ABSTRACT:
The number of people afflicted by type-2 diabetes is rapidly increasing 382 million people in the world are estimated to have type-2 diabetes today. In Denmark, more than 20 % of the population is afflicted, meaning that one in four adults is affected. Currently, there are very few herbal products on the marked in Denmark for management of type-2 diabetes. This prompted the aim of identifying the best plants in the world for the various targets involved in type-2 diabetes. Our research takes its starting point in ethnopharmacological rescarch already performed, mining results, selecting the most promising candidates, then evaluating them in our lab for activity on type-2 diabetes targets, to find the truly promising plants. Preclinical data are required if herbal products are to be registered with the health authorities, and thereby becoming available for the patients.
