EFFICACY OF GRIFFITHSIA PACIFICA KYLIN ON IN VIVO ANTI DIABETIC AND ALTERATIONS IN ENZYMATIC ACTIVITIES OF STZ INDUCED RATSAbstract
In recent years there is more research work taken in Marine sources for its pharmaceutically valuable compounds and active medicines for anticancer, anti diabetic, anti oxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory. The present study investigated for the medicinal value of red algae Griffithsia pacifica Kylin (GPK) and its alterations in enzymatic activity of STZ induced diabetic rats. The results gave significant increase in hemoglobin and glycosylated hemoglobin along with the reduction in hyperglycemia. Thus the GPK might serve as an effective natural medicine for anti-hyperglycemic effects of diabetic rats and may be promising for development of phyto medicines for diabetes.
