The hypoglycaemic effects of two quinolizidine alkaloids: lupanine and 2-thionosparteine were examined in non-diabetic and in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The model of experimental diabetes can be considered to be related to diabetes mellitus type 2 with regards to the impairment of beta-cells' secretory function. A single intraperitoneal injection(More)
