Combination therapy of MTX and EGCG significantly inhibited the development phase of arthritis, which is supported by histopathological, radiographical, and attenuation of overexpression of cartilage cytokines.
EGCG act as potent antioxidant and immunomodulator, suggesting that combined administration of MTX along with EGCG suppressed the development phase of arthritic progression in rats.
MTX and EGCG combination potentiated both the antiarthritic (decrease of hind paw volume) and the antioxidant effect (SOD, GSH, and catalase) as well as suppression of lipid peroxidation.
