Herbal Therapy: Green Tea and Bioactive Saponin In Prevention and Treatment of Lymphoma

Green tea may have a sustainable and profound effect in reduced risk and treatment of lymphoma, some scientists suggested.

Green tea, a precious drink processes numbers of health benefit known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world. However, as yin in nature herbal medicine or food, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the balance of yin-yang, induced "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity syndrome" including weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory.

Lymphoma is a medical condition characterized by cell growth disorderly and uncontrollably in the lymph nodes.There were 661,996 people living with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the United States, 2014.

According to the medical literature online, intake of green tea saponin and phenolic  may have a strong influence in lymphoma oncogenesis through some certain aspects.

In EL4 cancer cells line, injection of green bioactive saponin stimulated the immunomodulatory activity in inhibited EL4 cells line through regulated cytokine expression induced by inflammation and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) signaling pathway involved in a variety of fundamental cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, motility, stress response, apoptosis, and survival.

Furthermore, injected saponin also reduced the expression of EL4 cells line in tumor proliferation by interrupting the process of sequence of mutated DNA transcript in mRNA expression in transmitting transcript by initiating production of inflammatory cytokines to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction in making copies of alternated gene, thus attenuating risk of  tumor growth, tumor progression and immuno-suppression, activities in host anti-tumor response.

Treatment of green tea saponin also was found to induced cytotoxicity to EL4 cancer cell line without causing harm to healthy cells.

Additionally, the efficacy of tea saponin in inhibition of the proliferation and invasiveness of T-lymphoma (EL4) cells, may be also attributed to the effect of others inflammatory cytokines such as  tumor necrosis factor alphaTNF-α in induced cancer cells death and NF-κB in controlled transcription of DNA, cytokine production and cell survival through mediated the regulation of MAPK pathway in transduction (process by which foreign DNA is introduced into a cell by a virus or viral vector) and extracellular signals to cellular responses in induction of cell proliferation, differentiation, development, transformation, and apoptosis.

Tumor necrosis factor alpha TNF-α, a pro-inflammatory cytokine plays an important role in the acute phase of inflammation with function in regulation of regulation of biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis.

Nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) is a transcription factor with function in regulated expression of genes involving many biological processes including innate and adaptive immunity, inflammation and stress responses,

 In NOD/SCID mice transplanted intraperitoneally with human non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) cell lines Namalwa, RAP1-EIO and HS-Sultan, injection of green tea displayed a significant inhibition of
50% of Namalwa tumors and RAP1-EIO and HS-Sultan tumor through paralyzed tumor invasive activities.

In compared to chemotherapy drug cyclophosphamide, green tea exhibited anti-angiogenic effect in induction of.frequency of apoptotic endothelial and tumor cell and promoted tumor shrinking by blocking the formation of  new blood vessels in providing nutrients and fluid for tumor expansion.

Base on the information findings, researchers opinionated, "Further trials in NHL to evaluate whether green tea, alone or in combination with chemotherapy, may delay or prevent disease progression".
