This ‘Super drink’ eases kidney damage

Nov 25, 2016

Loaded with antioxidants and nutrient values, green tea has powerful effects on the body.

This 'Healthy-Drink' definitely deserves your attention if you are trying to improve your health or desire to shed extra pounds.

But it has more benefits than you know. A new study conducted by AIIMS researchers has revealed that green tea helps in reducing the kidney toxicity and damage caused by cisplatin, an anti-cancer drug.

The research study has evaluated the usefulness of ECG, a polyphenolic compound which is acquired from green tea and prevents the damage of kidneys induced by the cisplatin. The side effects of cisplatin may include nephrotoxicity and kidney damage.

This study was conducted by AIIMS professor Jagriti Bhatia from the Pharmacology Department and was published in journal 'Laboratory Investigations'.
"If this research progresses, it may lead to a new drug which can combat the ill effects of cisplatin," said Bhatia.

It has been found that approximately 30 per cent of the treated patients develop nephrotoxicity after receiving an initial dose of cisplatin. Cisplatin causes production of free radicals inside cells in kidney, which leads to oxidative stress and inflammation.
