Green tea is now an acknowledged cancer preventive in Japan. Based on evidence that colorectal adenomas and prostate cancer in humans have been prevented, we review here the concept that the combination of anticancer drugs with green tea catechin synergistically induces apoptosis of human cancer cells, inhibits tumor formation in mice, and enhances inhibition of tumor growth in xenograft mouse models. As a molecular mechanism by the combination, the induction of growth arrest and DNA damage… CONTINUE READING
