The aim of this study was to investigate antidiabetic activity of the non-polisacharide fraction of the aquoeus extract of grinting grass (NPF-GG) in streptozotocin induced diabetes in mice. Thirty male BALB/C mice of two months age were divided into five groups: placebo control, metformin control, NPF-GG treated groups(250 mg/kgBW, 500 mg/kgBW, and 1000 mg/kgBW, respectively).Hypoglicemic effect and histopathological features of the pancreatic islet showed that NPF-GG have high antidiabetic effect.It induced hypoglicemic effect and increased the cell quantity in Langerhans cells in the pancreas.
