Abstract

In the present study, it is shown for the first time that an extract of Hintonia latiflora (HLE) which is used as an antidiabetic herbal medicine, is not only able to decrease blood glucose concentration but additionally exerts a vasodilating effect. Accordingly, this extract might have a positive influence on diabetes-associated dysfunction of blood vessels.
