Blue-I complex solution use spectrophotometer. Based on the Lambert-Beer rule, the calculation of sample concentration is based on the formula A = Ԑ. b. C. Generally, the thickness of the cuvette (b) and the molar absorptivity (Ԑ) factor will be ignored because it is considered to have a fixed value, theref

Comparation Between Mac conkey and Coconut Water Medium as a Growth Medium for Escherichia coli
Endah Prayekti, Suliati Suliati, Dwi Agustin Wulandari

Escherichia coli is the bacteria that can cause diarrhea in humans and often used as a parameter of stool environmental pollution. Culture of E. coli from the sample often requires Mac Conkey as commercial media which is able to distinguish it from other bacteria in the Enterobacteriaceae group. Commercial media such as Mac Conkey certainly has a price that is quite expensive

In Silico Analysis of Antiviral Activity and Pharmacokinetic Prediction of Brazilein Sappan Wood (Caesalpinia sappan L.) Against SARS-CoV-2 Spike Glycoproteins
Dwi Krihariyani, Edy Haryanto, Retno Sasongkowati

Brazilein is one of the secondary sappan wood metabolites which can be used empirically as an antivirus. The SARS-CoV-2 spike (S) glycoproteins play significant roles in attaching and entering the virus into the host cell. This study aims to predict the antiviral activity and pharmacokinetic properties of brazilein of the sappan wood against the in-silico SARS-CoV-2 S glycoproteins with vitamin

Liver Histopathological Change and Malondialdehyde Level of Rattus Norvegicus on Administration of Curcuma Zedoaria and Paracetamol Toxic Dose
Putu Oky Ari Tania, Puja Ayu Misuari, Satya Yudhayana, Ketut Ayesha Edelwise Prayoga

High doses of paracetamol create necrosis in the liver and produce free radicals. When liver function decreased in a long time, it will lead to severe liver damage and it will be irreversible. Rhizome of Curcuma zedoaria has the potential effect as an antioxidant, it is assumed that  its properties inhibit the formation of free radicals which formed from toxic doses of paracetamol. Th

Relation of Parasites in Soil with The Existence of Parasites on Farmer's Nails
Edza Aria Wikurendra, Merry Crismiati, Globila Nurika

Worms is an infectious disease caused by parasitic worms that can endanger health. Worms that often infect and have a very detrimental impact are soil-borne worm infections or Soil-Transmitted Helminths. Soil-Transmitted Helminths still considered insignificant because it is considered not to cause harm or cause death. This study aims to determine the relationship of parasites in the soil with

The Antibacterial Activity of Thermoactinomyces sp. (H24) Extract Against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus
Julia Nanda Puspita, Rikhsan Kurniatuhadi, Rahmawati Rahmawati

Bacteria of the genus Thermoactinomyces have the ability to produce antibacterial bioactive compounds. This bioactive compound can be used for combating diarrheal agents such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. This study aims to determine the antibacterial activity of the metabolite extract from Thermoactinomyces sp. (H24) against Esc

The Potential Use of EDTA as an Alternative to Defibrination in Preparing Blood Agar Plates with Human AB Blood Type on Staphylococcus aureus Culture
Dora Dayu Rahma Turista, Eka Puspitasari, Fanny Kurnanda Razvi

Blood Agar Plates (BAP) are composed of blood as one of the compositions. Sheep’s blood is usually used, but since it is difficult to be obtained, human AB blood type was used as an alternative. In preparing BAP, blood is defibrinated to lyse the blood clotting factors. Blood clots can also be prevented by adding anticoagulants, such as ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). This study aims
