Key ResultHypoglycaemic effect was observed with Azadirachta indica when given as a leaf extract and seed oil, in normal as well as diabetic rabbits. The effect, however, was more pronounced in diabetic animals in which administration for 4 weeks after alloxan induced diabetes, significantly reduced blood glucose levels. Hypoglycaemic effect was comparable to that of glibenclamide.

Evaluation of Hypoglycemic Activity of Neem (Azadirachta Indica) In Albino Rats
The results of the study indicate that neem oil has got the potential to reduce blood glucose levels within a short period of time and also it has potential to improve the glucose tolerance after a treatment period of 4 weeks.
Antihyperglycemic and Hypolipidemic Effect of Azadirachta indica Leaves Aqueous Extract in Alloxan-Induced Diabetic Male Rabbits
Introduction: In the present study, the hypoglycemic potentials of Azadirachta indica (AI) were studied in rabbits.The animals were divided randomly into four groups: Normal control, diabetic
A potential adjunct to insulin: Berberis lycium Royle.
The result suggested that water extract of BlR could be exploited as an adjunct to insulin; the more so, these findings could explain the basis of extract to manage diabetes mellitus.
Anti-diabetic Effect of Neem and Spirulina in Alloxan Induced Diabetic Mice
It is concluded that crude extract of neem leaves and/or spirulina could be an effective alternative therapy for diabetic patients.
Effect of herbal hypoglycemic agents on oxidative stress and antioxidant status in diabetic rats
The antioxidative potential of Momordica charantia, Azadirachta indica, Allium sativum and Ocimum sanctum was assessed in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats and it was concluded that these herbal hypoglycemic agents are not only useful in controlling the lipid peroxide levels but are also helpful in further strengthening the antioxidant potential.
Characterization of the Antidiabetic Role of Parkinsonia aculeata (Caesalpineaceae)
P. aculeata presents an antidiabetic activity and other beneficial effects that ameliorate diabetes and associated complications, and results showed that HEPA could be considered toxicologically safe.
Comparative Hypoglycemic Study of Aloe vera , Murraya koenigii and Azadirachta indica
The influence of single drug and multiple drug effect of the selected drugs on hypoglycaemic activity of the Aloe, Neem and Curry leaves individually and in combination on Wistar rats were studied.
Antidiabetic effects of Catharanthus roseus , Azadirachta indica , Allium sativum and glimepride in experimentally diabetic induced rat
The present study clearly indicated the significant antidiabetic activity of Catharanthus Roseus, Azadirachta indica and Allium sativum and supports the traditional usage of the herbal preparations by Ayurvedic physicians for the therapy of diabetics.
Protective Potential of Azadirachta indica Leaf Extract in Diabetic Rat Liver
The results of present study revealed the hepatoprotective potential of Azadirachta indica in diabetes by demonstrating less fragmentation, inflammation and decreased tissue level damage after ALE treatment, and corroborated the results of biochemical parameters.
Oral administration of AV showed potent antihyperglycemic and anti-lipidperoxidative effect in diabetic animals and the levels of protective antioxidant enzymes (SOD, GSH and PSH) were significantly increased with AV supplementation.


Effects of Azadirachta indica A Juss on some biochemical, immunological and visceral parameters in normal and stressed rats.
In stressed rats, AI significantly attenuated the stress-induced suppression of humoral immune response and gastric ulcerogenesis and the possible mechanisms involved in the effects of AI in normal and stressful situations are discussed.
Possible mechanism of antiinflammatory activity of Azadirachta indica leaf extract
The result suggests that A.indica extract's antiinflammatory effect may be due to antagonism of the deleterious effect of 5-HT and PGE1 on blood vessels.
A preliminary study on hypoglycaemic and antihyperglycaemic effects of Azadirachta indica
. Aqueous extract of Azadirachta indica was investigated for its effects on blood glucose levels in dogs. It was found to have hypoglycaemic and antihyperglycaemic effects.
Antidermatophytic activity of neem (Azadirachta indica) leaves in Vitro
The ethanolic extract was found to be more active inhibiting 90% of the isolates at a concentration of 100 ug/ml while the MIC 50s and MIC 90s of the aqueous extract were 500 and > 500 uG/ml whereas the values for ketoconazole were 1 and 2.5 ug /ml respectively.
Modulation of humoral and cell-mediated immune responses by Azadirachta indica (Neem) in mice.
The effects of A. indica (AI, Neem) were evaluated on tests of humoral and cell-mediated immune responses after 3 weeks of oral AI (leaf extract) treatment in ovalbumin immunized mice and there was an enhancement of macrophage migration inhibition, and footpad thickness after AI (100 mg/kg) treatment.
Cholesterol Metabolism in Alloxan-Induced Diabetic Rabbits
An increase in intestinal HMG-CoA reductase activity in the poorly controlled diabetic animals occurred in the absence of hyperphagia, and abnormalities in cellular cholesterol metabolism could be partly responsible for the alterations in serum cholesterol levels in diabetes.
