A six-member research team led by Govind Prasad Dubey had invented the drug for which the US had granted the patent.

Type-II diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that is primarily characterised by insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency and hyperglycemia,’ the background note on the herbal drug said.
