THE POTENTIAL STUDY OF FLAVONOID COMPOUNDS OF LIME PEELS AGAINST PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA ISOLATED FROM PUSEvy Ratnasari Ekawati, 2Win Darmanto and Sri Puji Astuti Wahyuningsih
Giving an antimicrobial chemical is often used in the healing process of the skin lesions of infection. The bacteria that dominate in lesions of skin infections include Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Antibiotic resistance against pathogens is increasing, so many researchers concentrate on doing research to find antimicrobial plant. This study aimed to test the potential of flavonoids in lime peel against Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from pus on the skin lesions. This research was experimental laboratory. Samples collected from the plantations lime Bumi Aji, Batu and pus samples taken from three peoples with lesions of skin infections. Lime peels extract concentration of 80% and a 100% was response inhibits the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa with sensitive categories. Kruskal-Wallis test results obtained significance value of 0.005 ï£ï ï¡ï ï½0.05, meaning that treatment of various concentrations of lime peel extract significant influence on the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Pus from three samples, one sample code Pa2 were identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa with similarity index > 99.9%.
