  author={Safinaz S. Ibrahim},
Among t he num erous co-adjuvant therapies, which co uld influence the i ncidence and progression of diabetic co mplications, flavonoids, naturally occurring ant ioxidants, are currently being tested in several clinical and e xperimental trials. However, the protective efficiency of these compounds against complications in diabetic rat brain have rarely been investigated. 2- The aim of the present study is to e valuate the protective effect of hesperidin against diabetes-induced n europathy in… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Protective effect of hesperidin against N,N′‐dimethylhydrazine induced oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptotic response in the colon of Wistar rats

Hesperidin efficiently protects against DMH induced colon toxicity by modulating oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptosis and attenuated inflammatory and apoptotic markers expression.

The Protective Value of Hesperidin in Mitigating the Biochemical Perturbations and Trace Element Alterations Induced by Acrylonitrile in Rats

Hemperidin administration is found to ameliorate the oxidative stress induced by AN, consistent with the reported antioxidant activity of hesperid in rats.

Protective effect of ethanolic extract of Shorea robusta resin in streptozotocin induced diabetic rat model of neuropathy

The results suggest that S. robusta resin can limit neurodegenerative changes in sciatic nerve by suppression of STZ-induced hyperglycemia associated oxidative stress may represent promising agents to improve peripheral nervous system functioning.

Hesperidin, a flavanoglycone attenuates experimental diabetic neuropathy via modulation of cellular and biochemical marker to improve nerve functions

In combination with insulin, hesperidin not only attenuated the diabetic condition but also reversed neuropathic pain via control over hyperglycemia as well as hyperlipidemia to down-regulate generation of free radical, release of pro-inflammatory cytokines aswell as elevation in membrane bound enzyme.

Anti-depressant effect of hesperidin in diabetic rats.

Hsp exerted anti-depressant effect in diabetic rats, which may have been partly mediated by its amelioration of hyperglycaemia as well as its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, the enhancement of neurogenesis, and changes in the levels of monoamines in the brain.


The results suggest that Pimpinella tirupatiensis exhibit a neuroprotective effect by accelerating brain antioxidant defense mechanisms and down regulating the MDA content to the normal levels in the diabetic rats.

Evaluation of the Antioxidant and Hypoglycaemic Potentials of the Leaf Extracts of Stachytarphyta jamaicensis (Verbenaceae)

Hyperglycaemia is commonly the end point for all types of diabetes mellitus and is the factor that is measured to evaluate and manage the efficacy of diabetes therapy.

Hesperidin, a plant flavonoid accelerated the cutaneous wound healing in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats: Role of TGF-ß/Smads and Ang-1/Tie-2 signaling pathways

Together, treatment with hesperidin accelerate angiogenesis and vasculogenesis via up-regulation of VEGF-c, Ang-1/Tie-2, TGF-β and Smad-2/3 mRNA expression to enhance wound healing in chronic diabetic foot ulcers.



Hesperidin, a citrus bioflavonoid, decreases the oxidative stress produced by carbon tetrachloride in rat liver and kidney

A protective effect of hesperidin (HDN) in CCl4 induced oxidative stress in rat liver and kidney can be correlated to its direct antioxidant effect.

Protective effects of lemon flavonoids on oxidative stress in diabetic rats

It is demonstrated that dietary lemon flavonoids of eriocitrin and hesperidin play a role as antioxidant in vivo.

The effect of flavonoid treatment on the glycation and antioxidant status in Type 1 diabetic patients.

The results suggest that the flavonoid-induced decrease in glycation is associated with an increase in the antioxidant component dependent on the levels and activities of thiol-containing proteins such as glutathione peroxidase.

In vitro scavenger and antioxidant properties of hesperidin and neohesperidin dihydrochalcone.

Anti-diabetic activity of green tea polyphenols and their role in reducing oxidative stress in experimental diabetes.

Effect of Long‐Term Treatment with a Purified Micronized Flavonoid Fraction on Pancreatic Mononuclear Cell Infiltration in Diabetic BB Rats

The inhibitory effect of S 5682 on pancreatic mononuclear cell infiltration may be useful for a complementary treatment to decrease the development of insulitis in human insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

The hypoglycemic effects of hesperidin and naringin are partly mediated by hepatic glucose-regulating enzymes in C57BL/KsJ-db/db mice.

The current results suggest that hesperidin and naringin both play important roles in preventing the progression of hyperglycemia, partly by increasing hepatic glycolysis and glycogen concentration and/or by lowering hepatic gluconeogenesis.

Protective effect of a purified flavonoid fraction against reactive oxygen radicals. In vivo and in vitro study.

These scavenging properties imply that S 5682 has a pharmacological action on capillary hyperpermeability as well as an anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous action.

[Quercetin and hesperidin decrease the formation of nitric oxide radicals in rat liver and heart under the conditions of hepatosis].

The flavonoids quercetin and hesperidin exert a distinct antioxidant action, substantialy suppressing the hepatosis-induced increase in the intensity of NO radical generation.
