This work is aimed to indicate the anti-diabetic effect of ethanol extract of Moringa oleifera leaves and callus tissues in alloxan induced diabetic albino mice. Eighteen albino mice were randomly grouped into eight groups. The first and second one were positive and negative groups, other six groups were treated with ethanol extract in different concentration (20%, 40% and 80%) for both leaves and callus tissues. Results revealed that the highest mean callus growth obtained at 0.5mg/l BA and 2.5mg/l 2,4-D (779.5mg). Results also showed that ethanol extract of callus tissues significantly reduce glucose level in the blood of the treated albio mice recording 113.3 mg/Ld at the day 15 of the treatment. Weight of the treated animals significantly increased in all treatment begin from day 7 compared with negative control.
