SUMMARY The antidiabetic potential of berberine was evaluated in a streptozotocin-nicotinamide induced type 2 diabetic rat model. On administration of graded doses of berberine to normal and experimental diabetic rats for 12 days, a significant (p<0.05) reduction was observed in fasting blood glucose levels. However, serum insulin levels failed to be stimulated on treatment with berberine. Significant changes were observed in serum lipid profiles, thiobarbituric acid reactive substance levels… 
ANTIDIABETIC AND INSULIN SENSITIZING EFFECTS OF PADINA PAVONIA AND TURBENARIA ORNATA IN STREPTOZOTOCIN/NICOTINAMIDE DIABETIC RATS
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both Padinapavonia and Turbenariaornata exhibit antidiabetic effects in a rat model of type 2 diabetes by their insulinotropic and insulin sensitizing effects.
Amelioration of oxidative stress by Tabernamontana divaricata on alloxan-induced diabetic rats
TLDR
Ethanol extract of Tabernamontana divaricata is found to be effective in type 2 diabetes in rats and to have an ameliorative effect on the associated oxidative stress.
Antihyperglycemic, antihyperlipidemic and antioxidant effects and the probable mechanisms of action of Ruta graveolens infusion and rutin in nicotinamide-streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
SUMMARY This study was designed to evaluate and compare the efficacy of infusion of Ruta graveolens (R. graveolens) and its pharmacologically active constituent, rutin, on impaired glucose tolerance,
Modulatory effect of garcinol in streptozotocin-induced diabetic Wistar rats
TLDR
Findings reveal that garcinol can be a promising antidiabetic candidate in the future and is compared with that of glibenclamide, a standard hypoglycaemic drug.
Antioxidative potential of chrysin, a flavone in streptozotocin–nicotinamide-induced diabetic rats
Abstract Increasing evidence in both experimental and clinical studies suggests that oxidative stress has been suggested as a contributory factor in development and complications of both types of
The extracts of Berberis lycium and diabetes mellitus in alloxan monohydrate induced diabetic rats
Incidence of type II diabetes is rapidly increasing worldwide. In order to identify complementary or alternative approaches to existing medications, we studied antidiabetic properties of Berberis
Antihyperglycemic activity of Albizzia lebbeck bark extract in streptozotocin-nicotinamide induced type II diabetes mellitus rats
TLDR
MEAL significantly decreased the level of serum GLU, creatinine, urea, cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, very low- density lipop Protein-ch cholesterol and increased high-densitylipoprotein levels.
In vivo assessment of antidiabetic and antioxidant activities of rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) in alloxan-diabetic rabbits.
TLDR
It was concluded that probably, due to its potent antioxidant properties, the Rosmarinus officinalis extract exerts remarkable antidiabetogenic effect.
In vitro (α-Glucosidase and α-Amylase Inhibition) and in vivo Antidiabetic Property of Phytic Acid (IP6) in Streptozotocin-Nicotinamide-Induced Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) in Rats
TLDR
IP6 significantly reduced glucose level, HbA1C, lipid profile and lipid peroxidation, and increased body weight, high density lipoprotein level and antioxidant status in liver and small intestine, indicating that IP6 possess promising in vitro and in vivo antidiabetic activity.

Antidiabetic activity of alcoholic stem extract of Coscinium fenestratum in streptozotocin-nicotinamide induced type 2 diabetic rats.
TLDR
Results were observed in the estimated parameters, thereby justifying the use of the plant in the indigenous system of medicine, and changes in body weight, serum lipid profiles, thiobarbituric acid reactive substance levels, glycosylated hemoglobin and liver glycogen levels assessed in the extract treated diabetic rats were compared with diabetic control and normal animals.
Antihyperglycemic effect of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Gongronema latifolium leaves on glucose and glycogen metabolism in livers of normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.
TLDR
The data show that the ethanolic extract from G. latifolium leaves has antihyperglycemic potency, which is thought to be mediated through the activation of HK, PFK, G6PDH and inhibition of GK in the liver.
Therapeutic effects of berberine in impaired glucose tolerance rats and its influence on insulin secretion.
TLDR
In vitro experiment showed that berberine 1-10 micromol/L facilitated insulin secretion of HIT-T15 cells and murine pancreatic islets in a dose-dependent manner and possesses anti-diabetic effects, which is related to the property of stimulating insulin secretion and modulating lipids.
Lipid peroxidation and scavenging enzyme activity in streptozotocin-induced diabetes
TLDR
It is suggested that diabetic pregnant rats and their neonates are exposed to an increased oxidative stress and that vitamin E supplementation may reduce its detrimental effects.
Effect of Vinca rosea extracts in treatment of alloxan diabetes in male albino rats.
TLDR
Administration of aqueous extracts of V. rosea flower and leaf have been found to regulate the blood sugar level in alloxan diabetic male albino rats and B-cell secretory activity resumed near- normalcy as evidenced by near-normal serum insulin concentration and electron-microscopic study proving that V.rosea manifests its beneficial activity through B- cell rejuvenation, regeneration and stimulation.

TLDR
An apparent tolerance could be attributed to the inhibitory action of chronic berberine treatment on UDP-glucuronyltransferase activity, but the mechanism of this inhibition was not elucidated.
The antihyperglycaemic activity of berberine arises from a decrease of glucose absorption.
TLDR
The results suggest that the antihyperglycaemic activity of berberine is at least partly due to its ability to inhibit alpha-glucosidase and decrease glucose transport through the intestinal epithelium.
Effect of oral methionine on blood lipid peroxidation and antioxidants in alloxan-induced diabetic rats.
TLDR
Although methionine did not affect the level of blood glucose and some of the antioxidants, it lowered the lipid peroxide content in blood, and erythrocyte lipid peroxidation activity was unaffected by methionines treatment.
Traditional plant treatments for diabetes. Studies in normal and streptozotocin diabetic mice
TLDR
It is suggested that certain traditional plant treatments for diabetes, namely agrimony, alfalfa, coriander, eucalyptus and juniper, can retard the development of streptozotocin diabetes in mice.
Effect of curcumin on the advanced glycation and cross-linking of collagen in diabetic rats.
TLDR
The significance of free radicals in the accumulation of AGEs and cross-linking of collagen in diabetes confirms the significance of curcumin administration for the prevention of A GE-induced complications of diabetes mellitus.
