Table 1 Effects of the aqueous extract from leaves of Cissus sicyoides (AECS) on blood glucose levels in alloxan-induced diabetic rats

From: Hypoglycemic and anti-lipemic effects of the aqueous extract from Cissus sicyoides

Group Glucose levels (mg/dL)
  (Before treatment) (After treatment)
Control (11) 313.1 ± 15.04 281.0 ± 15.07
AECS   
100 mg/kg, p.o. (20) 300.1 ± 10.47 224.7 ± 13.13*
200 mg/kg, p.o. (13) 292.7 ± 8.05 227.8 ± 12.90*
  1. Values are means ± SEM of the number of animals (in parenthesis). The blood was collected from the orbital sinus, 48 h after alloxan administration, 60 mg/kg, i.v., before and 1 h after the last administration of distilled water (control group) or of AECS, administered daily for 7 days. *p < 0.05 as compared to the same group, 48 h after alloxan administration (ANOVA and Tukey as the post hoc test).
