This randomized placebo-controlled study has evaluated whether Ginkgo biloba extract reduce risk for Alzheimer disease (AD) in 2854 elderly patients who report memory complaints.
During 5 years, subjects received 120 mg of a standardized Ginkgo biloba extract twice per day (n = 1419), or placebo (n = 1435).

The results showed that groups did not differ for AD at years 1 or 2; for cumulative incidence of AD over 5 years (4.3% vs 5.2%, P = 0.31); or for such adverse events as death, stroke, hemorrhagic events, or cardiac disorders (all P = 0.55).

Ginkgo biloba extract did not reduce risk for Alzheimer disease in elderly patients who reported memory complaints.
