Keywords:Paracetamol, SGOT, SGPT, Catharanthus roseus, Muntingia calabura L.
Acute hepatitis is inflammation that occurs in the liver caused by infection, drugs, autoimmune, or alcohol consumption and causes an increase in SGOT and SGPT levels. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of boiled Rosy Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus) and Cherry (Muntingia calabura L.) on decreasing serum levels of SGOT and SGPT. The objects in this study were 30 male Wistar Strain rats aged 2-3 months with a weight of 180-200 grams. Rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: the treatment group, positive control, and negative control. All rats were adapted for 7 days. The liver of treatment group and the positive control group were induced Paracetamol 120 mg/day orally for 7 days. Boiled water of 2.6 grams of Rosy Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus) and 5 grams of Cherry (Muntingia calabura L.) as much as 3.6 cc/day orally for 7 days was given to the treatment group. The Data were analyzed with SPSS version 24, One Way ANOVA test was performed to compare SGOT SGPT levels. The results showed a significant difference in SGOT levels between the treatment group, positive control group and negative control group (p<0.05) and there were significant differences in SGPT levels between the treatment group and positive control group (p<0.05). The conclusion of this study is that the boiled water of Rosy Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus) and Cherry (Muntingia calabura L.) have an effect on decreasing SGOT and SGPT serum in male Wistar Strain rats of acute hepatitis model.
