Introduction: This dreadful disease is found in all parts of the world and is becoming a serious threat to mankind health. Herbal formulations are becoming popular now days particularly in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes.
Aim & Objectives: To investigate the antidiabetic activities of polyherbal formulation (PHF) containing hydroalcoholic extracts of different plants in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats by administering oral doses (200 and 400 mg/kg body weight).
Method: Animals were divided into diabetic and nondiabetic groups. Rats were fed with a high-fat diet (HFD) and induced with a single low dose of STZ (35 mg/kg) i.p. Diabetic rats were treated with formulation (200 and 400 mg/kg) and metformin 250 mg/kg. Blood glucose levels, Lipid profile and gluconeogenic enzymes were determined. Histopathological changes in diabetic rat organs (pancreas, liver, and kidney) were also observed.
Result: Treatment of diabetic rats with PHF and metformin decreased plasma glucose and lipid profile levels. Formulation treated rats showed significant (P < 0.001) decrease in the activities of gluconeogenic enzymes. Histological examination of various organ tissues of normal control, diabetic control, and drug-treated rats revealed significant results.
Summary & Conclusion: The experimental study showed that a persistent and substantial decrease in the average blood glucose level of diabetic rats was observed for 28 days. PHF demonstrated substantial antidiabetic activity similar to the standard drug. The formulation will emerge as a possible mixture that may challenge the synthetic drug.
Keywords: Polyherbal, formulation, antidiabetic activity, medicinal plants, Type 2 diabetes, Insulin

ASSOCIATION OF PHARMACEUTICAL TEACHERS OF INDIA
An association found by the pioneers of Pharmacy education in India in 1966 by leading personalities like Prof. M. L. Schroff, Prof. G. P Srivastava and others, has come a long way in creating better intercommunication and promotion of excellence in pharmacy education. Through its tailor-made mission and objectives, the association has provided a single platform in bringing together teachers of pharmacy education from all over the country. This has helped in the achievement of excellent standards and to develop new technological methods in pharmacy education through the exchange of views amongst the teaching members. The emergent world today, with unbelievable sophistication under its belt, demands for technically sound and highly knowledgeable pharmacists. The contribution of a teacher is thereby quite demanding. A Teacher apart from being an educator also contributes to science as a researcher, helps in business development as a consultant to pharmaceutical industry and also creates social awareness as a community pharmacist.
