Abstract

In recent years, there has been an increase in the incidence of fungal infections accompanied by a decrease in susceptibility to fluconazole as one of the drug choices for fungal infections. So that it needs to be considered the existence of an alternative drug that is effective and also expected to have a minimal side effect, one of which is Propolis. This research was done to determine the effectivity of Indonesian Propolis from Tetragonula biroi bee on the growth of Candida sp. and Cryptococcus neoformans. An experimental study to test the susceptibility of Propolis using disc diffusion technique performed on six types of fungi, e.g. Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis, Candida krusei, Candida tropicalis, dan Cryptococcus neoformans. The samples tested were Indonesian propolis emulsion from Tetragonula biroi bee with a concentration of 10 mg/ml, 50 mg/ml, and 70 mg/ml. The sample selection based on the result of "Exploration of Antifungal Potential of Indonesian Propolis from Tetragonula biroi Bee"from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Indonesia. Indonesian Propolis emulsion from Tetragonula biroi bee can inhibit the growth of Candida sp., especially Candida glabrata and Candida krusei, and also Cryptococcus neoformans with an optimum concentration of 10 mg/ml. The lower concentration than 10 mg/ml of Indonesian Propolis emulsion from Tetragonula biroi bee could be considered to provide more optimal results.
