Green tea is a precious drink processed numbers of health benefit and known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a specific disease involved the death of neurons in controlling voluntary muscles.
In the evaluation of green tea EGCG in risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in human G93A(with function in responsible for destroying free superoxide radicals in the body) mutated Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD1) gene in mice model, scientists found that
Further analysis of the effect of green tea in mutated SOD1-G93A in transgenic mice and wild-type mice randomly divided into EGCG-treated groups (10 mg/kg, p.o) and vehicle-treated control groups to assess the motor function, starting at the age of 70 days researchers found that injection of green tea treatment mice display a strong effect in delayed the onset of disease, and extended life span, similar to those in the Hanyang study.
Interestingly, the application also decreased the over expression of microglial activation in initiated the inflammatory response due to neuronal damage and removed the damaged cells caused by phagocytosis production.
Prolonged and over expression of inflammatory cytokines may increase risk of neuron damage and in some cases death of the nerve cells.
Researchers in depth analysis showed that green tea reduced immunohistochemical reaction of NF-kappaB in response to the neuron damage (by antigens) through stimulated production of pro inflammatory factors (as antibody) and cleaved caspase-3 in induction of neuron apoptosis.
According to results of the study, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health suggested that green tea injection is associated to reduced mortality rate of patients.
