Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the bacteriostatic and bactericidal activity of Acalypha indica L. extract against Shigella dysenteriae type 1 bacteria in vitro. This research is a laboratory experimental study consisting of six concentration treatments, namely: (K = 0/ml, P1 = 100/ml, P2 = 200/ml, P3 = 400/ml, P4 = 800/ml, P5 = 1600 mg/ml ), and five replications each. The results showed that the herbal extract of Acalypha indica L. was bacteriostatic (inhibiting) at a concentration of 400 mg/mm, and bactericidal (killing) the bacteria Shigella dysenteriae type 1, which was tested in vitro at a concentration of at least 800 mg/ml. It is necessary to study the effect of Acalypha indica L. herbal extract from Timor in the serum of Rattus norwegicus against bacteria that cause bloody diarrhea (EHEC O157:H7, and Shigella dysenteriae type 1), MRSA bacteria, and other pathogenic bacteria.
