Modulation of events characteristic of carcinogenesis or of cancer cells is being emphasized as a rational strategy to control cancer. Green tea polyphenol epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has been shown to be highly active as a cancer chemopreventive agent. Certain cellular and molecular events relevant to carcinogenesis are also modified by EGCG. The present investigation was carried out to examine the effects of EGCG on the cytogenetic change and DNA damage induced by toxicant H(2)O(2) and… CONTINUE READING
