Aim: Plants derived bioactive compounds play an important role in the traditional and modern medicine and
some of the best examples are morphine, papaverine, vinblastine, vincristine and ephedrine. Flavonoids are naturally
occurred phenolic compounds found to be present in the different medicinal plants and responsible for their attractive shades
in the nature. Flavonoidal compounds have been well known in the medicine for their anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, antihyperlipidemia and anti-apoptotic activities.
Methods: In order to know the therapeutic benefit of ginkgetin in the medicine, here in the present investigation different
scientific databases have been searched to collect the important scientific information of ginkgetin with respect to the
medicinal importance and pharmacological activities. Different scientific databases such as Google, PubMed, Science
Direct, Scopus and Google Scholar have been searched to collect the important scientific information of the ginkgetin in the
present work. All the collected scientific information’s have been analyzed for the medicinal importance, pharmacological
activities and analytical aspects of ginkgetin.
Results: Literature databases analysis using various scientific databases such as Google, PubMed, Science Direct, Scopus
and Google Scholar revealed that ginkgetin is biflavonoids found to be present in the Ginkgo biloba leaves and have been
used in the traditional and allopathic medicine. Databases analysis signified that ginkgetin have effectiveness against
inflammatory disorders, lipid peroxidation, prostate cancer, DNA damage, renal cell carcinoma, osteosarcoma and small cell
lung cancer. Different analytical techniques for the quantification of ginkgetin have been also included in the present
Conclusion: Present study revealed the biological importance and therapeutic benefit of ginkgetin in the medicine which
could be used for the development of effective medicine against human disorders and associated complications.
