New Research on the Health Benefits of Green Tea

The article discusses the new research on the health benefits of green tea. The most active green tea element is the epigallocatechin gallate which changes pathways underlying pathological proces...

The Bmi-1 polycomb group gene in skin cancer: regulation of function by –epigallocatechin-3-gallate

The article presents a study which examines the role of Bmi-1 polycomb group (PcG) gene in skin cancer. PcG genes encode a family of evolutionarily conserved regulators that were discovered in dr...

EGCG Suppresses Lung Cancer Cell Growth

The article discusses research which was conducted at the Hormel Institute at the University of Minnesota and found that a polyphenol compound in the catechin family called epigallocatechin galla...

Differential Responses of Skin Cancer-Chemopreventive Agents Silibinin, Quercetin, and Epigallocatechin 3-Gallate

Differential Responses of Skin Cancer-Chemopreventive Agents Silibinin, Quercetin, and Epigallocatechin 3-Gallate on Mitogenic Signaling and Cell Cycle Regulators in Human Epidermoid Carcinoma A431 Cells

Silibinin, quercetin, and epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) have been shown to be skin cancer-preventive agents, albeit by several different mechanisms. Here, we assessed whether these agents sho...

Comparison of White Tea, Green Tea, Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate, and Caffeine as Inhibitors of PhIP-Induced Colonic

Comparison of White Tea, Green Tea, Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate, and Caffeine as Inhibitors of PhIP-Induced Colonic Aberrant Crypts

There is growing interest in the possible health benefits of tea. We reported previously on the inhibition by white tea of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP)-induced colonic a...
