This research aims to investigate the hypoglycemic activity of methanolic extract of Tectona grandis root in alloxan induced diabetic albino rats. A comparison was made between the action of Tectona grandis methanolic extract and a known antidiabetic drug glibenclamide (0.5mg/kg p.o).The methanolic extract of Tectona grandis linn. root was administered orally at different doses to normal rats. The methanolic extract at 500 mg/kg dose level exhibited significant (p<0.05) hypoglycemic activity.
