  1. Results are expressed as Mean ± SD. Statistical analysis within groups was done using paired t-test. SD Standard deviation, N-C Normal Control, N-Cd Normal treated with CdCl2, N-P Normal treated with plant extract; N-PCd Normal treated with both plant extract and CdCl2, DM-P Diabetic treated with plant extract, DM-PCd Diabetic treated with both plant extract and CdCl2. *, ** and *** indicate statistically significant (p < 0.05, p < 0.01 and < 0.001) level from a paired t-test
