  • Investigations evaluating the protective effect of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb) on gentamicin (GM) ototoxicity were undertaken. Guinea pigs treated with 5 mg/kg gentamicin sulfate on the round window niche (RWN) showed acute changes on electrocochleogram and hair cell or microvilli damage on scanning electron microscopy (SEM). There was accumulation of GM in the whole cochlea, especially in the organ of Corti, stria vascularis, and type III fibrocyte on immunohistochemical study. However, the… CONTINUE READING
