Ability to Slow Disease Progression and Safety and Tolerability of Green Tea Polyphenols in Early Parkinson's Disease
Previous studies have shown that tea drinking is associated with a reduced of risk for Parkinson's disease (PD). Green tea polyphenols (GTPs), the major components of green tea, have been shown to protect against neuronal loss both in cultures and pre-clinical models after exposed to toxins that selectively damage dopaminergic neurons. The goal of the project is to assess the a...
