Efek Antihipertensi Tumbuhan Tali Putri (Cassytha filiformis L.) pada Tikus Hipertensi Yang Diinduksi Prednison dan Garam

A study of the antihypertensive effect of Cassytha filiformis L. defatted extract on the hypertensive rats has been carried out. The study was conducted on 30 male Sprague-Dawley rats induced by Prednisone-NaCl for 14 days to obtain hypertensive rats. All rats were anesthetized to perform direct blood pressure measurement and divided into control group, extract-treated groups (5, 10 and 20 mg/kg), and tempol group. Each rat received three repetitive doses administered intravenously in one hour interval. During each dose interval, the systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), mean arterial pressure (MAP), and heart rate (HR) were measured. All cardiovascular data were presented as mean of percentage change ± SEM. The data were analyzed by three-way ANOVA and Tukey’s HSD. The significance level was taken at P<0.05. The study showed that the defatted extract of C. filiformis decreased SBP, DBP, MAP, and HR significantly. The extract at the dose of 5 mg/kg and tempol 100 mcmol/kg showed insignificant difference in lowering blood pressure.
