Özet

Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis and many antioxidant agents have been studied for prevention and treatment of the disease in animals and humans. We therefore examined whether Ginkgo biloba (Gb), a flavonoid-rich antioxidant, inhibits bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis in rats.
