The aim of the present study was to evaluate the
glycemic control, antioxidant, pancreas and liver protective
effect of 2β-hydroxybetulinic acid 3β-caprylate (HBAC)
from Euryale ferox Salisb. seeds on streptozotocin induced
diabetic rats. The active principle was isolated from Euryale
ferox Salisb. seeds extract by utilizing chromatographic tech-
niques. The rats were divided into seven experimental groups.
