OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of Ginkgo biloba extract (GbE) against the bleomycin induced pulmonary fibrosis and to investigate its mechanisms. METHOD SD rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: Control group, BLM + NS group and BLM + GbE group (n = 6 in each time point of each group). Rats in each group were sacrificed on the 14th and 30th day after endotracheal injection of bleomycin A5. Lung injury through HE stain and pulmonary fibrosis through Masson stain were observed by light… Expand
Protective effect of standardized extract of Myrtus communis L. (myrtle) on experimentally bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis: biochemical and histopathological study
Myrtle extract effectively inhibited the inflammation and fibrosis of lung parenchyma in both preventive and therapeutic methods, and might be due to the reduction of tissue inflammation and inhibition of oxidative stress. Expand
Protective Effect of Gingo biloba Extract on Carbendazim-Induced Hepatotoxicity in Albino Rats
Carbendazim is a broad spectrum carbamate fungicide used in the control of various fungal pathogens. The present work studied the effect of carbendazim on the liver of albino rats and the possibleExpand
Suppressive effect of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) on topsin induced ovarian toxicity and oxidative stress in albino rats
Evidence is provided that topsin adversely damages ovarian tissue through increasing oxidative stress, while EGB treatment effectively attenuates the toxicity and oxidative effect of topsin in the ovary. Expand
Ginkgo leaf extract and dipyridamole injection for chronic cor pulmonale: a PRISMA-compliant meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
Evidence from the meta-analysis suggested that the combination of conventional treatments and GLED appeared to be effective and relatively safe for CCP, andGLED mediated therapy could be recommended as an adjuvant treatment for CCP. Expand
