Focus has now been shifted towards development of compounds from natural sources that have antimycobacterial activity. The incorporation of such compounds, like polyphenols namely Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) from green tea, as the natural component of tuberculosis treatments has been studied here. Reactive oxygen species and tumor necrosis factor (TNF-?) are the hallmarks of tuberculosis.
