Abstract

The administration of green tea, black tea, or (-)-epigallocatechin gallate inhibited the growth of established nonmalignant and malignant tumors in tumor-bearing mice. In experiments with black tea, we found that its oral administration inhibited DNA synthesis and enhanced apoptosis in both nonmalignant and malignant tumors in tumor-bearing mice.
