Abstract :

Typhoid fever is still one of endemic disease in Indonesia. This systemic infectious disease caused by infection of bacteria Salmonella typhii. Earthworms are animal that are alot and easily found and has a cheap price. Earthworms are used for an alternative medicine for many diseases, including typhoid fever This study aims to show whether or not the effect of antibacterial activity from the extract of earthworms (Lumbricus sp.) against bacteri Salmonella typhii in vitro. This study was one of experimental laboratory research with 0,5 mcFarland isolates of bacteri Salmonella typhii that use concentration of the extract of earthworms Salmonella typhii are 50 mg/mL, 25 mg/mL, 12,5 mg/mL, 6,25 mg/mL, were tested with use the method of dilution plate in order. Observations are made by the growth of bacteria Salmonella typhii in Mueller Hinton plates after incubation for 24 hours at 370 celcius. The result showed that the extract of earthworms (Lumbricus sp.) until the concentration is 3200 mg/mL did not have the effect of antibacterial activity against bacteri Salmnonella typhii. In conclusion, based on the result of this study can be concluded that the extract of earthworm (Lumbricus sp.) until the concentration is 3200 mg/mL did not have the effect of antibacterial activity against bacteri Salmnonella typhii, so it is proposed to do further research to test microbacterial activity of the extract of earthworm (Lumbricus sp.).
