  Hydroalcoholic extract of Schima wallichii Choisy. (Ternstroemiaceae) bark (HESW) was investigated for its anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, and antipyretic activities. The anti-inflammatory effects of the HESW were assayed by using carrageenan and dextran (acute model) induced paw edema and cotton pellet granuloma assay (chronic model) in experimental rats. Oral administration of HESW at the doses of 150 and 300mg/kg caused dose-dependent inhibition of carrageenan and dextran induced inflammation. HESW at the doses of 150 and 300mg/kg caused significant dose-dependent reduction of the granuloma tissue formation in experimental rats. The extract at the oral doses of 50 and 100mg/kg body weight exhibited significant central and peripheral analgesic activity in acetic acid induced writhing test and hot-plate test respectively in experimental mice. Treatment with HESW at the oral doses of 150 and 300mg/kg body weight significantly reduced the yeast-provoked elevated body temperature in experimental rats in a dose-dependent manner.

  Chronic diabetes complications are mainly associated with augmented oxidative stress. Thus the present study evaluated the hypoglycemic, as well the antioxidant effect, of the methanol extract of Diospyros peregrina Gurke. (Ebenaceae) fruits on experimental diabetic rats. Oral administration of methanol extract at 150 and 300mg/kg body weight per day to diabetic rats was found to have profound hypoglycemic activity in term of reduction of fasting blood glucose level. The diabetic rats showed lower activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and reduced glutathione (GSH) content in hepatic and renal tissues as compared with normal rats. The activities of SOD, CAT, and GSH were found to be increased in extract-treated diabetic rats in selected tissues. The increased levels of lipid peroxidation (thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and hydroperoxides) in diabetic rats were also found to be reverted back to near-normal status in extract-treated groups. It was found that the extract is more effective at the dose of 300mg/kg body weight and this effect is almost comparable to that of standard glibenclamide.
