The author would like to study the effects of ethanol Graptophyllum pictum (L.) Griff extract (EGPE) as anti-inflammation on wistar with experimental hemorrhoids. RCT post-test only design were done on 28 wistar, that were allocated into four groups. The 2nd , 3rd and 4th group were induced with 6% croton oil into anus for three days, the 1st group was not induced. On the 4th day, 1st and 2nd group were given physiologic saline, 3rd and 4th group was given EGPE 100 mg and 300 mg/ kg bw respectively. At the 9th day, before termination, blood was aspirated from retro-ocular region for examination of serum IL-6, COX-2 and TNF-alpha using ELISA method, and SGOT, SGPT, urea and creatinine level. Anus was removed and prepared for microscopic examination to count the leucocyte under 400 HPF. Induction of 6% croton oil was significantly increased TNF-alpha, IL-6, COX-2 and leucocyte count. Treatment with EGPE dose 100 mg and 300 mg/ kg bw significantly reduce TNF-alpha, IL-6, COX-2 and leucocyte count, dose 100 mg was even better than 300 mg except for leucocyte count. SGOT, SGPT, blood urea and creatinine were not significantly different among groups. In conclusion, the EGPE 100 mg and 300 mg have anti-inflammatory effects in hemorrhoids wistar, which can suppress IL-6, COX-2, TNF-alpha, and total leucocytes. The EGPE dose 100 mg is better than dose 300 mg. EGPE save for kidney and liver.
