  • Owing to increasing evidence showing the importance of lipid peroxidation in oxidative stress in vivo, the role and evaluation of antioxidants have received much attention. Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE), well-known as an efficient drug against diseases induced by free radicals, has been suggested to exert its effect by antioxidant action. A method was established to determine the activity of GBE as a hydrogen donor by stoichiometric and kinetic studies, and GBE was compared with several other… CONTINUE READING
