This research work focuses on determining the antidiabetic and antioxidative properties of ethanolic extract of Heriteira fomes pneumatophores. The in vitro antioxidative activity was tested through several qualitative and quantitative assays which revealed the radical scavenging activity of this plant. The in vivo antihyperglycemic activity of plant extract was confirmed by the oral glucose tolerance test in the mice model. The antidiabetic potential was tested on streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats followed by measuring several hematological parameters and lipid profiles where the extract significantly affected those parameters. The results suggest that H. fomes pneumatophores might be a potential source of antioxidative and antidiabetic bioactive compounds. Dhaka Univ. J. Pharm.
