AbstractBackground : Garcinia mangostana L. has been extensively used for years as antioxidant and anti-inflammation.However, its role in the context of endothelial disease was lacking.Objectives : To assess the effect of add-on G. mangostana L. extracts on endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetessubjects with high-risk Framingham score, compared to placebo.Methods : This was a prospective cohort study conducted in type 2 diabetes subjects with high-risk Framinghamscore.

The outcome measure of our study was the levels ofendothelial progenitor cell (EPC), circulating endothelial cell (CEC), nitric oxide (NO), tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α), interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP),malondialdehyde (MDA), Superoxide dismutase (SOD) and fasting blood glucose. Multiple linear regression wasused to determine the correlation and effect estimate.Results: A total of 49 patients were included in our study. Of those, elevated levels of EPC and SOD were observedin treatment group compared to placebo. On the other hand, the level of CEC, IL-1, Il-6, NO, MDA, TNF-α, fastingblood glucose and HbA1c was found significantly lower than placebo.Conclusion: Garcinia mangostana L. extract is associated with an increased levels of EPC and SOD, and it is alsocorrelated with a decreased levels of CEC, IL-1, Il-6, NO, MDA, TNF-α, fasting blood glucose and HbA1c.
