This study aimed to evaluate the effect of Moringa-Albumin (MA) combination on pro-inflammatory cytokine expressions, especially IFN-? and TNF-a, in a diabetic mouse model. Streptozotocin with a 145 mg/kg BW dose was used to induce diabetes condition in BALB/c mice. Mice with positive DM (blood glucose levels = 200 mg/dL) were orally administered with MA for 14 days at dose 1, dose 2, and dose 3. On day 15th, spleen cells were isolated to analyze IFN-? and TNF-a expressions by flow cytometry. The data were statistically analyzed with one-way ANOVA (?= 0.05) and Tukey test using SPSS version 16 for Windows. The results showed that the MA combination had anti-inflammatory activity in inhibiting IFN-? and TNF-a. Furthermore, dose 1 affected to decrease in the IFN-? expression while dose 3 decreased the expression of TNF-a. Thus, it can be concluded that the MA combination has a role in inhibiting IFN-? and TNF-a in a dosage-dependent manner. Based on the results, we assumed that MA might be one of the biological materials with efficacy to treat DM patients.
