Hepatitis is an inflammatory disease of liver cells that is contagious in the low category, the cause of it is bacteria, viruses, drugs and alcohol. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of boiled figs leaf (Ficus Carica L) and Rosy periwinkle (Catharantus roseus ) in reducing SGOT and SGPT levels. The subjects of this study were 30 male Wistar strain rats with age of 2-3 months, body weight 180-200 grams. Rats were divided into 3 groups; treatment groups, negative control groups and positive control groups. The treatment group and positive control group were induced paracetamol 120 mg / day orally for 7 days. The treatment group was given 0.4 grams boiled figs leaf (Ficus Carica L) and 2.6 grams boiled rosy periwinkle (Catharantus roseus) it given as much as 3.6 cc / day orally for 7 days. Data were analyzed with SPSS version 24, one way ANOVA test was performed to compare SGOT and SGPT levels. The results showed there were significant differences in SGOT levels between the treatment group, the positive control group, and the negative control group (p <0.05) and there was a significant difference in the SGPT value between the treatment group and the positive control group (p <0.05), while the negative control group and the treatment group there was no significant difference (p = 0.75). The conclusion of this study was the water extraction of figs leaf (Ficus Carica L), Rosy periwinkle (Catharantus roseus) had an effect in decreasing the SGOT and SGPT values of male wistar strain rats induced by paracetamol.
