ABSTRACT:
The hypoglycemic effect of aqueous extract of leaves of Pavonia zeylanica (AEPZ) was evaluated in normal, glucose fed and alloxan-induced diabetic rats. Oral administration of extract (200 and 400mg/kg body wt) for 7 days resulted in a significant reduction in blood glucose level. The effect was compared with 0.5gm/kg (.P) glibenclamide.
KEYWORDS:
