Abstract:
The medicinal plant Cassia sophera was analysed for screening of phytochemical and anti-diabetic activity. The objective of the present study was to investigate anti-diabetic activity of Cassia sophera bark, using Streptozocin induced diabetic rats as model. The biochemical study was carried out and the results shown that ethanolic extract of dose 400 mg/Kg has more effective against Streptozocin induced diabetic rats. We conclude from the present study that the ethanolic extract of bark of Cassia sophera may be beneficial in the management of diabetes.
