Abstract

ABSTRACT: Cadmium (Cd) is a heavy metal compound which is often founded in the environment and food. It has a wide variety of negative effects on target exposed organs, such as blood. Cd increases the Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) which will lead to an increase in catalase (CAT) activity. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of Cd exposure on CAT activity in the rat ovary (Rattus norvegicus). It was an experimental laboratory using 2 groups. Control group P (0) was given 2 mL aquadest and treatment group P (1) was given Cd with 1,2 x 10-2 mg daily for 4 weeks. The results showed that the mean of the activity of CAT in the control group P(0) was 0,382 + 0,225 μU/mg while in the treatment group P(1) was 0,458 + 0,393 μU/mg. The statistical analysis test using unpaired t test showed an insignificant differences between those two groups with p = 0,599 (p > 0,05). It can be concluded that Cd does not have effect on activity of CAT in the rats’ blood. Keywords: cadmium, catalase activity, oxydative stress..ABSTRAK: Kadmium (Cd) adalah suatu senyawa logam berat yang sering terdapat pada lingkungan dan makanan.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Lead is still a major environmental and occupational health hazard, since it is extensively used in the production of paints, gasoline and cosmetics. This causes the metal to be ubiquitous in the environment, being found in the air, soil, and water, from which it can enter the human body by inhalation or ingestion. Absorbed lead is capable of altering the calcium levels in bone. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the effect of lead on bone calcium levels by measuring the reaction constant, Gibbs free energy, and enthalpy. METHODS This study was of pure experimental design using 100 male albino rats (Rattus norvegicus). The experimental animals were assigned by simple randomization to two groups, one group receiving lead acetate orally at a dosage of 100 mg/ kgBW, while the other group did not receive lead acetate. The intervention was given for 4 weeks and the rats were observed weekly for measurement of bone calcium levels by the permanganometric method. RESULTS This study found that k1 (hydroxyapatite dissociation rate constant) was 0.90 x 10-3 dt-1, and that k2 (hydroxyapatite association rate constant) was 6.16 x 10-3 dt-1 for the control group, whereas for the intervention group k1 = 26.20 x 10-3 dt-1 and k2 = 16.75 x 10-3 dt-1. Thermodynamically, the overall reaction was endergonic and endothermic (ΔG &gt; 0 and ΔH &gt; 0). CONCLUSIONS Lead exposure results in increased dissociation rate of bone in comparison with its association rate. Overall, the reaction was endergonic and endothermic (ΔG &gt; 0 and ΔH &gt; 0).

Abstract

ABSTRACT Background: Stunting or stunted nutritional status is a form of malnutrition according to WHO 2005 reference of standard deviation. Stunting can be assessed by measuring the value of height to age, characterized by stunted height growth. Caries is a tooth disease which starts with initial demineralization process. Stunting can increase the risk of caries because it also impairs functions of saliva as buffer, cleanser, anti-solvent, and oral anti bacterial substance. Purpose: This study in kindergarten children at Kecamatan Kertak Hanyar Kabupaten Banjar aimed to assess the relationship between stunted nutritional status (stunting) and number of caries. Methods: This study used an analytic observational with cross sectional approach. Samples were chosen using purposive sampling, amounted to 60 children and divided into two groups (30 children per group) of stunted nutritional status group and normal nutritional status group as comparison. Results: Caries index observation resulted in the value of 8,23 for stunted nutritional status group, which is higher than normal nutritional status group’s 3,3. Chi-square statistic analysis with confidence interval of 95% presented p value = 0,000 (p < 0,05) and indicated that there was a significant difference of caries index between stunted nutritional status group and normal nutritional status group. Conclusion: It can be concluded that there was a significant relation between stunted nutritional status (stunting) and number of caries in kindergarten children at Kecamatan Kertak Hanyar Kabupaten Banjar. Keywords: stunting, caries, salivaABSTRAK Latar Belakang: Stunting atau status gizi pendek adalah salah satu bentuk gizi kurang yang diukur berdasarkan standar deviasi referensi WHO tahun 2005. Stunting dapat dikukur dengan indikator pengukuran tinggi badan terhadap umur TB/U yang ditandai dengan pertumbuhan tinggi badan yang terhambat. Karies gigi adalah penyakit jaringan gigi yang diawali proses demineralisasi. Stunting dapat meningkatkan resiko terjadinya karies karena berkurangnya fungsi saliva sebagai sebagai buffer, pembersih, anti pelarut, dan antibakteri rongga mulut. Tujuan: Penelitian pada siswa-siswi taman kanak-kanak di Kecamatan Kertak Hanyar Kabupaten Banjar ini untuk mengetahui hubungan antara status gizi pendek (stunting) dengan tingkat karies gigi. Metode: Metode penelitian yang digunakan adalah observasional analitik dengan pendekatan (cross-sectional). Sampel dipilih secara Porposive Sampling sebanyak 60 orang, masing-masing 30 orang pada kelompok gizi stunting dan gizi normal sebagai pembanding. Hasil: Berdasarkan hasil penelitian indeks karies pada kelompok anak gizi stunting 8,23, lebih tinggi daripada kelompok anak gizi normal 3,3. Analisis uji statistik Chi-Square dengan tingkat kepercayaan 95% menunjukkan nilai p = 0,000 (p < 0,05) yaitu terdapat perbedaan bermakna antara indeks karies gigi pada anak dengan status gizi stunting dengan anak status gizi normal. Kesimpulan: Berdasarkan hasil penelitian ini dapat disimpulkan bahwa terdapat hubungan antara status gizi pendek (stunting) dengan tingkat karies gigi pada siswa-siswi taman kanak-kanak di Kecamatan Kertak Hanyar Kabupaten Banjar.
