Green Tea Component May Have Potential for Treating HIV Infection

While green tea has been touted as having many potential benefits for maintaining general health, new research to be presented at The North American Research Conference on Complementary and Integrative Medicine held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, May 24th-27th, 2006, reveals that it may have particular promise for treating a serious condition, HIV infection and subsequent impaired immunity.

The green tea component epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has been proposed to have medicinal properties against cancer, heart disease, and the effects of HIV infection. Research has shown that HIV-1 infection causes impaired immune function by binding to the CD4 molecule on immune cells, and now this study demonstrates that EGCG binds to CD4 and inhibits HIV from attaching to host cells.

The investigators assessed whether EGCG is capable of inhibiting the binding of HIV proteins called gp120 that are essential for the virus to attach to CD4 molecules and gain entry into host cells. Specifically, they analyzed the binding ability of gp120 to EGCG-treated and untreated immune cells expressing CD4. EGCG markedly inhibited the binding of HIV gp120 proteins to these immune cells in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, molecular modeling studi
