Green tea polyphenols could help reduce spinal cord injury effects

Green tea polyphenols could help reduce spinal cord injury effects

August 27 2014. The July 2014 issue of Neural Regeneration Researchreported a protective effect for green tea polyphenols against damage that occurs following injury to the spinal cord.

For their study, researchers at First Affiliated Hospital of Liaoning Medical University in Jinzhou, China utilized cultures of rat spinal cord neurons treated with hydrogen peroxide as a model of oxidative damage. Untreated cells served as a control. Varying concentrations of green tea polyphenols were administered for 24 hours prior to evaluation of cell viability, levels of malondialdehyde (a marker of oxidative stress) and superoxide dismutase (SOD, an antioxidant enzyme produced in the body), and the expression of genes and proteins related to apoptosis (programmed cell death).
