Ginkgo biloba Extract EGb 761®: From an Ancient Asian Plant to a Modern European Herbal Medicinal Product

This chapter differs from the other chapters in the book in a number of aspects. First of all, it is not about traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and hence does not describe internationally recognized standards which need to be established in the future to scientifically validate the traditional expertise on TCM. Rather, this chapter outlines the development process and present knowledge on EGb 761®, a special extract from leaves of Ginkgo biloba L. Although EGb 761® is produced from a plant which is native to China and other Asian countries; the extract was developed as a Western medicine.
