About these proceedings


In this compendium the clinical and pharmacological properties of Ginkgo biloba, a standardized drug and the subject of increasing worldwide interest, are closely portrayed. Results of studies are presented here which illustrate the influence of Ginkgo on haemodynamic and rheologic parameters, metabolism and neurotransmitters. In addition to papers reporting on experimental research, data are also presented which provide firm interdisciplinary evidence for its successful therapeutic application, above all in the following indication areas: cerebral insufficiency with accompanying symptoms of dizziness, tinnitus, headache and memory loss, lability of mood and anxious states, and peripheral arterial disease.
