AbstractLeucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) has been used as traditional medicine, such as
drugs to decrease the level of blood glucose, so it can be used as drug to indicate

by completely randomized design. Group P0 (control) were given 0,9 % NaCl, and groups
P1, P2, and P3 were given 0,5 g / kg bw, 1 g / kg bw, and 1,5 g / kg bw leucaena’s leaf
extract by oral administration respectively. The treatment were given daily for 30 days. All of
the mice were necropsied at day 31, and the liver were taken to examine their
