Background: Hypertension or high blood pressure is an increase in systolic blood pressure of more than 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure of more than 90 mmHg in two measurements with an interval of five minutes in rest or quiet state. Hypertension in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is categorized in Xuan Yuan (vertigo) and Tou Tong (headache). Purpose: To determine the effect of acupuncture therapy using Fengchi (GB20), Taichong (LR3), Hegu (LI4) points and 2 additional points, namely Xuehai (SP10) and Chize (LU5) and herbs therapy for celery (Apium graveolens L.) and carrots (Daucus carota L.) for people with hypertension. Methods: Treatment of hypertension with acupuncture and herbs therapy. Acupuncture therapy was carried out at Fengchi (GB20), Taichong (LR3), Hegu (LI4) points with the principle of liver fire sedation and Xuehai (SP10) and Chize (LU5) with the tonification principle. In herbs therapy, patients were given fresh celery (Apium graveolens L.) and carrots (Daucus carota L.) which had a hypotensive effect. Results: Hypertension treatment with acupuncture therapy was given 12 times, 3 times a week. Herbs therapy was given for 4 weeks, taken once a day in the afternoon with a dose of 200 ml. This therapy could reduce the patient's blood pressure. Conclusion: Acupuncture therapy in Fengchi (GB20), Taichong (LR3), Hegu (LI4) Xuehai (SP10), Chize (LU5) plus fresh celery herbs (Apium graveolens L.) and carrots (Daucus carota L.) could reduce blood pressure and additional complaints in hypertensive patients

Abstract

Background: Inflammation is a normal process in response to injury, but causes problems for the patient, including the appearance of pain, swelling, or fever. Anti-inflammatory agents generally used for those conditions, have several side effects to patients. Purpose: The objective of this research was to find alternative anti-inflammatory agents, especially from natural sources. Eleutherine bulbosa (Mill.) Urb. knew as “Bawang Dayak” belong to family Iridaceae is one of the natural sources for anti-inflammatory agents. This plant is known as traditional medicine in East Kalimantan and used as material in this research. Method: The experimental method of anti-inflammatory measurement using membrane stabilization activity for E. Bulbosa ethanol bulbs extracts. Result: The results showed that significant differences of EC50(p < 0.05) were achieved between indomethacin (26.39 ± 2.91) as the positive control with E. Bulbosa (52.87 ± 2.29). EC50 of E. bulbosa showed the potential anti-inflammatory activities with similar effectiveness to half indomethacin concentration. Conclusion: It could be concluded that E. bulbosa could be further developed as a new natural source of the anti-inflammatory agents.

Abstract

Background: Patients with dengue fever with hemoconcentration will experience plasma tearing (loss of plasma protein) which will affect the value of the Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (LED). Plasma proteins that play a role in influencing the value of the Sedimentation Rate (LED) are fibrinogen and globulins. An erythrocyte sedimentation (LED) examination measures the degree of erythrocyte deposition in a blood sample over a period of time. LEDs are sensitive but not specific tests. Purpose: To determine the difference in LED values of DHF patients with hemoconcentration and not hemoconcentration. Methods: Observational analytic, 30 samples with criteria for dengue fever patients with hemoconcentration and not hemoconcentration were examined at the Clinical Pathology Laboratory of Haji Hospital Surabaya in March - April 2019. The study used an independent t test with SPSS 16.0 program to determine whether there were differences in LED values in dengue fever patients with hemoconcentration and not hemoconsetration. Results: The results of the Independent t test showed that there were significant differences between the results of the erythrocyte sedimentation rate in patients with dengue fever with hemoconcentration and not hemoconsetration with Sig. (2-failed) of 0.00 (p <0.005). Conclusion: There are significant differences in sediment rate results with the Westergreen blood method in patients with dengue fever who experience hemoconcentration and who do not experience hemoconcentration.

Abstract

Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the major causes of health burden worldwide, especially in lower middle-income countries. TB is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) and characterized by severe condition incuding coughing and fever. Purpose: To review the current methods for detection of TB using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). Review: several studies have been done to give valuable insight into TB transmission, diagnosis, and treatment, however research  is constantly  needed  to decrease the incidence of eradicate TB. This infectious disease still give big health problem in all over the world by being second in causing high mortality rates after HIV/AIDS.  A specific, sensitive, rapid and cheap method for TB and other mycobacteria diagnosis in clinical specimen is a desperate needed in the laboratory diagnosis and hence management of tuberculosis. PCR as one of nucleic acid amplification assays have revolutionized MTB detection. Since it was first invented in fifteen years ago, it?s been through many developments. Conclusion: PCR  is one of the most specific and sensitive method currently available for TB diagnosis that can also detect in in all types of specimens obtained from TB patients.
