Possible Interaction: Cilostazol and Ginkgo Biloba Whole

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Co-treatment with GbE and cilostazol synergistically decreased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in ApoE null mice fed a high-fat diet.
These results suggest that co-treatment of GbE with cilostazol has a more potent anti-atherosclerotic effect than treatment with cilostazol alone in hyperlipidemic ApoE null mice and could be a valuable therapeutic strategy for the treatment of atherosclerosis.

In in vitro assays using freshly isolated human platelets, the combination of cilostazol and GB showed superior inhibition of both the shear and the collagen-induced platelet aggregation to those of each drug alone.
In particular, the increase of survival rate in pulmonary embolism model by combination treatment of cilostazol (25 mg/kg) and GB (20 mg/kg) was higher more than two-fold of those of the respective drugs.
In this study, we have investigated if GB can potentiate the antiplatelet effects of cilostazol to explore the utility of combination therapy of cilostazol and GB against peripheral occlusive vascular diseases.
Notably, the combination of cilostazol and GB did not show a significant effect on the bleeding time, PT and aPTT increase, suggesting that GB may potentiate the antiplatelet effect of cilostazol without the prolongation of bleeding time or coagulation time.
With these studies, we suggest that combinative therapy of GB and cilostazol might offer enhanced anti-thrombotic efficacies without increasing side-effects.

The change of aggregation after administration of cilostazol plus GBE seemed to be 1.31 times higher compared with cilostazol plus placebo, without statistical significance (P = 0.20).

These abnormalities were significantly reversed by the three drugs, but most prominently by Renexin, suggesting a markedly enhanced or supra-additive effect of cilostazol and GB when administered together.
We suggest that combination therapy with GB and cilostazol provides enhanced neuroprotective effects and induces subsequent cognitive improvement in patients with chronic ischemic conditions.
