Abstract


The present study aimed to investigate the antidiabetic effect of alcoholic seed extract of
Aegel marmelos in comparison with glibenclamide in in vivo using alloxan rat model.The
diabetic rats were orally given glibenclamide and alcoholic seed extract of Aegle marmelos
for 21 days. The effects were studied in vivo. Oral administration of alcoholic seed extract of
Aegle marmelos decrease the level of serum glucose, total cholesterol (TCH),
triglycerides(TG), low density lipoprotein (LDLP), very low density lipoprotein(VLDLP)
significantly while increasing HDL-cholesterol. Alcoholic seed extract of Aegle marmelos
was also evaluated for oral glucose tolerance(OGTT) characteristics. In conclusion, alcoholic
seed extract of Aegle marmelos had potential antidiabetic activity. Further it has been
observed that the seed extract have positive effect on liver and kidney parenchyma.
