Thirty male BALB/C mice of two months age were divided into  ve 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
