Antihyperglycaemic activity of Sinularia firma and Sinularia erecta in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats


The present study describes antihyperglycaemic activity in the two soft corals Sinularia firma Tixier Durivault and Sinularia erecta Tixier Durivault (phylum: Coelentrata). The methanolic extracts of S. firma and S. erecta exert a blood-glucose-lowering effect of 14.5% and 16.1%, respectively, on streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats at an oral dose of… (More)
