This study aimed to examine the potential of aqueous extract of Centella asiatica on the macrophage number and matrix metalloproteinase- 9 (MMP-9) in blood vessels of chorioallantois membrane induced by basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (bFGF). This study used 20 embryonated chicken eggs (ECE) which were divided into five groups i.e. positive control (C+) given 60 ng of bFGF; negative control (C-) given DMSO 2%; treatment groups (T1; T2; T3) given 60 ng of bFGF and Centella asiatica extract (75; 90; 110) μg. It was concluded that Centella asiatica at a dose of 110 μg decreased the macrophage number and the expression of MMP-9.
