Table 1: Blood glucose levels following a single oral dose of cytopiloyne in fed db/db mice. Diabetic db/db mice aged 6 to 8 weeks, with free access to food, were grouped and tube-fed with vehicle, glimepiride (GLM) at 2.5 mg/kg/day, and cytopiloyne (CP) at 0.1, 0.5, and 2.5 mg/kg/day. A half-hour after tube feeding was set as time 0. Blood samples were collected from the mice at the indicated time intervals (0, 1, 2, and 4 h). The blood glucose levels were determined using a glucometer. The number of mice () tested is indicated in parentheses in the first column.
