beta Amyloid (Abeta) treatment induced free radical production and increased glucose uptake, apoptosis and cell death in PC12 nerve cells. Addition of the standardized extract of Ginkgo biloba leaves, EGb 761 together with the Abeta protein prevented, in a dose-dependent manner, the Abeta-induced free radical production, increased glucose uptake, apoptosis and cell death. However, pretreatment of the cells with EGb 761 did not rescue the cells from the Abeta-induced toxicity although it… CONTINUE READING
