AbstractAim:To study the protein and mRNA expressions of pro-inflammatory and antiinflammatory cytokines in the brain of rats with atherosclerosis (AS) and the effects of Ginkgo biloba extract (GbE) on expressions of cytokines.Methods:The experimental model of AS in rats were established by intraperitioneal injection of vitamin D3 with high fat/cholesterol diet. GbE 100 mg/kg was administered to rats by ig. After 8 weeks, the expressions of IL-1β, TNF-α, IL-10, and IL-10R in the brain tissues… CONTINUE READING
