Effect of Pirdot Leaf Extract (Saurauia Vulcani Korth ) on SGPT and SGOT Value in Wistar Strain Rats Induced by Salmonella Typhimurium

Haslinda Haslinda, Yunita Sari Pane.


Background: Typhoid fever is an acute disease caused by Salmonella typhimurium that can invade the liver and cause symptoms of hepatomegaly,jaundice.Biochemically, these symptoms can be assessed by seeing the SGPT and SGOT levels increase. Pirdot Leaf is an herbal plant found in the Toba area of North Sumatra which has a lot of bioactive potential,namely flavonoids,steroids, saponins. Flavonoids are active substances that can overcome the inflammatory process, it is expected that the administration of Pirdot leaf extract can reduce levels of SGOT and SGPT in mice induced Salmonella Typhimurium. Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of ethanol extract of pirdot leaves on SGPT and SGOT values in rat models induced by Salmonella typhimurium. Methods: This study used 32 samples divided into four groups namely: Normal group, Negative group, Positive group and Treatment group. Results: The results were obtained for normal control SGPT (27,85) negative control (37,80) positive control (27,30) and for Dick treatment (26,21). The results of the study for SGPT obtained normal control (73,18), negative control (120,23), positive control (92,89), and treatment control (78,68). Conclusion: Giving ethanol extract of pirdot leaves effect on reducing SGPT and SGOT levels in wistar strain mice induced Salmonella typhimurium.

Key words: Pirdot leaf extract, SGOT, SGPT, Flavonoid, Salmonella typhimurium.
