Effects of an ethanolic extract of Gynura procumbens on serum glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats

The effects of an ethanolic extract of leaves of G. procumbens (collected from Singapore) on blood sugar and lipid levels in streptozotocin-induced diabetic and normal rats were investigated. Metformin and glibenclamide were used as positive control drugs. The extract, at single doses of 50, 150 and 300 mg/kg, p.o., significantly suppressed elevated serum glucose levels in diabetic rats; 150 mg/kg was found to be the best hypoglycaemic dose.
