Cervical cancer is a disease from the Human papillomavirus (HPV) through transmission, virus persistence, clone development until infecting the cells in the cervical. This study is to determine CDK4 expression in cervical cancer cells after being given Zanthoxylum acanthopodium methanol extract (ZAM) and the histological description of cervical cancer cells. This study consisted of 5 treatment groups. K-: control group, K+: rats model of cancer, P1: rats model of cancer with a dose of 100mg/BW of ZAM, P2: rats model of cancer with a dose of 200 mg/BW of ZAM, and P3: rats model of cancer with a dose of 400 mg/BW of ZAM. The cervical tissue was prepared on paraffin blocks and given Immunohistochemistry staining. Results showed that the expression of CDK4 are reduced in the ZAM treatment at doses of 200 and 400mg/KgBW (P<0.05) in cervical histology, but in doses of 100mg/kg BW, many brown marks are still visible on the cervical tissue. These proteins will bind, inhibit proteins, cell cycle development, modulate cell division, and signal transduction pathways of apoptotic signaling. The injection of benzopyrene and given ZAM in cervical tissue affect hematological values. ZAM affects and improves cervical histology after benzopyrene injection. The extract of andaliman can be developed into a cervical cancer drug candidate.
