    The effect of Boswellia serrata standardized extract (BSE) and Boswellic acids (BA) on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of glimepiride in normal as well as diabetic rats was studied. In normal and streptozotocin induced diabetic rats the combination of glimepiride with BSE and BA increased all the pharmacokinetic parameters, such as Cmax, AUC0-n, AUCtotal, t½, MRT and decreased the clearance, Vd markedly as compared with the control group. In pharmacodynamic studies, the combination of glimepiride with BSE and BA provided significant protection against the diabetes induced alterations in the biochemical parameters. In addition, the combination of glimepiride with BSE and BA also improved the total antioxidant status and reduced the lipid peroxide levels significantly in diabetic rats compared with BSE, BA and glimepiride alone treated groups. The results revealed that .. View More»
