The present study is carried out to investigate the structure of pancreas   in normal control, diabetic control and Tinospora cordifolia  extract treated albino rats. Healthy albino rats (9 months old) of both the sexes, weighing 150-190gm were used for the experiment. Rats were treated with Tinospora cordifolia whole plant extract 20ml/kg body weight, twice a day from day 2 to 30. It was observed that the cells in the pancreas in normal control animals are densely packed. In case of alloxan treated group the cell density significantly diminish. Where as in case of Tinospora cordifolia extract treated group it was observed that the empty spaces in islets created by the alloxan induced necrosis is significantly decreased.

Keywords: Insulin, diabetes, Tinospora cordifolia, albino rats.
