Diabetes represents a spectrum of metabolic disorders, which has become a
major health challenge worldwide (1). The unprecedented economic
development and rapid urbanization in Asian countries, particularly in
India had lead to a shift in the health problems from communicable to non –
communicable diseases. Of all the non – communicable diseases, diabetes
and cardiovascular diseases lead the list. Plants, as folk remedies, are
widely used to treat diabetes mellitus. Antihyperglycemic effects of these
plants are attributed to their ability to restore the function of pancreatic
tissues by causing an increase in insulin output or inhibit the intestinal
absorption of glucose or to the facilitation of metabolites in insulin
dependent processes. Numerous chemical compounds such as phenformin
and buformin are found to originate from the plant. Most of plants contain
glycosides, alkaloids, terpenoids, flavonoids, cartenoids, etc., that are
frequently implicated as having anti-diabetic effect (2). One such plant
namely Rosa damascena are selected to evaluate the serum marker
enzymes in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. Rosa damascena mill L, is
commonly known as Damask rose (3). It is one of the most important
species of Rosaceae family. Rosaceae are well known ornamental plants
and have been referred to as the king of flower (4). Rose oil heals
depression, grief, nervous stress and tension. It helps in the reduction of
thirst, healing cold cough, special complaints of women, wound healing,
and skin health.
