Philadelphia-based researchers led by Dr James Cardelli from the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center in a study on 26 men diagnosed with prostate cancer and scheduled for surgery, found that feeding these patients with 4 capsules of Polyphenon E for 34 days have reduced significantly HGF, VEGF and PSA levels.
HGF (hepatocyte growth factor) and VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor are indicators of developing cancer. PSA (prostate specific antigen) is a protein found only in the prostate with increased levels in prostate cancer victims.
Polyphenon E is a chemical compound found in green tea and 4 capsules of Polyphenon E is equivalent to 12 cups of green tea a day.
