In this study, ginkgo biloba leaf extract (GBE) was added to sample cigarettes, including in the filter (0.8 mg/cigarette) and/or the cut filler (0.8 mg/cigarette). The effects of GBE in scavenging free radicals and reducing mutagenicity and toxicity of cigarette smoke in vivo were investigated. Smoke analysis results indicated that GBE eliminated up to 30% of free radicals. Biological experiments, conducted for both GBE cigarettes and control samples, included the Ames test, acute toxicity… CONTINUE READING
