null Dihydrofolate reductase inhibition by epigallocatechin gallate compounds

This invention relates to the identification, production and use of Dihydrofolate Reductase (DHFR) inhibitors based on the green tea catechin Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). These inhibitors are, for example, useful in therapy, in particular for the treatment of cancer, infection and inflammatory conditions.
