  author={DC Sornalakshmi and Tresina Soris and P. V. A. Lincy},
ABSTACT The effect of ethanol extract of whole plant of Hedyotis leschenaultiana on Oral Glucose Tolerance was determined. Glibenclamide (600μg/kg) was used as reference drug for comparison. Ethanol extract of Hedyotis leschenaultiana whole plant was evaluated for Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) in normal and alloxan induced diabetic rats. Blood glucose concentration was evaluated at 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after treatment in both cases. The extract significantly (p < 0.001) reduced…
