Abstract

This study was carried out to study Anti-diabetic effect of the plant Daphne mucronata extract in alloxan induced diabetic rabbits. To the first fifteen healthy rabbits taken and divided them into five groups as each group contains three numbers of rabbits. Group one kept in normal condition means no induction or treatment observed. Group second was given the diabetic control dose in quantity (12mg/kg). Group three also treated with the dose rate (125mg/kg) the D. Mucronata (methanol) extract. Similarly group no four was treat with the subject extract in the concentration of (225mg/kg). And the last fifth group of rabbits had the dosage of extract (325mg/kg). This mechanism of entrance was orally ingestion and the treatment duration was eight hours, after each of the next two hours from the start the blood samples were collected, serum separated and the glucose level determined by the method known by Kit method. After all the observations we reached to an impressive conclusion that the D. Mucronata (methanol) extract has significant potential to reduce blood glucose level and also recognized to be effective to reduce the blood SGPT enzyme level, so it can be suggested that this plant has such  antidiabetic and SGPT reduction effect.
