Effects of anti-hyperglicemic of yacon leaf (Smallanthus sonchifolius) ethanolic extracts using zebrafish as a model

This study aims to investigate the anti-hyperglicemic effects of yacon leaf (Smallanthus sonchifolius) using zebrafish. In this study, zebrafish is used as a model, with alloxan compounds to induce hyperglicemic. The induction stage consists of 3 phases: in the first the zebra was induced at 0.3% for 30 min, in the second stage, it was transferred to a 3% D-glucose solution for 30 min, and in the last, immersion was...
