Abstract: The untapped wealth of plant kingdom has become target for the search by multinational drug companies and research institutes for new drugs and lead molecules. There has been a global resurgence of interest in plant-based drugs probably due to the reasons like i) high cost (Upwards of $ 2000 million) of synthetic drugs, ii) non-renewable source of basic raw materials of synthetic drugs, iii) environmental pollution by the chemical industry iv) long history of use and better patient tolerance as well as public acceptance of plant based drugs, v) renewable sources of plant drugs, vi) cultivation and processing of plant drugs is environmental friendly, vii) plants constitute to be a major source of new lead molecules. Though herbal medicines are effective in the treatment of various ailments, very often these drugs are unscientifically exploited or improperly used. Therefore, these plant drugs deserve detailed studies in the light of modern science. The modern system of medicine still lack in providing suitable medicament for a large number of disease conditions like peptic ulcer and diabetes mellitus and in spite of tremendous advances made in the discovery of new therapeutic compounds. Among these ailments, diabetes mellitus is one of the most prevalent health problems in the world, and is more alarming in the developing countries like India and china. The development of herbal drugs for peptic ulcer and diabetes mellitus is a major thrust area in natural product research and pharmacology and need through investigation. There are no scientific reports on anti-oxidant activity, anti-ulcer activity and antidiabetic activity of Ficus racemosa Linn. fruit extract and Aegle marmelos root extract. Hence, the present research work has been undertaken with an objective to investigate selected herbal drugs, Ficus racemosa Linn. (Gular) and Aegle marmelos (Bael) to screen biological activities like anti-oxidant, anti-ulcer and anti diabetic activities in various experimental animal models.
