Theaflavin-3,3'-digallate is a potent AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator with anti-adiposity activity in adipocytes, suggesting its potential application in functional foods and nutraceuticals for obesity management. Theaflavin-3,3'-digallate is also an inducer of oxidative stress and apoptosis, it has strong antioxidant and antiangiogenic activities, it inhibits the tube formation of endothelial cells via decreased both MMP-2 and MMP-9 activities in vitro. A combination microbicide containing theaflavin-3,3'-digallate and lactic acid can reduce herpes simplex virus (HSV) transmission. Theaflavin-3,3'-digallate may exert its anti-inflammatory and cancer chemopreventive actions by suppressing the activation of NFkappaB through inhibition of IkappaB kinase (IKK) activity. Theaflavin-3,3'-digallate can repress osteoclastogenesis and prevent wear debris-induced osteolysis via suppression of ERK pathway, it is a promising candidate for the treatment of osteoclast-related osteolytic diseases, such as wear debris-induced peri-implant osteolysis (PIO).
