This study was planned to assess the efficacy of ginger rhizomes extract and ginger rhizomes oil in the regression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) induced in rat model in attempt to explore their mode of action against this neurodegenerative disease. Seventy male Wistar rats were divided into seven groups; G(1): Negative control group (con), G(2): Ginger extract control group orally administered 100 mg/kg of ginger rhizomes extract (GE), G(3): Ginger oil control group orally administered 100 mg/kg… Expand
