  1. The values represent as Mean ± SEM for 6 rats each. The results are expressed in ng/mL. α = (P > 0.05), β = (P < 0.05), γ = (P < 0.01) represents comparison of 0 min reading of each group with 20,30,40,50 and 60 min. * = (P > 0.05), ** = (P < 0.05), *** = (P < 0.01) represents comparison of Group-III with Group-I. p = P > 0.05), q = (P < 0.05), r = (P < 0.01) compared Group IV with Group III. Group-I Normal Control; Group-II Normal treated (AEMC); Group-III Diabetic control; Group-IV diabetic treated (AEMC)
