Further studies on this extract may lead to identify the possible mechanism of action and isolation of active principle from the same. EEVO have different medicinal properties and may able to treat diabetes & diabetics complications. Subjected to acute oral toxicity studies and found that the EEVO is safe to use up to the dose of 1000mg/kg. The EEVO was found to be in dose dependent way against alloxan-induced diabetes in rats. The reduction of the elevated blood glucose levels in diabetic rats on treatment with the extract at two different concentrations confirmed that ethanolic extract of EEV Oposses Antidiabetic activity & has shown significant effect when compared to Streptozocin administration.
