Background: Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease and correlates to the future major adverse cardiovascular events. Perivascular Adipose Tissue (PVAT) is an important site of regulating vascular dysfunction in diabetes. Polysaccharides Peptides (PsP), extract of Ganoderma lucidum, is one of the antioxidant therapies which is currently developed as complimentary diabetes therapy. This study was conducted to determine effect of PsP as an antioxidant agent to inhibit the thickness of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) in diabetic model rats. Methods: It was an experimental study with post-test only on control group design on male rats Rattus norvegicus aged 8 weeks. We administered high fat diet (HFD) and low-dose streptozocin (STZ) to make them diabetics, followed by PSP for 4 weeks. Samples were collected from rat aortic arch slice and then were read using light microscope. Results: One-way ANOVA analysis showed that there is significant difference of vascular intimal-media thickness in at least two treated groups (p=0.000). Post Hoc analysis with LSD showed that PsP with dose 150 mg/kgBW and 300 mg/kgBW can inhibit atherosclerotic process and reducing vascular intimal-media thickness into the condition of approaching normal group. Based on Pearson correlation test, there was a sufficiently strong correlation between PVAT thickness in negative control group and diabetic model rats with PsP 150 mg/kgBW group. Conclusion: Administration of PsP was proved to decrease the vascular intimal-media thickness diabetic model rats. The dose of 150 mg/kgBW of PsP is the optimal dose in decreasing the vascular intimal-media thickness in diabetic model rats. Besides, PsP also decreases the Perivascular Adipose Tissue (the PVAT) thickness and acts as an antioxidant.
