Plants and plant products have been used for diabetes treatment throughout the world, since ages. However, only few of them have been validated scientifically. Recently, a large number of diverse animal models have been developed for study and better understanding of the pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus and its treatment, and thus, new drugs have been introduced in the market. The aim of this work is to review some in vitro and the available animal models of diabetes which have been used as tools to investigate the mechanism of action of potential antidiabetic agents. At present, the evaluation of raw plant materials used as traditional treatments for diabetes is not subjected to rigorous tests like conventional antidiabetic medicines; and natural products derived from plants, have been tested in chemically induced diabetes model. The aim of this review is to designing new strategies for novel antidiabetic drug development to treat this serious disease that represents a global public health problem.
