    Background: Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrine disorders accompanied with many metabolic syndromes. Use of herbal medicines has always been an option to treat a great number of diseases such as diabetes and its complications. The aim of the present study is to investigate the liver protective effects of Syzygium cumini seed extract in alloxan induced diabetic Swiss albino mice. Methods: Eighteen Swiss albino mice (weighing 28e32 g) were randomly divided into control, alloxan treated and S. cumini treated mice group. Diabetes was induced in mice by injecting intraperitoneally alloxan monohydrate at dose of 150 mg/kg body weight. Aqueous extracts of S. cumini seed at dose of 250 mg/kg body weight were given orally in diabetic mice daily for three weeks after established LD50 value. Results: In diabetic mice, the SGOT, SGPT, Bilirubin and serum glucose levels were significantly increased in comparison with the control groups. Statistical analysis ( p < 0.05) of the data indicated that aqueous extract of S. cumini were significantly decrease serumcontents of liver enzymes (SGOT, SGPT and Bilirubin) as well as serum glucose in treated groups. Conclusion: The results suggested that aqueous extracts of S. cumini seed possesses liver protective effect against alloxan induced diabetic mice.
