Green tea could contain a new treatment for rheumatoid arthritis

News Summary:

Researchers believe many of the health benefits of green tea come from its high level of polyphenols, a group of chemicals with powerful antioxidant properties.

News Content:

A team of US researchers have discovered that a compound in green tea could have the potential to treat joint pain, inflammation and tissue damage in sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis.

The debilitating illness is an autoimmune disorder which largely affects the joints in the hands and feet, causing painful swelling for sufferers which can go on to damage cartilage, erode bones, and leave the joints deformed.

 Existing drugs however are not only expensive, but can also suppress the immune system and are not always suitable for long-term use.

To look at a possible alternative the team of researchers from Washington State University in Spokane looked at a molecule found in green tea called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).

The molecule was given to rat models of human rheumatoid arthritis with ankle sweling. After being given EGCG for a 10-day period, the team observed that the swelling was significantly reduced.

Researchers believe many of the health benefits of green tea come from its high level of polyphenols, a group of chemicals with powerful antioxidant properties. EGCG is the most studied of these polyphenols, and the most active.
