ABSTRACT:
Ethanolic and aqueous leaf extract of Pithecellobium dulce was studied for its antidiabetic activity using streptozotocin- induced diabetic model in rats. The aqueous extract showed significant activity ( P<0.01) than the alcoholic extract at the tested dose level which was comparable to glibenclamide, a standard antidiabetic drug. HPTLC fingerprinting profile of the aqueous extract was also developed which would serve as reference standard for quality control of this extract.
