Abstract

(-)-Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the main polyphenolic constituent of green tea, inhibits tumor promotion and chemical carcinogenesis in animal experimental systems. Here we report that the peroral administration of EGCG inhibited metastasis of B16 melanoma cell lines, such as B16-F10 and BL6, in both experimental and spontaneous systems.
