  • AIM To observe the effects of extracts of Ginkgo biloba leaves (EGb) on the Parkinson disease (PD) models induced by 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) and its ion 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+). METHODS MPTP was microinjected into substantia nigra of rats to induce a behavior change of rotation. EGb (ip, 50 or 100 mg.kg(1 . d-1) was pretreated consecutively for 19 d before MPTP administered and 1 d after MPTP administered. The contents of malondialdehyde (MDA… CONTINUE READING
