The effect of Ginkgo Biloba glycoside on the blood viscosity and erythrocyte deformability

The effect of Ginkgo Biloba glycoside on the blood viscosity and erythrocyte deformability In this study, we investigated the effect of ginkgoglycoside in two different doses (19.2 mg/day and 28.8 mg/day) on blood viscosity and erythrocyte deformability in 27 patients suffering from cerebrovascular insufficiency. The patients were divided into two groups randomly consisting of 13 and 14 patients respectively. Both groups received 28.8 mg/day ginkgoglycoside between the 1st and 15th day. The first group received the same dose until the end of the 30th day, whereas the dose administrated to the second group was reduced to 19.2 mg/day. In the first group, during 30 days a significant decrease in blood viscosity and a significant increase in erythrocyte deformability were observed. In the second group on the other hand, after dose reduction, the effect of the drug on blood viscosity and erythrocyte deform ability were diminished. Improvement of symptoms including vertigo, tinnutus, headache and forgetfulness in the first group was found to be significantly different from the 2nd group at day 30 in a dose dependent manner. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation IOS Press

Abstract

In this study, we investigated the effect of ginkgoglycoside in two different doses (19.2 mg/day and 28.8 mg/day) on blood viscosity and erythrocyte deformability in 27 patients suffering from cerebrovascular insufficiency. The patients were divided into two groups randomly consisting of 13 and 14 patients respectively. Both groups received 28.8 mg/day ginkgoglycoside between the 1st and 15th day. The first group received the same dose until the end of the 30th day, whereas the dose administrated to the second group was reduced to 19.2 mg/day. In the first group, during 30 days a significant decrease in blood viscosity and a significant increase in erythrocyte deformability were observed. In the second group on the other hand, after dose reduction, the effect of the drug on blood viscosity and erythrocyte deform ability were diminished. Improvement of symptoms including vertigo, tinnutus, headache and forgetfulness in the first group was found to be significantly different from the 2nd group at day 30 in a dose dependent manner.
