In June 2011, Dr. Willmar Schwabe Pharmaceuticals sponsored a two-day expert meeting in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The meeting brought together 19 dementia experts from a range of disciplines and countries to review preclinical and clinical data on Ginkgo biloba special extract EGb 761® in the context of recent developments in the diagnosis and treatment of age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Ginkgo biloba special extract EGb 761® is formally approved and reimbursed for the symptomatic treatment of age-related cognitive decline or dementia by numerous authorities worldwide. The meeting therefore focused on relevant research questions and potential study designs with appropriate target populations to prove the efficacy of Ginkgo biloba special extract EGb 761® as a disease-modifying product in AD and to reveal further relevant modes of action.
