HYPOGLYCEMIC ACTIVITY OF ASTERACANTHA LONGIFOLIA NEES. IN ALLOXAN INDUCED DIABETIC RATSB. RAMESH AND B. RAGAVAN
Effect of oral administration of ethanolic extract of Asteracantha longifolia was investigated on blood glucose, serum insulin and liver glycogen levels in normal and alloxan-induced diabetic rats. The ethanolic extract at a dose of 300mg/kg body weight significantly lowered the blood glucose, increased the hepatic glycogen and serum insulin levels in the diabetic rats. These results indicate the hypoglycemic activity of Asteracantha longifolia.
