Cancer preventive and therapeutic effects of EGCG, the major polyphenol in green tea

Publication date: March 2018Source: Egyptian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences, Volume 5, Issue 1Author(s): Islam Rady, Hadir Mohamed, Mohamad Rady, Imtiaz A. Siddiqui, Hasan MukhtarAbstract(-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major bioactive catechin in green tea (GT) has been studied for almost past thirty years as an agent initially for its cancer chemoprevention effects and then for its cancer chemotherapeutic ability. This agent has shown considerable anti-cancer effects in a variety of preclinical cell culture and animal model systems. However, its clinical application to human patients is hampered by a variety of reasons that includes its stability and bioavailability. As a result, an increased number of studies assessing the effects derived from the use of EGCG are been employed in combination with other agents or by utilizing innovative carrier settings. Here, we summarize the current understanding of the anticancer effects of EGCG and its effects with other combinations on different kinds of cancers. Further, we also present the available information for the possible mechanism of action of EGCG.

In this study, 1452 patients were enrolled. Independent risk factors for recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) were analyzed for patients with and without CSPH. For HCC patients without CSPH, multivariate analysis suggested that microvascular invasion (MVI), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) ≥ 3, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) ≥ 150, tumor size> 5 cm, and the presence of a satellite lesion were independently associated with RFS. MVI, NLR ≥ 3, PLR ≥ 150, and advanced Barcelona clinical liver cancer (BCLC) stage contributed to mortality. However, neither NLR nor PLR showed any prognos...
