Ginkgolides are the primarily active components in Ginkgo products that are popular worldwide. However, few studies have evaluated the bioavailability of ginkgolides and the effects of food on it after oral administration of ginkgolides. In this article, pharmacokinetics and absolute bioavailability of the primary components in ginkgolide extracts were evaluated in beagle dogs. For the first time, we showed that the fed dogs had significantly increased area under the concentration-time curve… 
Effects of Gut Microbiota on the Bioavailability of Bioactive Compounds from Ginkgo Leaf Extracts
Results showed that antibacterial consumption may increase the bioavailability of isorhamnetin by suppressing gut microbial metabolic activities.
What dominates the changeable pharmacokinetics of natural sesquiterpene lactones and diterpene lactones: a review focusing on absorption and metabolism
This work shows how the differences of treatment regimens and subjects alter the PK of STLs and DTLs, with emphasis on the effects from absorption and metabolism, and offers a beneficial reference for promoting the safety evaluation and maximizing the utilization of STL-DTLs.
Therapeutic promises of ginkgolide A: A literature-based review.
It is suggested that ginkgolide A may be one of the potential therapeutic lead compounds, especially for the treatment of cardiovascular, hepatological, and neurological diseases and disorders, and more studies are necessary on this hopeful therapeutic agent.
Ginkgolide A Prevents the Amyloid-β-Induced Depolarization of Cortical Neurons.
GA, a pure compound extracted from Ginkgo biloba, was found to attenuate amyloid β (Aβ)-induced abnormal depolarization in mouse primary cortical neurons and improve the memory of wild-type mice.
Bioactive natural products for the prevention and treatment of diabetes mellitus
Ginkgo biloba extract, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, genistein, resveratrol, and curcumin are among the main effective bioactive products studied due to their antiinflammatory and antioxidant effects and beneficial actions on lipid profile and glucose homeostasis.


Pharmacokinetics and tissue distribution of ginkgolide A, ginkgolide B, and ginkgolide K after intravenous infusion of ginkgo diterpene lactones in a rat model.
The data suggest that ginkgolides have difficulty crossing the blood-brain barrier and that their targets for protecting against cerebral ischaemia are located outside the central system.
Effects of food and gender on the pharmacokinetics of ginkgolides A, B, C and bilobalide in rats after oral dosing with ginkgo terpene lactones extract.
Food and gender factor showed significant effects on the pharmacokinetics of BB, GA, GB, and GC and suggested that oral doses of GTL should be lowered for fasted and female subjects, compared with the fed and male subjects, respectively.
Pharmacokinetics of bilobalide, ginkgolide A and B after administration of three different Ginkgo biloba L. preparations in humans
A sensitive LC‐ESI‐MS method with a solid‐phase extraction was established for the determination of bilobalide, ginkgolide A and ginkgolide B in human plasma; bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of
Pharmacokinetics of Ginkgolide B after Oral Administration of Three Different Ginkgolide B Formulations in Beagle Dogs
The data suggested that the exposure level of GB from HME08 and LL06 in beagle dog plasma was greatly improved compared with conventional tablets, helpful for the design and development of oral GB preparations.
Simultaneous Determination of Flavonols and Terpene Lactones in Beagle Dog Plasma by Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography-Tandem - Mass Spectrometry: 2. Application to Pharmacokinetic Studies on Ginkgo Leaf Extract
Purpose : To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of the major compounds in Ginkgo leaf dosage formulations (namely, Yikangning tablets, Ginaton tablets, Aoshi dropping pills and Yinxinke dispersible
Pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of a Ginkgo biloba extract.
The results show that a dosage of 40 mg twice daily (every 12 hrs) is accompanied by a significantly longer half-life and mean residence time (MRT) than a single 80 mg dose, even though the latter causes a higher concentration peak (Cmax).
Comparative pharmacokinetics of a proliposome formulation of Ginkgo biloba extract and Ginaton in rats by a sensitive ultra performance liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry method
A rapid and sensitive ultra performance liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry method for the simultaneous quantification of active components of GbP and a commercial tablet product (Ginaton) in rat plasma was developed and successfully validated and indicated that GBP has a significant effect on absorption, elimination and bioavailability of flavonoid lactones in comparison with Ginaton.
Determination of Ginkgolides A, B, C, J and Bilobalide in Plasma by LC-ESI (-)/MS/MS (QQQ) and its Application to the Pharmacokinetic Study of Ginkgo Biloba Extract in Rats.
The developed LC-ESI (-)/MS/MS (QQQ) method was successfully applied to assess the pharmacokinetic parameters and oral bioavailability of ginkgolides in rats after administration of GBE, which can provide basis for further clinical efficacy studies.
Simultaneous determination of ginkgolides A, B and K in human plasma by UPLC-MS/MS and its application to the pharmacokinetic study of Ginkgo Diterpene Lactone Meglumine Injection in humans
