Abstract:
There are a number of plants in Indonesia containing dyes, such as turmeric, 'temulawak', Natal indigo (Indigofera arrecta), Pleomele angustifolia, Syzygium polyanthum, annatto (Bixa orellana), Gordonia excelsa and Bischofia javanica. They have been used for a long time for colouring handicrafts in Tasikmalaya, West Java. However, before they are used extensively, a research study is needed. This is primarily important as the synthetic dyes commonly used nowadays have been found to be harmful to human being and the environment as well.

Research Institute for Spices and Medicinal Crops (RISMC); Bogor; Indonesia

Buletin Penelitian Tanaman Rempah dan Obat [Spices and Medicinal Crops Research Bulletin] 8 (1): 30-38 (1993)

Abstract:
Effect of several plant growth regulators (PGR) and mulching treatments on vegetative growth of turmeric were investigated in the Cimanggu Experimental Garden, Bogor, from December 1990 to May 1991. The experiment was conducted in a Randomized Block Design with 14 treatments and 3 replications. The plant growth regulators' treatments consist of immersing the rhizomes in the solution of IBA 200 and 400 mg/l, etephon 250 and 500 ml/l, nitroaromatic 1 and 2 ml/l, and untreated rhizomes. Each treatment was combined with mulching and without mulching applications. The results showed that immersing the rhizomes into nitroaromatic 1 ml/l + mulch gave better effect on the vegetative growth of turmeric, meanwhile application of IBA 200 mg/l + mulch gave better result on the yield of rhizomes.

Buletin Agronomi [Agronomy Bulletin] 21 (2): 59-63 (1993)

Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to determine the optimum levels of stable manure and population of turmeric intercropped with sweet corn. The study were carried out at the farmers field at Cipenjo, from March to October 1990. A Randomized Block Design was used, whereby the manure of 0 (M0), 15 (M1), 30 (M2) and 45 ton/ha (M3) applied at the planting date of turmeric were the first factor. The second was the population of turmeric at 80,000 (P1), 120,000 (P2) and 160,000 plants/ha (P3), planted between 100 cm x 25 cm rows of corn (population of 40, 000 plants/ha). Sweet corn was harvested at 69 days after planting and turmeric at 26 weeks after planting. The manures significantly increased the number of tillers, number of leaves and leaf area of turmeric. Higher populations of turmeric produced bigger LAI at 3-5 months after planting. Significant interaction between manure and population treatments were noted in fresh weight of rhizome/hill and turmeric yield per hectare. Combination of 45 ton/ha of manures and 160,000 turmeric plants/ha gave the highest yield of 29.93 ton/ha, better than local production. Manures for turmeric also resulted in higher yield of sweet corn, from 8.52 ton/ha to 10.57-11.85 ton fresh ear/ha.

National Crop Protection Center; University of the Philippines at Los Banos; College; Laguna; Philippines

Abstracts of papers presented at the 24th Annual Scientific meeting of the Pest Management Council of the Philippines Inc., Cebu City, May 4-7, 1993; p 45

Abstract:
The reproductive toxicity effects of Curcuma longa on female albino rats were evaluated. The parameters evaluated were general reproductive performance, estrous cycle and fetal development. Various doses were prepared by using corn oil as the carrier material and was administered by stomach incubation in a constant volume of 10 ml/kg body weight. It was observed that the crude extract caused significant resorption of embryos and decreased the number of surviving pupae. It was also significantly decreased ovarian weight. Weights of the adrenal glands were found to be higher among treated animals. The test extract, however, exerted no major teratogenic effect on the offspring of treated pregnant dams and exerted no significant influence on estrous cycle. The test material exhibited some signs of being maternally toxic; this was manifested by wavy ribs and some fused sternal bone and pupa born from treated dams.

National Crop Protection Center; University of the Philippines at Los Baños; College; Laguna; Philippines

Abstracts of papers presented at the 24th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Pest Management Council of the Philippines Inc., Cebu City, May 4-7, 1993; p 48

Abstract:
The effects of Curcuma longa crude extract on the reproduction of male albino rats were evaluated. Petroleum ether extract was used as the test material. The rats were given daily doses of the test materials at 64 mg/kg body weight (high dose), 32 mg/kg body weight (moderate dose) and 16 mg/kg bw (low dose) for a period of 78 days. Various doses were prepared using corn oil as the carrier material and administered to the rats by stomach incubation in a constant volume of 10 ml/kg bw. Curcuma longa extract was found to cause a significant reduction of sperm motility and sperm counts among treated rats. Higher percentage of abnormal sperms among individuals given the high and moderate doses was also detected. It was found that the test material exerted significant influence on the body weight of animals. Weight of accessory glands was also affected. There was no effect, however, on breeding performance and blood count on treated rats. Histological evaluation of the tissues suggested that Curcuma longa extract may exert influence on the maturation of sperm cells among animals given the high and moderate doses.

The Philippine Journal of Science 123 (2): 105-119 (1994)

Abstract:
Estrogenecity of lyophilized Curcuma longa at six dose levels were assayed on estrous cycle, uterine weight and histology of liver and uterus and on some of the estrogen independent parameters, e.g. hematological factors of the female castrated albino rats. Curcuma longa doses of 8.7, 10.9 and 13.8 g/kg influenced vaginal pattern smears while the group given 8.7 g/kg showed significant persistent estrous phase and increased uterine weight similar to the findings obtained from estrogen treated rats. The luminal epithelium and the myometrium of the uterus at this dose also showed thickening as well as the presence of developed endometrial glands. Animals treated with 8.7 g/kg of Curcuma longa was the only dose which exhibited normal RBC count, while the rest of the doses produced increased red blood cell count with increasing extract concentration. Histological analysis showed normal hepatic structures in the treated animals.

Halijah, I; Zubaidah, AR
Department of Botany; University of Malaya; Kuala Lumpur; Malaysia

Malaysian Journal of Science 10: 25-29 (1988)

Abstract:
Four Zingiberaceae species were screened for mineral content (K, Na, Ca, Mg, Fe, and Zn) using various plant parts (roots, rhizomes, leaves and inflorescence). Of the macrominerals, potassium was the highest (4.89 g/100 g) as shown by the roots of Curcuma longa (synonym: Curcuma domestica). This was followed by Mg (1.20 g/100 g in leaves of Kaempferia galanga), Ca (1.14 g/100 g in leaves of Alpinia galanga), Na (1.130 g/100 g in roots of Kaempferia galanga). Of the two microminerals, ferrum content was quite high (78.30 mg/100g in roots of Kaempferia galanga, 67.10 mg/l00 g in rhizomes of Etlingera elatior) while Zn content was relatively much lower (highest was 14.30 mg/100 g in leaves of Kaempferia galanga). Of the four species studied,. Kaempferia galanga, has the overall highest mineral content, particularly the roots and leaves.

Screening for anti-tumour promoters in Zingiberaceae through inhibition of EBV-EA, induced by TPA


Vimala, S; Norhanom, AW; Yadav, M
Medicinal Plant Division; Forest Research Institute Malaysia; Kepong; Kuala Lumpur

13th Seminar on Natural Products, 5-6 August 1997; Forest Research Institute Malaysia; Kepong; Malaysia

Abstract:
The Zingiberaceae family has had an extremely long use in Malaysian traditional medicine. It has been administered extensively to treat many ailments including various malignancies. In this study, several Zingiberaceae species commonly found as ingredients in traditional medicine were screened for anti-tumour promoter activity. The Zingiberaceae rhizomes were extracted using three different solvents, petroleum ether, chloroform and ethanol, successively. Concentrations ranging from 20-640 µg/ml were tested using a short term assay. The assay involved the inhibition of Epstein Barr Virus Early Antigen (EBV-EA) activation in Raji cel1s, induced by 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA). In earlier studies, it was recognised that the inhibition of enhanced phospholipid metabolism and EBV-EA activation induced by tumour promoters in vitro correlated well with their anti-tumour promoting effects in vivo. The inhibition was detected by the indirect Immunofluorescent Assay (IFA). Seven Zingiberaceae rhizomes were found to demonstrate anti-tumour promoter activity. They were, Curcuma domestica, Curcuma xanthorrhiza, Zingiber cassumunar, Zingiber zerumbet, Zingiber officinale, Zingiber officinale (red variety) and Kaempferia galanga. Among these seven gingers, Curcuma domestica, Zingiber cassumunar and Zingiber zerumbet exhibited very high activity. These three species inhibited the expression of EBV-EA at the lowest concentration used, i.e., 20 µg/ml. Zingiber officinale, Zingiber officinale (red variety) and Curcuma xanthorrhiza possessed moderate activity while Kaempferia galanga demonstrated partial activity. These naturally occurring anti-tumour promoter compounds in Zingiberaceae could contribute to the development of cancer prevention methods at the tumour promoting stage. However, further investigations are required to identify the active compounds and to demonstrate similar activity in in vivo experiments before an overall strategy can be formulated for the dietary control of malignancies.

Plant Resources of South-East Asia No 13. Spices


de Guzman, CC (ed); Siemonsma, JS (ed)
Department of Horticulture; College of Agriculture; University of the Philippines at Los Ba¤os; the Philippines

Low-price, paperback edition; Bogor; PROSEA Foundation; 1999; 400 p

Abstract:
This volume deals with the spices of South-East Asia. Spices are defined as those aromatic plants and their parts, fresh or dried, whole or ground, that are primarily used to impart flavour and fragrance to foods and drinks. The term is used in a wide sense and includes the culinary herbs. The volume complements the PROSEA volume 'Essential-oil plants' that deals with aromatic plants whose main use is for the extraction and use of essential oils. Spices are indispensable in the culinary art, used to create dishes that reflect the history, the culture and the geography of a country. Well-known examples are curry powder, houng-liu (five-spice powder), pizza herbs and 'fines herbes'. Spices, spice oils and spice oleoresins are also indispensable in the food and beverage manufacturing industry, the perfumery and cosmetic industry and the pharmaceutical industry. Some spices and derivatives possess antioxidant and antibiotic properties, which has increased interest in the commercial exploitation of aromatic plants for food preservation and crop protection. With the growing demand for natural and organic products and the increasing clamour to dispense with synthetic flavours and artificial food colouring, the future for spices seems bright. In this volume, 61 important spices are treated in 50 papers, and 65 species of minor importance are described briefly. A further 150 species, not primarily but secondarily used as a spice, are listed. The introductory chapter deals with general aspects of spices. A glossary is included to explain the terms used. Two indexes, of scientific and vernacular plant names, are provided.

Abstract:
An ethnomedical study was conducted in Sirisurak village, Siberut, Mentawai Islands, in July 1992. A traditional healer was consulted and the plant species regarded as medicines by the traditional healer ("Sikerei") were collected. An inventory of medicinal plants was also made inside Tei-tei Batti Nature Reserve near Sirisurak village to find out diversity and potential of the medicinal plants (in the reserve). The Mentawaian traditional way of life is tied up with the surrounding environment. The wealthiness of traditional therapy reflects the close affinity with nature, resulted most probably among other things from a long history of geographic isolation. The study revealed the occurrence of at least 60 plant species utilized as medicines in Sirisurak village, as indicated by the "Sikerei". The plant parts of two or more species were mixed to cure various diseases. About 44 different mixtures were commonly used in the traditional healing to cure about 20 diseases. Diversity of medicinal plants was quite high, represented about 40% of all plant species in the study plots in Tei-tei Batti Forest Reserve near Sirisurak. Some species were found quite abundant while some others were hardly found. There are many species utilized in the traditional therapy in Sirisurak which are also traditionally used in Java, including Phyllanthus fraternus, Urena lobata, Merremia peltata, Litsea elliptica, Justicia gendarussa and Abelmoschus moschatus.

Kasno; Tjitrosoedirdjo, SS; Sunjaya; Aryanti, NS
BIOTROP Special Publication 58: 129-136 (1996)

Abstract:
Preferential test of mottled waterhyacinth weevil (Neochetina eichhorniae) was carried out on some plant species namely, ginger (Zingiber officinale), turmeric (Curcuma longa), galanga (Kaempferia galanga), red leaved and green leaved edible canna (Canna indica); while waterhyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) was used as control plant. The results indicated that under free choice condition the weevil feed on waterhyacinth and edible canna leaves. However, waterhyacinth was much preferred than the edible canna leaves. Further survival test on edible canna plants indicated that the adult weevils may survive by feeding on canna plants. However, the weevil will not undergo its complete life cycle on canna plants. Therefore, edible canna plants will only be temporary alternative host for adult weevil of Neochetina eichhorniae. The results of field survey in West Java showed that Neochetina eichhorniae was found in Bogor, Jakarta, Karawang, Sukamandi, Subang and Purwakarta. However, the role of the weevil in controlling waterhyacinth is still very low.

Abstract:
The research proved that the rhizomes of turmeric contains antibacterial compounds, i.e. essential oils (1.3-6%) and curcumin (0.5-6%). The essential oils and terpenoid compounds are capable to cause damage to cell membrane or to associated enzyme protein and consequently inhibit cell growth. Curcumin is one of the phenolic compounds capable for disturbing the permeability of cytoplasm membrane and causing the cell nutrients leaking, and gradually inhibit the growth of bacteria. The activity of curcumin was affected by pH, alkyl substitute, halogen and length of aliphatic chains. Turmeric affects acid production by lactobacilli and has bactericidal effects on gram positive bacteria (Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus bulgaris, Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus megaterium). It acts also as antibacteria against Escherichia coli the causal agent of diarrhoea.

Abstract:
Temu glenyeh (Curcuma soloensis) planted by farmers in the Kalibogo village, Grogol Subdistrict, Kediri in the valley of Wilis mountain. The plant is used as traditional medicine and sold to middle man at low prices. The rhizome cross section of temu glenyeh is similar to that of Curcuma longa (turmeric) but has a larger diameter. TLC (thin layer chromatography) analysis showed that temu glenyeh contains curcuminoid, similar to turmeric rhizome (curcumin, desmethoxy curcumin, bedesmethoxy curcumin) but lower in content. Its essential oil which was distilled according to MMI method was 4.6 - 0.58% from GC (gas chromatography) - MS (mass spectrometry) and 3D-GC-MS analyses, the oil contains tumerosol and arturmeron, which are also found in turmeric oil, further it also contains xanthorthyzol and iso-furanogermacrene which is so far only found in temulawak oil. Although from phytochemistry and biodiversity point of view the species should be conserved, care must be taken that this species should not be mixed up with Curcuma longa or Curcuma xanthorrhiza especially as an adulterant.

Insecticidal and fungicidal action of some indigenous plant extracts against cotton pests


Solsoloy, AD; Cacayorin, ND; Cano, LC
Cotton Research Journal 4 (1 & 2): 1-11 (1991)

Abstract:
The crude active compounds extracted from several indigenous plants were evaluated for their insecticidal action on Helicoverpa armigera, and fungicidal action on Glomerella gossypii, Sclerotium rolfisii, Diplopdia gossypina and Helminthosporium gossypii from September 1984 to April 1986 at the Cotton Research and Development Institute, Batac, Ilocos Norte. The crude Azadirachta indica seed oil, acetone-extracted Jatropha curcas seed oil and petroleum ether-extracted Curcuma longa tuber oil had ovicidal action on Helicoverpa armigera eggs. The petroleum ether extracted Piper betle oil stimulated oviposition of Helicoverpa armigera moths while its volatile oil and the petroleum ether-extracted Acorus calamus oil inhibited oviposition. Both the petroleum ether-derived and volatile Curcuma longa oils had inhibitory effects. However, the different plant extracts did not have antifeeding effect under laboratory conditions. Field evaluation showed that the aqueous extracts of Curcuma longa, Tinospora crispa and Azadirachta indica had comparable insecticidal action with the check insecticide, Deltamethrin 2.5 EC at low level of Helicoverpa armigera infestation. The petroleum ether-derived Acorus calamus oil inhibited the growth of Glomerella gossypii but at a lesser degree than the check fungicide, Orthocide 50 WP. Acetone-derived Jatropha curcas and Calophyllum inophyllum oils considerably inhibited the growth of Sclerotium rolfsii. Diplopdia gossypina and Helminthosporium gossypii were not controlled by any of the plant extracts.

Deterrent effect of yellow ginger (Curcuma longa L.), betel (Piper betle L.) and sweet-flag (Acorus calamus L.) extracts on feeding and oviposition behaviour of some insect pests of cotton


Solsoloy, A; Morallo-Rejesus, B
Cotton Research Journal 1 (2): 135-145 (1988)

Abstract:
The deterrent effect of the crude and partially purified extracts of Curcuma longa, Piper betle, and Acorus calamus on the feeding and oviposition of cutworm and bollworm was investigated from September 1984 to February 1985 at the CRDI Crop Production Laboratory, Batac, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The crude extracts of the test plants were effective antifeedant against cutworm but decreased with older instars. Larvae reared on extracts-treated leaves were smaller that those in the control. Acorus calamus had the highest larvae mortality. A lesser antifeedant effect of the crude extracts was observed on boll-worm. Larvae that fed on extracts-treated bolls has lesser fresh weight with highest mortality after five feedings. There was no effect on the extracts on adult emergence but their eggs hatched late. Fractions 2 and 3 of Acorus calamus eluted by carbon tetrachloride and acetone, respectively, were the most effective antifeedant against the fourth instar cutworm larvae. The petroleum ether-derived extract of Piper betle stimulated oviposition but its volatile oil and the petroleum ether-derived oil of Acorus calamus completely inhibited oviposition of boll-worm.

Abstract:
An ethnobotanical study of plants used for anti-diarrhoea in Yogyakarta and its surrounding area followed by bibliographic study on their phytochemical and pharmacological properties has been conducted. It revealed that 90 plant species have been utilized for anti-diarrhoea. Bibliographic information gathered indicated that their phytochemical properties suit well with their pharmacological effect, such as beetle nut (Areca catechu), guava leaf (Psidium guajava) and teak charcoal (Tectona grandis). However, pharmacological effects of seeds of Brucea sumatrana and rhizome of Curcuma domestica for anti-diarrhoea need to be reconfirmed.

BIOTROP Special Publication 45: 219-228 (1992)

Abstract:
The main objective of this research is to examine and to discuss the possibility of using spices such as lemon grass, ginger, turmeric and chilly as insect protectant and insect repellent for small scale storage condition. It was found that fresh lemon grass, ginger and turmeric gave good protection against insect infestation in rice, wheat flour and groundnut up to 12 weeks of storage; while control samples became infested within 6 weeks of storage. These spices which are characterized by their strong aroma, flavours and pungency can reduce the growth and multiplication of insect population in stored products. (Authors' abstract)

Purwaningsih, E
Thesis; Yogyakarta, Faculty of Agriculture, Gadjah Mada University, 1993; 52 p

Abstract:
A research was conducted in the Chemistry Laboratory of Biotechnology Division, Inter University Center, Gadjah Mada University, from January to May 1993. The research was aimed at studying the insecticidal activities and the attractancy/reppelency activities of 'kunyit' extract against Spodoptera litura. The research used a Randomized Completely Design. The insecticidal activity test was carried out with feeding, contact/residual, and contact/ topical tests. The serial concentrations used in the test were: 80%, 40%, 20%, 10%, and 0% (control, with acetone as solvent). The experimental insects were 20 of the third instar larvae in every treatment with four replications. The attractancy/repellency test was carried out with choice test, and the experimental insects were the third instar larvae and the adult. The result showed that the extract of Curcuma domestica could kill the larvae and has LC50 value from the feeding, residual/contact, and contact/topical tests: 45.01%, 59.30% and 21.24%. The choice test showed that the number of larvae and adults on the treated leaves were less than those on the untreated leaves. The higher the concentration of the extract, the lower the number of the experimental insects on the treated leaves. The extract had reppelency effect to Spodoptera litura.

Abstract:
A discourse on the need to undertake modern ethnobotanical studies in Indonesia was presented using the recent development on the present day uses of plants as dye sources and colouring materials by the Madurese as a starting point of discussion. The possibility of utilizing ethnobotanical knowledge as an indicator to gauge the future potentials of plant resources as exemplified by the dye producing plants was pointed out. Being a little known subject in Indonesia, ethnobotany had been presented to the students generally by inserting it into the economic botany lecture, as had been practised by the M.Sc. Taxonomic Botany Course offered by Bogor Agricultural University. In developing this branch of science in the future it was suggested that it should be presented as an independent subject matter in an appropriate study programme in the university. An example of ethnobotanical syllabus for the higher education was presented. (Authors' abstract)

Abstract:
As medicinally potential heritages, 77 species of raw material for 33 kinds of medicinal herbs were studied. Phyllanthus niruri, Orthosiphon aristatus, Citrus aurantifolia and Lepiniopsis ternatensis were among other popular medicinal herbs. At least each species had been used as a herb for the remedy of 5 illness. There were species with their commodity status as spices, but also popular as herbs, e.g. Myristica fragrans, Foeniculum vulgare and Curcuma domestica. Plant processing as raw material for "jamu" did not correlated with the usage level as "jamu", but were more influenced by their status. The number of literature reference per species of the non-medicinal plants but with medicinal potential was on the average 24.6, compared to only 2.3 of the medicinal plants used as "jamu" herbs. Subjects of study commonly discussed in literature were vernacular names, usage, maintenance, and ecology, while the aspects of production, origin and distribution, property, growth and development, propagation, breeding, and post-harvest handling were still rarely mentioned.

Risalah Pertemuan Ilmiah Aplikasi Isotop dan Radiasi [Proceedings of the Scientific Seminar on the Application of Isotope and Radiation]; Jakarta, 13-15 Desember 1994; Buku II Pertanian; p.75-82

Abstract:
For biochemical and pharmacological studies, radioisotopic labelled compounds are often required. In attempts to obtain labelled compounds of volatile oil and curcuminoid from two species of Curcuma (C. domestica and C. xanthorrhiza), in vivo labelling using 14C through the photosynthetic process has been carried out under a controlled environmental condition in a close system (photosynthetic chamber, temperature 20-25oC, relative humidity 50-60%, light intensity 45, 000 - 95, 000 lux during the day and 8, 000-18, 000 lux during the evening and night). By single CO2 feeding at 20 uCi, relatively high radioactive counts were already detected in leaf tissues 5 days after 14CO2 exposure i.e.96, 661 and 118, 217 cpm/g for C. domestica and C. xanthorrhiza, respectively. These counts could be increased approximately 12 times by two consecutive feedings in a 5 days interval at 20 uCi each, with considerably high counts in volatile oils and curcuminoid extracted from the rhizomes.

Abstract:
Rhizome rot disease on ginger caused by Rhizoctonia sp. has already been known. However, the characteristics of the pathogen have not been completely known yet. Hence, the experiments were conducted to characterise optimum temperature and pH range for their growth, sensitivity to 10 different fungicides and pathogenicity of each isolates R2, R10 and R60 from diseased Alpinia galanga, Curcuma domestica and Zingiber officinale, respectively. The results indicated that the pathogens grew well at temperature between 25-35oC and pH of 5.5 to 8.5. Among the 10 different fungicides, flutolanil, methyloclofos and iprodion were the most toxic fungicides. Besides that sensitivities among isolates were different. While flutolanil inhibited the growth of R2 and R10 at 10 ppm and R60 at 1 ppm, iprodion inhibited the growth of R2 and R10 at 10 ppm and R60 t 100 ppm. Those isolates cause rhizome rot and sheath blight on inoculated ginger plant.

Abstract:
This study was conducted to extract possible toxic substances from yellow ginger (C. longa) and betel (P. betle), to determine the biological activities of these extracts such as insecticidal, nematicidal and fungicidal effects and to determine the median lethal concentration as a comparative measure of effectivity. Crude ethanol extracts from yellow ginger (C. longa) and betel (P. betle), caused mortality and decreased the survival of green tobacco aphids (M. persicae). Yellow ginger was more toxic than betel. The LC 50 for the nematicidal activity was 9.35% for yellow ginger and 6.71% for betel. Likewise, they inhibited the mycelial growth of fungal pathogens; Aspergillus niger, Fusarium oxysporum unknown, Sclerotium rolfsii, and Pythium debaryanum. Betel was more antifungal than yellow ginger. S. rolfsii was the most susceptible among the fungi tested and P. debaryanum was the most resistant.

7th Asian Symposium on Medicinal Plants, Spices, and Other Natural Products (ASOMPS VII); Manila; Philippines (1992) Feb 2-7; HERDIN Database; PC920809; MFN 007481

Abstract:
Fertility regulating potential of Curcuma longa was evaluated based on the estrogenic properties as shown by vaginal cornification and uterine weights on bilaterally overiectromized rats. Estrogenicity of lyophilized Curcuma longa at 10.9, 13.8 and 17.8 g/kg doses was assayed on the estrous cycle, uterine weight and on some of the hematological parameters of castrated female albino rats. Vaginal cornification was observed in all treatment groups of the two extracts. At the end of the treatment period, 100 of rats treated with C. longa were in the estrus phase. Uterine weights in the two high doses of C.longa were higher than the normal but the lowest dose of 10.9 caused a decrease in weight of uteri. Hematological evaluation revealed an increase in RBC count, hematocrit and hemoglobin values corresponding to an increase in dose of C.longa. White blood corpuscle count of 10.9 g/kg dose was higher that the two controls while the count was lowest at 13.8 g/kg of the C. longa.

Feasibilities and limitations of carbon dioxide supercritical fluid extraction; the extraction of natural products


Marsin Sanagi, M; Umi KAhmad; Smith, RM
Department of Chemistry, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor, Malaysia

Proceedings of the International Conference on the Use of Traditional Medicine & Other Natural in Health Care, 8-11 June 1993; Penang; p 325

Abstract:
Supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) offers fast and easy separation of die solvent from the extracts and coupled with the case of fractionation of the components makes it a potentially powerful alternative to conventional liquid extraction methods. This paper describes recent works on the use of SFE in the extraction of natural products. Studies on SFE carried out in Department of Chemistry, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia have been focused on the extraction of compounds from the rhizomes of selected species of the Zingiberaceae family including Zingiber officinale, Curcuma longa, Alpinia galanga, and Zingiber zerumbet. Supercritical fluid extractions of the samples using neat CO2 under a mild temperature of 6O °C and pressure of 100 bar yield largely the volatile, non-polar components. Limitation of the SFE of these natural products arose from the low solubilities of the polar components in CO2. The addition of small proportions of a modifier solvent such as methanol will circumvent this problem but excessive organic modifier will decrease selectivity and it will be similar to liquid extraction. SFE of the samples followed by on-line trapping of the neat CO2 extracts onto a silica column enables better fractionation of the extracts. Problems due to plugging of restrictors and loss of the more volatile components resulting in poor reproducibility are described. Measures to tackle these problems are discussed.

Faculty of Applied Sciences; Universiti Teknologi MARA; 40450 Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia

Malaysian Sciences and Technology Congress; Symposium C: Life Sciences; 12-14 December 2002; Sarawak

Abstract:
The tumeric plant, scientifically known as Curcuma longa (Domestica) L belonging to the ginger family (Zingiberaceae) is widely distributed in Malaysia. Tumeric has been used as a spice for many thousands of years and is today still one of the principal ingredients of curry powders in Malaysia. Ground tumeric is insoluble in water and imparts yellow colour either by dispersion throughout the food or by dissolution of the curcumin into the vegetable oils. Curcuminoids refers to a group of phenolics present in tumeric, which are chemically related to its principal ingredient, curcumin. Curcumin I bis (4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenoxyl)-1,6-heptadiene-3,5-dione, is a natural yellow dye. Curcuminoids have been shown to have various pharmacological properties such as: anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-viral and anti-microbial etc. Curcuminoids were extracted by methanol. The crude extract was purified by silica gel coloumn chromatography. Three fractions were obtained from the column when column was used as an effluent. The three column fractions have Rf values similar to standard curcumin I (0.56), curcumin II (0.22) and curcumin III (0.06). The crude extract and column fraction I (Rf value of 0.56) were evaluated for antioxidant activity, reducing power and scavenging effect on DPPH. The antioxidant activities of crude curcumin extract and column fraction I (Rf value of 0.56) were evaluated by using linoleic acid-thiocyanate assay method. At concentration of 100 ppm, crude curcumin extract and column fraction I exhibited high antioxidant activity which have percentage of inhibition of 58% and 65.2% respectively. The antioxidant activity of curcumin fraction I was comparable to vitamin C (69%). The crude curcumin extracts and column fraction I at concentration of 6-20 mg/ml showed excellent scavenging activities on DPPH. The crude curcumin extract and column fraction I at concentration of 5 mg/ml were also found to be able to reduce Fe3+ in an aqueous solution.

Thai Abstracts: Science and Technology 16: 20-21 (1991)

Abstract:
The effect of capsule-filled turmeric (Curcuma longa) on healing of peptic ulcer was studied endoscopically in gastric and duodenal ulcer patients with abdominal pain. The drug was given orally in the dose of 2 capsules (250 mg each) four times daily, one half to an hour before meals and at bed time. Endoscopic examinations were done intervally at 0, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after starting treatment. Among the 10 patients treated, 8 were males and 2 females, ages ranged between 16-60 years, eight patients were suffering with duodenal ulcer and the other two with gastric ulcer. The ulcer size varied between 0.5 and 1.5 cm in diameter. The ulcers were found to be completely healed in 5 patients (50 %) within 4 weeks and 6 patients (60 %) within 12 weeks.

Thai Abstracts: Science and Technology. 13: 120 (1988)

Abstract:
Attempt to extract substances from some readily available plants which have been reported to have activities against Spodoptera litura revealed that methanolic crude extract of Curcuma longa slowed down the growth of Spodoptera litura. The steam distillate of the extract contained a mixture of terpenes which were lethal to Spodoptera litura over a long period. Using bioassay as a lead to isolate substances toxic to Spodoptera litura from Nephelium lappaceum and Annona squamosa, which were previously reported to have activity against Spodoptera litura did not result in any effective extract. Similarly, no effective extract could be obtained from Chromolaena odorata.

Abstract:
Crude and volatile extracts obtained from Boesenbergia rotunda (L.) Mansf., Curcuma longa Linn., and Zingiber officinalis Roscoe were determined for their contrary on colony development of postharvest disease fungi through poisoned food technique. The tested fungi were Colletotrichum capsici, C. gloeosporioides., Dothiorella sp., Lasiodiplodia theobromae, Pestalotiopsis sp. and Pythium aphanidermatum. The experiment demonstrated that inhibition characteristic of the tested herbs was significant at 10,000 ppm for crude extracts and 1,000 ppm for volatile extracts composed in PDA. The radial growth of almost all the tested fungi were inhibited by the tested herb extracts with various sensitivity. An identical inhibition (83.67 - 87.60%) was found obviously on fungal colonies formed by Colletotrichum spp. isolates on PDA supplemented with Z. officinalis crude extract. It was also showed that an effective part was associated with crude extract for Z. officinalis but with volatile extract for B. rotunda.

The 3rd World Congress on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants for Human Welfare : 189. (2003)

Abstract:
Some rural people residing in the villages of upper northeastern part of Thailand still use herbs for preventing and curing many diseases. From the interview of the eight medicinal folk men living in seven villages in upper northeastern part of Thailand, the medicinal plants are used in 5 ways-rubbing, fresh eaten, decoction, an alcoholictinture and massage. Rubbing is the common application such as; (1) Phak khom (Amaranthus lividis L.) leaf is applied for removing pain, reducing swelling and releasing pain of insects, (2) crushed Salet phang tua phu (Barleria lupulina Lindl.) and Salet phang phon tua mia (Clinacanthus nutans (Burm.f) Lindau) areapplied for herpes (ngu-swat), (3) immature dry black fruit of sugar apple (Annona squamosa L.) called mummy is scrubbed and externally applied on suppurated skin as an effective suppurant. Examples of the second method are-(1) crushed fresh Sap suea (Chromolaena odorata (L.) R.M. King & H. Rob.) leaf with alum is eaten andapplied on the wound as an antidote for snake bite, (2) Phet sangkhat (Cissus quadrangularis L.) vine with ripe tamarind pulp is eaten for curing hemorrhoids, (3) root and vine of Khruea sai tan (Aganosma marginata (Roxb.) G.Don) is eaten to get rid of Schizophrenia. An example of a decoction is Khi non (Uraria crinita (L.) Desv. Ex DC.) which is an effective remedy for severe colon cancer. An example of massage is the mixture of Thao en on (Cryptolepis buchanani Roem. & Schult.), Thao wan priang (Derris scandens (Roxb.) Benth.), Phlai (Zinger montanum (Koenig) Link ex Dietr.) and Khamin chan (Curcuma longa L.) are applied to cure paralysis. An alcoholic tinture of the roots of Krachai dam (Boesenbergia rotunda (L.) Mansf.) is used as sex stimulant.

Abstract:
Doxorubicin (adriamycin) is an important and effective anticancer drug widely used for the treatment of various types of cancer but its clinical use is limited by dose-dependent cardiotoxicity in over 20 percent of patients. Elevated tissue levels of cellular superoxide anion/oxidative stress are a mechanism by which doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity. Here we tested the hypothesis that herbal extracts with known antioxidant activity will exert cardioprotective effect against doxorubicin. The cardiac myoblast cell line H9C2 was incubated with various medicinal plant extracts, including Curcuma longa L.(CL), Morus alba L. (MA), Phyllanthus emblica L. (PE), Phyllanthus urinaria L. (PU) and Piper rostratum Roxb. (PR.), and then tested for their cardioprotective effects. Ethanol extract from PE showed the highest antioxidant properties evaluated by ferric reducing/antioxidant power (FRAP) assay. Vitamin C and Trolox (water-soluble form of vitamin E) did not protect doxorubicin-indued cytotoxicity while cardoprotective effects were observed in all plant extracts except PE. Further studies in a cervix adenocarcinoma cell line (HeLa) showed no reduction in anticancer activity (log dose-response curve) of doxorubicin in the presence of all herbal extracts. The data demonstrate that antioxidants from medicinal sources may be useful in the protection of cardiotoxicity in patients who receive doxorubicin.

Abstract:
Ascosphaera apis is a fungal pathogen causing Chalkbrood disease in honey bee larvae. Chalkbrood is most frequent during damp conditions. Infected larvae turn chalky white color, become hard and then turn black. It can be regarded as 'the most widespread infectious disease' in Thailand and this has led to economic loss in apiculture. A. apis strains were isolated on Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA) from the dead honey bee larvae, collected from infected hives in Northern Thailand. The fugal strains were identified as A. apis by their morphology in comparison with the A. apis IFO9831. We aim to find an alternative approach by using medicinal plants in combating and controlling the disease. Studies on the effect of crude medicinal plant extracts, therefore, have been carried out. Dried powdered plants (Allium sativum Linn., Eugenia caryophyllum Bullock&Harrison, Piper betle, Curcuma longa Linn., Illicium verum Hook, Cinnamomum cassia, Rhinacanthus nasutus Kurz, Azadirachta siamensis, Acorus calamus Linn., and Stemona tuberose Lour) were extracted in seven different solvents by incubating for 48 hours. The aqueous extracts in suitable solvent of E. caryophyllum Bullock&Harrison, P. betle, I. verum Hook, C. cassia, A. calamus Linn. and S. tuberose Lou gave inhibitory effect when tested with Thai isolates of Ascosphaera apis. Various concentrations (0.25-10%) of the extract of the six chosen plants were experimented. Cinnamomum cassia and Piper betle (1.5-2% (w/v)) gave the best inhibitory effect on the fungal growth. The further analysis of these active compounds was done by using Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC).

Abstract:
In this investigation, turmeric oil is isolated from Curcuma longa Linn. Family Zingiberaceae; Curcumin is chemical compound, yellowish-orange in color, also is isolated from Curcuma longa Linn. The objective of this study is to investigate the antibacterial activity of Turmeric oil and curcumin. The bacteria used in this investigation is Staphylococcus aureus, E. Coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa which are isolated from infected patients. The method of antibacterial activity is agar dilution technique. The results were shown that turmeric oil could not inhibit growth of Staphylococcus aureus, E. Coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Curcumin in the concentration 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 mg/ml could inhibit growth of S. aureus, ATCC 25923 in every strains of studies (20 strains) but could not inhibit growth of E. Coli, P. aeruginosa. The minimal inhibitory concentration of curcumin in inhibit growth of Staphylococus aureus is 0.25 mg/ml. From this study, curcumin is shown to have inhibitory effect on S. aureus, thus it should be more further investigation of research and development of curcumin for new drugs to use in the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus infection. We develop the pharmaceutical preparation as cream, gel, of turmeric oil. The absorption of the new drug curcumin through the membranes of different dosage forms should be also studied in the near future.

Abstract:
Oral candidiasis is one of the oral fungal infection which has been recognized in the treatment for many years ago. Herbal therapy is one of the well-known and popular therapeutic method for many infections including oral cavity. The present study was to screen the anticandidal activity of 18 essential oils extracted form Thai medical plants, namely, Ocimum sanctum, Ocimum basilicum, Curcuma longa, Alpinia officinarum, Piper betel, Cymbopogon citratus, Cymbopogon nardus, Zingiber montanum, Vetiveria zizanioides, Lavandula angustifola, Piper nigrum, Ocimum americanum, Hyptis suaveolens, Fanthoxylum budrunga, Zingiber officinalis, Eugenia caryophyllen, Alpinia nigra and Citrus hystrix. The anticandidal activity was performed by agar-diffusion and broth-dilution technique using one laboratory (Candida albicans ATCC 10231) and 30 clinical oral isolated Candida albicans. Nystatin was used as a positive control. Twelve oil extracts except Ocimum sanctum, Alpinia officinarum, Piper betel, Piper nigrum, Hyptis suaveolens, Fanthoxylum budrunga and Zingiber officinalis gave the potent anticandidal activity. The three most active oil extracts were from Cymbopogon citratus, Ocimum americanum and Eugenia caryophyllen exhibited the activity against all of tested Candida by agardiffusion technique compared with the activity of nystatin standard disk (used as positive control). Approximately 2-fold of clear zone diameter of these oils against C. albicans ATCC 10231 was demonstrated after compared with the diameter of positive control. The further study exhibited that their minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC90) to inhibit C. albicans ATCC 10231 were 1:64 by brothdilution technique. Other active oil extracts which were Ocimum basilicum, Curcuma longa, Cymbopogon nardus, Zingiber montanum, Vetiveria zizanioides, Lavandula angustifola, Zingiber officinalis, Alpinia nigra and Citrus hystrix exhibited their MIC90 in a range between 1:8 to 1:32. This suggested the possibility of using some aromatic oil from Thai medicinal plants for oral candidal infection treatment.

The 3rd World Congress on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants for Human Welfare : 116. (2003)

Abstract:
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a phenomenon that is often associated with decreased intracellular drug accumulation in patient's tumor cells resulting from enhanced drug efflux. It is related to the overstatement of a membrane protein, P-glycoprotein (Pgp-170), on the surface of tumor cells, thereby reducing drug cytotoxicity. A variety of studies have tried to find potent MDR modulators which increase drug accumulation in cancer cells. In this study, natural curcuminoids, pure curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin isolated from turmeric (Curcuma longa Linn.) were compared for their potential ability to modulate the human MDR-1 gene statement in multidrug resistant human cervical carcinoma cell line, KB- V1. Western blot analysis and RT-PCR showed that all the three curcuminoids inhibited MDR-1 gene statement and bisdemethoxycurcumin produced maximum effect. In additional studies we found that commercial grade curcumin (approximately 77% curcumin, 17% demethoxycurcumin and 3% bisdemethoxycurcumin) decreased MDR-1 gene statement in a dose dependent manner and had about the same potent inhibitory effect on MDR-1 gene statement as our natural curcuminoid mixtures. These results indicate that bisdemthoxycurcumin is the most active of the curcuminoids present in turmeric for modulation of MDR-1 gene. Treatment of drug-resistant KB-V1 cells with curcumin increased their sensitivity to vinblastine, which was consistant with a decreased MDR-1 gene product, a P-glycoprotein, on the cell plasma membrane. Although many drugs that prevent the P-glycoprotein function have been reported, this report describes the inhibition of MDR-1 statement by a phytochemical. The modulation of MDR-1 statement may be an attractive target for new chemosensitizing agents.

Abstract:
The objective of this study was to investigate the free radical scavenging and tyrosinase inhibition activity of thirteen aromatic volatile oil samples extracted from Thai medicinal plants. They are Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum, Linn.), Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum, Linn.), Turmeric (Curcuma longa, L.), Lesser Galanga (Alpinia officinarum), Betel Vine (Piper betel, Linn.), Lemon Grass (Cymbopogon citrates, Stapf), Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus, Rendle), Plai (Zingiber montanum), Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanioides), Lavender (Lavandula angustifola, P.), Kaffir Lime Leaf (Citrus hystrix, DC.), Kaffir Lime (Citrus hystrix, DC.) and Black Peper (Piper nigrum, L.). In free radical scavenging assay, a stable free radical DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2- picryhydrazyl) was used and the absorbance at 570 nm was measured. In tyrosinase inhibition test, mushroom tyrosinase was used and the absorbance at 450 nm was measured by a 96-well reader. Only Betel Vine and Holy Basil oil samples gave free radical scavenging activity of about 15% (%RRA / residual rate of absorbance at 570 nm after 5 mins) comparable to vitamin E and vitamin C which are widely used in antiwrinkle cosmetics. Both Kaffir Lime leaf and Kaffir Lime fruit oil showed the tyrosinase inhibition (inhibition melanin formation from tyrosine by enzyme tyrosinase) potency of about 100% the same as kojic acid which is the popular compound for whitening cosmetics.

Abstract:
The effect of plant growth regulators, light and ages of explant on callus induction of turmeric (Curcuma longa Linn.) were studied. Young stem explants were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) solid medium added with BA and 2, 4-D at various concentration levels and incubated in dark and light conditions. Cultures in dark condition gave faster and higher percentage of callus induction than those of light condition. Also, callus was occurred when stem explant was cultured on the medium supplemented with 5 mg/l 2,4-D alone or supplemented with 0.5 or 5 mg/l 2, 4-D plus 0.1 mg/l BA. The highest percentage of callus induction at 80% was found with the explants cultivated on medium containing only one 5 mg/l 2, 4-D in the dark. When young stem explants ages 1, 2 and 3 months were cultured on MS solid medium supplemented with 5 mg/l 2, 4-D in darkness. Different ages of young stem explants had no significant to the percentage of callus induction within a range of 50-67.5%, whereas the calli of 1 and 2 months old stem explants had more significant to appear than those of 3 months old stem explants.

Abstract:
Crude and volatile extracts obtained from Boesenbergia rotunda (L.) Mansf., Curcuma longa Linn., and Zingiber officinalis Roscoe were determined for their contrary on colony development of postharvest disease fungi through poisoned food technique. The tested fungi were Colletotrichum capsici, C. gloeosporioides., Dothiorella sp., Lasiodiplodia theobromae, Pestalotiopsis sp. and Pythium aphanidermatum. The experiment demonstrated that inhibition characteristic of the tested herbs was significant at 10,000 ppm for crude extracts and 1,000 ppm for volatile extracts composed in PDA. The radial growth of almost all the tested fungi were inhibited by the tested herb extracts with various sensitivity. An identical inhibition (83.67 - 87.60%) was found obviously on fungal colonies formed by Colletotrichum spp. isolates on PDA supplemented with Z. officinalis crude extract. It was also showed that an effective part was associated with crude extract for Z. officinalis but with volatile extract for B. rotunda.

Abstract:
The world-wide increase of foodborne infections with antibiotic resistant pathogens is of growing concern and is designated by the World Health Organization as an emerging public health problem. Because of the use of antibiotics in livestock species may accelerate the development of antibiotic-resistant strains of microbial pathogens, potentially complicating treatment for both animals and humans. An alternative way to mitigate the effects of increasing resistance is the use of herbal products for antibiotic substances. A completely randomized design was used to conduct these experiments. Nine hundred chicks were divided into 3 groups. All groups consisted of 6 replications with 50 chicks each. The experimental chicks were receiving 3 different treatment diets, Avilamycin 2.5 ppm supplemented diet, a combination of Andrographis paniculata , Curcuma longa and a combination of Momordica charantia and Zingiber montmun 2,00 ppm supplemented diet and a control diet (without Avilamycin and herbal products). Feed conversion ratio (FCR) of the group fed control and herbal supplemented diets was found significantly improved compared to Avilamycin supplemented diet at the end of the third weeks (P<0.05). No significant differences were detected in feed consumption, average daily weight gain and % livability. The length of the duodenum, jejunum and ileum were not significantly different (P>0.05) whereas the length of the colon in Avilamycin supplement diet was significantly shorter than other treatments (P<0.05). The ratio of villus/crypt of Liberkhün and the villus depth of duodenum and jejunum in the group fed herbal supplemented diets were significantly defferent (P<0.05; P<0.01) Results from this study indicate that a combination of Andrographis paniculata, Curcuma longa, Momordica charantia and Zingiber montnum can directly and indirectly enhance growth performance of broilers.

Abstract:
Increasing resistance to antibiotic agents is of growing concern to public health offcials worldwide. The concern includes infections acquired in resistant foodborne disease associated with drug use in food-producing animals. An alternative way to mitigate the effects of increasing resistance is the use of gerbil products as a substitute. A completely randomized design was used to conduct this experiment. One hundred and forty four chicks were divided into 3 groups; each group contains 6 replications with 8 chicks in each replication. Each group was randomly assigned of the 3 treatment diets. Avilamycin 2.5 pm supplemented diet, a combination of Andrographis paniculata, Curcuma longa and Momordica charantia 1,000 ppm supplemented diet, and a control diet (without Avilamycin and herbal products). No significant differences were found in lymphocyte proliferation and 2-Mercaptoethanol-resistant (MER, lgG) and 2-Mercaptoethanol-sensitive (MES, lgM) antibody titers (P>0.05). Supplementation with the combination of herbals could enhance not only the opsonic phagocytosis activity of peritoneal macrophage (P<0.05), but also enhance the non-opsonic phagocytosis activity of peritoneal macrophage (P<0.01). The increase in macrophage phagocytic activity indicated that a combination of Andrographis paniculata, Curcuma longa and Momordica charantia contains immune enhancing effect on non-specific immune system.

Abstract:
A study including 270 Cobb day-old-chick was aimed to evaluate the effect of substituting turmeric powder for dietary antibiotic growth promoter (AGP) on productive performance, carcass quality and weights of certain immune-related organs. The chicks were evenly divided to 18 groups of 15 each and each group was randomly assigned to receive one of the following dietary treatments: basal feed with 0.0% supplemented turmeric (TO.0, . replicates), 0.05% (T0.05), 0.10% (T0.10) or 0.15% (T0.15) supplemental turmeric (4 replicates each) or the basal diet supplemented with AGP-colistin at 105 ppm (3 replicates). The basal diets for starting chicks (1-21 days of age) contained 23.6% crude protein and that for growing chicks contained 20.7%. The chicks were freely assessed to feed and water at all time and were subjected in commercial farms. Body weight gain and feed consumption were recorded as the chicks reached 21 and 42 days of age. The trial was terminated at 42 day of age where 1 male and 1 female broiler were randomly sacrificed for carcass study. It was found that the broiler in the turmeric groups had slightly better (P>0.05) body weight gain (BWG), feed conversion (F/G) and survival rates than those on the AGP feed. The turmeric broilers had 1.0 to 10.16% higher BWG, consumed-1.1 to 5.56% more feed and had 2.73 to 4.92% better F/G than those of the AGP group. However, the turmeric broilers had lower (P<0.05) dressing percentage and tended to have heavier (P>0.05) thymus and spleen than the AGP group. The weight of other immune-related organs did not show any definite trend . when compared the responses among turmeric broilers, those in the T0.15 group had best performance (2.26 kg BWG, 1.74 F/G and 93.3% survival rate) followed by The negative control (T0.0) that have 2.24 kg BWG, 1.80 F/G and 97.8% survivability.

Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to evaluate the appropriate level of turmeric as a growth promoter, antioxidant, immune enhancer and production efficiency in broilers. A total of 2,300 day-old male Cobb 500 groups, chicks were randomly allotted into 5 groups, each with 4 replicates. Grop l, control group, received corn-soybean basal diet formulated according to the breed requirement. Group ll-lV, turmeric groups, received basal diet supplemented with turmeric replaced corn in the formula at the concentration of 90, 135, and 180 ppm curcuminoids respectively in feed. Group V, antibiotic group, received diet supplemented with 2.5 ppm avilamycin as a growth promoter. Birds were reared under evaporative cooling system with stocking density of 17 birds/m2 for 42 days. Management system was provided as same as commercial broiler production. The experiment revealed that turmeric in the diet did not show any growth promoter effect. Inclusion rate of 180 ppm curcuminoids in diet, however, tended to have the highest weight gain and the lowest FCR at the end of the experiment. For antioxidant status, supplementation of 90 and 135 ppm curcuminoids significantly reduced H/L ratio after 28 days of the experiment, and either did 180 ppm after 42 days of the experiment (P<0.05). Moreover, 90 ppm curcuminoids tended to reduce malondialdehyde in plasma of chickens compared with control and antibiotic groups. Bursal and spleen to body weight ratios tended to be higher in tumeric diet groups. Production efficiency, which was determined by European efficiency factors, showed the highest value in the diet supplemented with 180 ppm cucuminoids but not significantly different with the other groups (P>0.05).

Abstract:
A Completely Randomized Design was used to study the effects of extracts from Curcuma longa, Paederia tomentosa and Tinospora crispa used as antibiotic substitutes on stress and immunity in broiler. Three hundred and thirty broilers were derived into 11 groups, 6 replications with 5 broilers/replication in each group. A total of 11 treatment diets; T1: control (without antibiotic and herbal); T2: 2.5 mg/kg antibiotic (avilamycin); T3, T4 and T5: 0.01, 0.03 and 0.05% C. longa; T6, T7 and T8" 0.01, 0.03 and 0.05% P. tomentosa; T9, T10 and T11: 0.01, 0.03 and 0.05% T. crispa supplemented diets were randomly assigned to each group. Anti-Newcastle-disease (anti-ND) antibody level, heterophil/lymphocyte ratio, bursal weight/body weight and spleen weight/body weight were determined. Results showed that the groups fed 0.05% C. longa and 0.03 and 0.05% T. crispa expressed higher anti-ND titers compared to the control group (P<0.01) at 28 and 35 days of age. The H/L ratio was found lower in the group fed 0.01 and 0.05% C. longa and 0.01 and 0.03% T. crispa (P<0.05). Bursal weight/body weight was lower in the group fed 0.03% P. tomentosa and 0.01 and 0.03% T. crispa, with the spleen weight/body weight of the group fed antibiotic supplemented diet was lower than the others (P<0.05). This study suggests that the optimal supplementation of C. longa and T. crispa in broiler diet can reduce stress and enhance humoral immune response to ND virus
