Exerpt:
Theophylline or caffeine treatment markedly reduced hydroxyproline content,
a measure of lung invasion of tumor cells, the authors report, while
theobromine had no significant effect.
Similarly, transglutaminase activity - a differentiation marker - was
significantly higher in theophylline- and caffeine-treated mice, compared
with control animals, the report indicates. Theobromine was again without
effect.
