The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective effects of D-limonene on the levels of lipid peroxidation by-products and antioxidant defence systems in the plasma and tissues of normal and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes rats. The experimental diabetes was induced in rats by a single dose of STZ (40 mg/kg i.p.) injection, and treatment with(More)
Hyperlipidemia is an associated complication of diabetes and also a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. The present study was designed to examine the antihyperlipidemic effect of asiatic acid (AA) in streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in male Wistar rats by a single intraperitoneal injection of STZ (40 mg/kg b.w.).(More)
Azelaic acid (AzA), a C9 linear α,ω-dicarboxylic acid, is found in whole grains namely wheat, rye, barley, oat seeds and sorghum. The study was performed to investigate whether AzA exerts beneficial effect on hepatic key enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism in high fat diet (HFD) induced type 2 diabetic C57BL/6J mice. C57BL/6J mice were fed high fat diet for(More)
Succinic acid mono ethyl ester (EMS) was recently proposed as an insulinotropic tool in the treatment of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of EMS on oxidative stress in a streptozotocin (STZ)-nicotinamide induced type 2 diabetic model. The EMS was injected intraperitoneally at 8 micro mol/g body(More)
This study was aimed to evaluate the preventive efficacy of syringic acid (SA) on acetaminophen (APAP)-induced nephrotoxicity. Nephrotoxicity was induced in male Wistar albino rats by the administration of a single dose of 750 mg/kg APAP intraperitoneally. In this study, we evaluated the levels of renal markers, lipid peroxidation markers (thiobarbituric(More)
In this study, we examined the in vivo effect and the mechanism of asiatic acid (AA) on glucose uptake in an insulin target skeletal muscle. Diabetic rats showed significantly increased levels of plasma glucose, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, and lipid hydroperoxides, decreased levels of insulin and antioxidants, and impairment in(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to investigation the effect of Diasulin, a poly herbal drug composed of ethanolic extract of ten medicinal plants on blood glucose, plasma insulin, tissue lipid profile, and lipidperoxidation in alloxan induced diabetes. METHODS Ethanolic extract of Diasulin a, poly herbal drug was administered orally (200 mg/kg body(More)
Excess fat intake induces hyperinsulinaemia, increases nutrient uptake and lipid accumulation, amplifies ROS generation, establishes oxidative stress and morphological changes leading to tissue injury in the liver, kidney and heart of high-fat diet (HFD)-fed mice. The effect of azelaic acid (AzA), a C9 α,ω-dicarboxylic acid, against HFD-induced oxidative(More)
Asiatic acid (AA), a triterpenoid derivative of Centella asiatica, has shown significant biological effects of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Aim of this investigation was to evaluate the antihyperglycemic effect of AA on the activities of hepatic enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. To induce(More)
Rebaudioside A (Reb A), a major constituent of Stevia rebaudiana, was recently proposed as an insulinotropic agent. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the antihyperglycemic effect of Reb A on the activities of hepatic enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in adult male Albino Wistar(More)
