The VABS was chosen because the impact of an agent on adaptive functioning in real life is even more important for obtaining a better quality of life than just alleviation of some symptoms. The raw scores from the interview can be also expressed as an age-equivalent score and a standard score compared with those of the subject's peers. There are also supplementary special norms for individuals with autism.
Flavonoids: an overview
Although standard scores could be more useful in subject characterization, their use as an outcome measure has been proven to be less sensitive due to floor effects and reduced variability, especially in short time periods, and thus these scores underestimate change. Conversely, scores of special norms tend to overestimate change, as a small increase in a raw score can produce a big improvement in special norm percentile rank.
Thus, raw scores and age-equivalent scores seem to be the most appropriate for use as outcome measures, with the latter being more easily interpreted as change over time. To explore other possible effects of the formulation not captured from the aforementioned instruments, we chose to record any other benefits observed and reported by the parents during its use. For this, the primary clinician K. CGI-I was also independently coded by the primary clinician with personal assessments as well as with information gathered by parents and, in the majority of cases, by the subjects' trainers.
Adverse events were systematically recorded on an adverse event form by using scales indicating severity, relationship to the study procedures, action taken, and any therapy required.

Diabetes is an increasing pandemic and several million people are affectedbythis disease worldwide. The treatment of diabetes includes lifestyle modifications, oral antidiabetic drugs and insulin. The chronic use of oral antidiabetic drugs produces undesirable side effects. Hence safe alternative medicines are always sought after. Plant phytochemicals are the best alternatives as they possess a wide spectrum of pharmacological activities.
Flavonoids are an important class of phytocomponent which is commonly present in fruits and vegetables.

Luteolin belongs toflavone class of flavonoid which has multiple health benefitslike antioxidant, antidiabetic,anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Luteolin mediates several pharmacological actions of which the role of luteolin in the treatment of diabetes is well studied.
In thisreview, the use of flavonoids as antidiabetic agents is discussed, with special reference to luteolin. Luteolin mediates its anti-diabetic potential by maintaining blood glucose levels and improving the sensitivity of body cells to insulin and these mode of actions have been discussed here. Sangeetha R. Luteolin in the Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Curr Res Nutr Food Sci ; 7 2. The prevalence of diabetes is increasing steadily and it is estimated that million people would be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes T2DM by the year The most common type of Diabetes Mellitus DM is T2DM and its occurrence can be attributed to the interaction between various genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors.
Chronic hyperglycemia results in various short term or long term microvascular complications in kidney, eyes, heart and periphera. These complications account for the morbidity and mortality seen in patients with T2DM. Management of T2DM includes diet interventions, lifestyle modifications, oral hypoglycaemic agents, insulin secretagogues, insulin sensitizers and insulin. Antidiabetic drugs have serious side effects like hyperlipidemia, fatigue and gastrointestinal tract disturbances.
Also, these oral hyperglycemia drugs lose their efficacy in due course of time. Hence proper control of diabetes continues to intrigue doctors and diabetics. CAM modalities include medicinal herbs, acupuncture, excercises, etc. Plant phytoconstituents play multiple beneficial roles apart from lowering blood glucose levels.
They function as antioxidants, anti-lipidemic agents and enhance insulin secretion as well. Traditional medicine is used for management of diabetes in many countries. The herbs used in traditional medicine are readily available, cost effective and have very low side effects unlike drugs used in conventional medicine. More than medicinal plants used in Ayurveda and other Indian medicine practices possess antidiabetic activity. These plants exert their antidiabetic potential by inhibiting enzymes involved in glucose generation or by promoting secretion of insulin.
This review focuses on the role of flavonoids, luteolin in particular, in the management of diabetes. Flavonoids are plant secondary metabolites that form a large class of compounds with polyphenolic structures. They are widely found in nuts, fruits, vegetables, grains, beverages and herbs. Flavonoids are structurally made up of two six-membered aromatic rings A and B linked by a three carbon chain which may or may not be a part of a third ring C.
They are flavones, flavonols, flavanols, flavanones, isoflavones, and anthocyanins. The individual flavonoids are differentiated by the hydroxylation and conjugation patterns. Commonly found flavones are Luteolin and apigenin.
