Abstract

Objective: To analyze the effectiveness of phosphorus 32 (32P) application compared to 10 mg/cc triamcinolone acetonide (TA) intralesional injection in keloid.Methods: A single blind (evaluator blind) randomized clinical trial on 52 keloids was conducted during the period of May – August 2014 in Tumor and Skin Surgery Clinic, Department of Dermatovenereology and Department of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung.Results: Lesions were divided into two groups with each group consisted of 26 lesions. Group A was treated with 32P application whereas group B was treated with 10 mg/cc TA intralesional injection. Flattening of the lesion of more than 50% was higher in the group treated with 32P application (76.9%) compared to the group that was treated with 10 mg/cc TA intralesional injection (57.7%) on the 8th week, but the difference was not statistically significant (p>0.05).Conclusions: Based on the statistical analysis, the application of 32P was as effective as the intralesional injection of 10 mg/cc TA for keloid lesions.Keywords: Flattening, keloid, phosphorus 32, triamcinolone acetonide DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v4n1.683

Abstract

Background: Jatropha multifida is one of the medicinal plants commonly found in Indonesia. This plant is used in the community to heal open wounds, however, scientific evidence is lacking. The two most common bacteria which often cause infection in open wounds are Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This study aimed to determine the antibacterial effect of J. multifida leaf infusion towards S. aureus and P. Aeruginosa in vitro.Methods: This was an experimental laboratory study conducted at the Microbiology Laboratory, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Padjadjaran in 2014. The modified Kirby-Bauer antimicrobial diffusion procedure on Mueller-Hinton agar was applied to determine the inhibitory zone. In determining the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and the minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC), the modified technique of tube dilution was used.Results: The results of this research showed that the infusion of J. multifida leaves had inhibitory effects on the growth of S. aureus dan P. aeruginosa at the concentration of 100% and 75%. The minimum inhibition concentration and minimum bactericidal concentration could not be determined.Conclusions: There is evidence confirming the bacteriostatic antibacterial effect of J. multifida leaves which inhibits the growth of S. aureus and P. Aeruginosa. Further study is needed to explore J. multifida leaves.
