EGCG like the supplement Resveratrol slows blood vessel formation in tumors(angiogenesis) reducing the growth & spread rate.
In another study conducted by German scientists in 2008 showed that green tea polyphenols generally deliver a direct preventive effect against colorectal cancer recurrence.
After having their cancers or pre-malignant polyps surgically removed, patients were given either a green tea derived flavonoid mixture or a placebo. These patients were then followed for up to 4 years. The results showed 47% of the placebo group experienced full cancer recurrence or recurrence of pre-cancerous adenomas, while only 7% of the supplemented group developed only a single adenoma. Showing that sustained long-term treatment with a flavonoid mixture could reduce the recurrence rate of colon neoplasia in patients with resected colon cancer.
