Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) induces apoptosis by the activation of caspase-3 in oral cavity cancer cells.

We have investigated whether Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) induces apoptosis of oral cavity cancer cells and attempted to characterize the apoptotic pathway activated by EGb 761. The inhibition of SCC 1483 oral cavity cancer cells proliferation was noted from 250 micro/ml of EGb 761. Apoptosis was observed after 24 h of incubation with 250 microg/ml EGb… CONTINUE READING
