Lecturer and researcher Department of Pharmacy Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences University of Indonesia, Azizahwati, diversifying antihypertensive drug dosage form of herbal capsules avocado leaves.

Azizahwati, Wednesday (15/6), presented the Final Report of Research Grants, University of Indonesia (UI) in 2010 at the UI, Depok, West Java. He examined the encapsulation of avocado leaf extract (Persea americana Mill) with a team from the Department of Pharmacology Faculty of Medicine, UI, namely H Purwaningsih Erni, Endang Hanani, and Sutriyo. They obtained the UI research grants in 2010 amounted to Rp 164.8 million.

According to the Head of Sub-Industry Research and Incubator Yasman UI, UI research grants from the Community Fund Program are drawn from the operational cost of education (BOP) is submitted by each student enrolled. The year 2010 provided grants for 199 research activities.

Categories of activities include initial research, graduate, seeded, and multidisciplinary. Large fund of Rp 40 million (preliminary research) to Rp 175 million (multidisciplinary research). "The principal investigator is required from the UI," said Yasman.

Yasman admit, most of the research done to satisfy the curiosity of the professors or researchers, so the percentage of research results that can be applied to the public and the industry is still relatively small. However, their research team Azizahwati prove quite applicable to provide packaging alternatives and herbal medicinal products.

To be suffering from hyperlipidemia, induced murine yolk or other animal fat to the body. The condition of mice obtained by hypertension induce salt.

Dryers are used for avocado leaves is Avicel PH 101 with a ratio of 1:0,75 and the addition of Aerosil 8.3 percent.

The use of Avicel PH 102 is mentioned as the best formula because it has a mass density (bulk density) and the greatest flow rate. The result contains the index of compressibility, moisture content, and destroyed the small time.

Preparation of avocado leaf extract made by maceration with 70 percent alcohol. Maceration is the soaking to release the active compound in avocado leaf powder. A total of 300 grams of powder of avocado leaves macerated with alcohol 70 per cent, to reach 29 per cent yield.
