(-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major polyphenol of green tea, has shown excellent effects in preventing, as well as treating, many cancers including prostate cancer (PCa) in preclinical model systems. However its applicability to humans has met with limited success due to several issues including its limited bioavailability. We employed the use of nanotechnology to improve the outcome of cancer chemoprevention and coined the concept ‘nanochemoprevention’. Recently, we reported the… Expand
