RODRIGUEZ-LIZANA, Maritza  and  OCHOA-YUPANQUI, Walter Wilfredo. Biocidal activity of the crude ethanol extract of Piper elongatum "Matico" in cervicitis in women of childbearing age, as a therapeutic alternative. J. Selva Andina Res. Soc. [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.1, pp.29-37. ISSN 2072-9294.

The objective of the research was to determine the biocidal activity of the ethanolic crude extract of the Piper elongatum (matico) of cervicitis in women of childbearing age, of a population was 250 women of childbearing age, 50 women with a diagnosis of acute cervicitis (34) and chronic (16), with an average age of 38 years, forming control and case groups for 25 women. The structured interview sheet, PAP results and laboratory test results were used as an instrument. Encouraging results were achieved 29.4% of women with acute cervicitis received treatment with 1% matico ethanolic crude extract were relieved against 20.6% of the control group (X2: 4.37, p = 0.037), while women diagnosed with chronic cervicitis, treated with 5% ethanolic crude extract, 50% were relieved and none in the control group, indicating that there is effectiveness of the matico ethanolic crude extract (X2: 7.27, p=0.007). It is concluded that the bioactive components present in the ethanolic crude extract have biocidal activity on acute and chronic cervicitis.
