Abstract : One of the factors contributing to irrational drug use is low medicine literacy in the community. This study aimed to conduct education intervention for improving medicine literacy among the community, particularly regarding antibiotics and self-medication. This study used one group pretest-posttest design conducted in Yogyakarta city, Indonesia. Purposive sampling was applied to select respondents for the study, which were women active as health cadres. The study began with instrument development to measure medicine literacy regarding antibiotics and self-medication and followed by the development of education material in forms of power point presentation and leaflet. Pretest-posttest to measure the medicine literacy were conducted before and after the intervention. The study involved 82 women as respondents. The mean scores of antibiotics literacy for pretest and posttest were 75.37±14.90 and 80.46±11.47, respectively. Meanwhile, the mean scores of self-medication literacy for pretest and posttest were 72.20±12.48 and 83.35±11.22, respectively. There were significant improvements in literacy regarding antibiotics and self-medication before and after the intervention (p=0.000). Some aspects of medicine literacy still need to be improved including interval and duration of antibiotics use, the indication of antibiotics, and the administration of some drugs due to the dosage forms for self-medication. This study concluded that education intervention using a presentation and leaflet could improve medicine literacy regarding antibiotics and self-medication. However, some aspects of knowledge need further improvement.

Abstract : Black glutinous rice and Fermented Black Glutinous Rice contain compounds that act as antioxidants, namely anthocyanin compounds. The purpose of this study was to determine the total anthocyanin concentration and antioxidant activity contained in black glutinous rice and Fermented Black Glutinous Rice. Samples of black glutinous rice and Fermented Black Glutinous Rice were extracted using methanol which was acidified with 1% HCL, then the samples were dried using freeze dry. The first study was conducted to identify anthocyanins by using color reagents, then determine the total anthocyanin based on the differential pH method and determine the antioxidant activity with the DPPH method to obtain IC50 values. Based on the research, the total anthocyanin obtained in black glutinous rice was 4,2582 mg/100 gram and antioxidant activity was 14.654,67 ppm, whereas the total anthocyanin in Fermented Black Glutinous Rice was 8,0989 mg/100 gram and antioxidant activity was 11.837,68 ppm. From these results, it can be concluded that Fermented Black Glutinous Rice has greater anthocyanin and antioxidant activity than black glutinous rice.

Abstract : Pharmacists are often faced situations that contradicted to the pharmacy code of ethics profession. This study was designed to observe the types of ethical dilemmas that occur in community pharmacies. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in Yogyakarta province, Indonesia. A survey was run in September to December 2019, during seminar meeting held by Indonesian Pharmacists Association involving 225 community pharmacists. A self-administered validated questionnaire included four parts: general characteristics of pharmacists, five scenarios on ethical issues, frequency in facing ethical problem, reasons why pharmacists compromise ethical problems. Data were collected, entered, and analyzed quantitatively using univariate analysis. Of 225 participants, the most frequent cases faced were that customer asks for an over-the-counter treatment that actually they did not really need (3.67 ± 1.56); the prescription states a specific brand of drug, but in stock was only generic available (3.43 ± 1.34); and patient asking for controlled medicines that tend to be mis-used (3.31 ± 1.32). Pharmacists’ reasons to compromise these issues were to satisfy patient’ expectation (45.33%), to respond doctor’s request (33.78%), secure their job (20%), and to meet target from employer (15.11%). This study revealed that need to improve public knowledge and awareness about the problem of drug use and the dangers of drugs for minimize the occurrence of ethical problems. Strengthening regulations about ethical issues is needed to assist pharmacists in decision-making and create a readiness for face problems related ethical dilemmas. On the other hand, promoting and training for pharmacists regarding code of ethics knowledge and awareness should be doing intensively.

Abstract : Open surgery and endovascular therapy are two commonly accepted methods of treatment in patients with extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) with different advantages and disadvantages. The purpose of this study was to compare the rate of vascular graft patency in open surgery with endovascular stent repair in patients with iliac artery occlusion. This was a cohort study. The study population was composed of patients with iliac artery occlusion who underwent open surgery or endovascular intervention for the iliac artery, who were followed up with evaluating the signs and symptoms of remission as well as stent or graft openness. Data analysis was performed on the ultrasound and CT scan using IBM SPSS Statistics 21. A total of 17 patients underwent open surgery and 20 patients under iliac angioplasty. On examination and ultrasound in Group I, 15 patients (88.2%) had an appropriate femoral pulse and Doppler ultrasound showed blood flow within the graft, and in Group II, 18 patients (90.0%) had an appropriate femoral pulse and Doppler ultrasound showed blood flow within stent. There was no significant difference patency between the two groups in graft or stent with a 29-month follow-up (p=1.00). Based on the results from the examination of the role of factors such as diabetes, hypertension, smoking, and drug use, these factors had no significant statistical effect on the intervention outcomes. Patients with acute aortoiliac obstruction (TASC C, D) who underwent open surgery and EVT, had similar results in terms of vascular openness at an approximately 2.5-year follow-up, and these results were independent of diabetes, hypertension, smoking, and drugs.

Abstract : In this study, we decided to evaluate the effect of Balloon angioplasty on the pressure of patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). Sixty four patients were enrolled in the study who had lower extremity ischemia and stenosis in knee arteries.Our data suggested that infrapopliteal angioplasty showed favorable clinical outcomes in terms of toe pressure improvement and demonstrated its feasibility as a primary choice of treatment in patients with CLI.
