Antidiabetic Potential of Onosma hispidum Roots

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.436
Synopsis: 
In present study, antidiabetic potential of Onosma hispidum roots were assessed in diabetic animal models. O hispidum roots exhibited antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic effects. In addition, histopathological investigation revealed pancreatic beta cells regeneration activity by plant roots.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the antihyperglycemic, antihyperlipidemic and pancreatic beta cells regeneration potentials of Onosma hispidum (ratanjot) root extracts in alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits.

Antidiabetic Evaluation of Momordica charantia L Fruit Extracts

Issue:

10.7727/wimj.2013.180
Pages: 
294–9
Synopsis: 
Antidiabetic activities (hypoglycaemic, hypolipidaemic and pancreatic beta cells regeneration) of Momordica charantia (MC) fruits were investigated in alloxan diabetic rabbits. Although MC extracts showed significant hypoglycaemic effects (p < 0.05), these did not result in normal glucose and lipid profile levels. Regeneration of pancreatic beta cells by MC extracts was minimal, with fractional improvement produced by glibenclamide.
