Exposure to γ-radiation and/or lead causes numerous malfunctions in the brain. The present study was performed to investigate the possible protective effect of ginkgo biloba extract in ameliorating the biochemical changes induced in brain of rats by single exposure to 6Gy whole body γ-radiation and/or i.p. administration of lead acetate (25 mg/kg) daily for seven days. Ginkgo was orally administered in two dose levels 50 and 100 mg/kg for 7 successive days. Animals were classified into 10… CONTINUE READING
