Rina Andriyani, Chandra Risdian, Zalinar Udin


Drug discovery for cancer medication is the most important effort that researcher do at this time. Indonesia bio diversities have possibility as a cancer medicine sources. Finding a herbal medicine for cancer treatment is a first step to find a right cancer medicine in the future. This research has already completed for the earlier another research. Some fractions of Hedyotis corymbosa extract has been analyzed using Sulforhodamine B method with UV wavelength 515 nm against T47D cell line, a human breast cancer. There are Hexane extract, Methylene chloride extract and Ethyl acetate extract, and give inhibitory concentration 50 (IC50)  of 33.45 µg/ml, 54.59 µg/ml and 52.58 µg/ml, respectively. Ethanolic extract, itself has IC50 of 61.57 µg/ml, whereas IC50 value of Cisplatinum is  9.63 µg/ml. There is a difference between the ethanolic extracts with the other fraction.
