Diabetes is a chronic disease which characterized by hyperglycemia (elevated or abnormally high blood sugar levels) and other metabolic disturbances, including metabolism of lipids and haemostasis. Caesalpinia pulcherrima has previously showed strong anti-diabetic and hepatoprotective potential. The present research work was to investigate the anti-diabetic activity and hepatoprotective activity Caesalpinia pulcherrima in streptozotocin-induced (STZ) diabetic rats. The dose-dependent effects of 45days oral treatment with methanol extract of plant (200 and 300mg/kg) of CPAE on body weight, blood glucose level, total protein, albumin, liver marker enzymes and carbohydrate metabolizing enzymes were evaluated in STZ-induced diabetic rats. Oral administration methanolic extract of Caesalpinia pulcherrima of showed significant restoration of the body weight and decrease in the blood glucose level, liver marker enzymes (ALT, AST ALP) and carbohydrate metabolizing enzymes were observed in diabetic rats. These results suggest that fruit extract of Caesalpinia pulcherrima has valuable anti-diabetic activity in STZ-induced diabetic rats which is comparable to the standard drug metformin and hence might be of use in the management of diabetes.
