abstract

  • Homocysteine is an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. This study showed that ginkgolide A, a major constituent of Ginkgo biloba, effectively prevents homocysteine-induced endothelial dysfunction and molecular changes in porcine coronary arteries. This study underscores potential clinical benefits and applications of ginkgolide A in controlling homocysteine-associated vascular injury and cardiovascular disease.
