Sperm H 2 O 2 and NO levels. Higher (A) H2O2 and (B) NO levels were observed in diabetic rats as compared to normal, non-diabetic rats. Administration of C. borivilianum root extract resulted in decreased H2O2 and NO levels. 250C: 250 mg/kg/day C. borivilianum root extract; 500C: 500 mg/kg/day C. borivilianum root extract, 600G: 600 μg/kg/day glibenclamide. n = 6 per treatment group, *p < 0.05 as compared to normal, non-diabetic control rats, p < 0.05 as compared to non-treated diabetic rats.
