ABSTRACT:
The Antidiabetic activity of fruits and seeds ethanolic extract of Luffa acutangula (Cucurbitaceae) was studied in a Streptozotocin {STZ) induced diabetic in rats. The acute toxicity and lethality (LD50) and the Phytochemicals analysis of the extract were also evaluated. The results showed that the extract (200 and 400 mg/kg) significantly (P<0.05) reduced fasting blood sugar of Streptozotocin diabetic rats in a dose-related manner, with maximum hypoglycemic effect at after 21 days. Acute toxicity and lethality test of the extract in rats gave an oral LD50 greater than 5 g/kg. It is clearly evident from the study that the streptozotocin administration caused the significant increase in the blood glucose level at 0 day (p<0.001). The 50% ethanolic extract of the fruits of Luffa acutangula showed the significant effect compared with the respective diabetic control group, decrease the blood glucose level at a dose of 200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg (p<0.001), the standard drug glibenclamide also showed the significant decrease the blood glucose level after 21 days (241.33-105.33, p<0.001). Finally the 400 mg/kg and the standard drug showed the significant decrease in the blood glucose level after 21 days treatment (p<0.001). The findings indicate that the leaves of Luffa Acutangula may be beneficial as an Antidiabetic therapy.
