  • AIM In the present study, we investigated whether the therapeutic dosages of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb) and Aspirin (ASP) might synergistically suppress oxidative stress through regulating the expressions of LOX-1 and phosphorylated p38MAPK (p-p38MAPK) in human coronary artery endothelial cells (HCAECs) ex vivo. METHODS HCAECs were stressed with activated platelets (2×10(8)/ml) and followed by ASP (1, 2 or 5 mmol/l), EGb (4, 40 or 400 μg/ml) and combinational (1 mmol/l ASP and 40μg/ml EGb… CONTINUE READING
