We examined the antibacterial activities of several types of propolis, including Africanized honey bee green propolis and propolis produced by meliponini bees. The antibacterial activity of green propolis against Micrococcus luteus and Staphylococcus aureus was superior to that of Melipona quadrifasciata and Scaptotrigona sp propolis. Only two samples of propolis (green propolis and Scaptotrigona sp propolis) were efficient against Escherichia coli. Melipona quadrifasciata propolis was better than green propolis and Scaptotrigona sp propolis against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We concluded that these resins have potential for human and veterinary medicine.; Coordenacao de Aperfeicoamento de Pessoal de Nivel Superior (CAPES); CNPq; FAEPA; FAPESP

O presente trabalho teve por objetivo estudar a atividade antifúngica e antibacteriana de diferentes tipos de própolis, tanto de abelhas africanizadas (verde) quanto meliponíneos. A concentração inibitória mínima, sendo a menor concentração de um agente inibidor em que não se observa o crescimento macroscópico do microorganismo, foi determinada para todas as amostras de própolis. Para análise do perfil químico das amostras foi utilizada como metodologia (CLAE), visando determinar as classes de substâncias presentes nas amostras de própolis. Em todos os microorganismos testados as própolis das abelhas Tetragonisca angustula, Plebeia droryana, Scaptotrigona bipunctata, Friesiomelitta varia e Nannotrigona testaceicornis não apresentaram atividade antifúngica nem antibacteriana. Nenhuma das amostras de própolis testadas apresentou atividade antifúngica frente ao Aspergillus nidulans. A linhagem do fungo Trichophyton rubrum mostrou-se sensível a alguns tipos de própolis sendo que a própolis verde foi mais eficaz. Alguns tipos de própolis apresentaram atividade antibacteriana, indicando a importância dessas resinas na terapêutica humana e veterinária.; Our objective was to examine the antifungal and antibacterial activities of several types of propolis...

Nós avaliamos a atividade antimicrobiana do mel coletado de ninhos de 12 espécies de abelhas nativas sem ferrão comumente encontrados no Brasil e 25 amostras de mel de Apis mellifera não pasteurizados que foram identificadas como sendo unifloral e uma amostra de mel multifloral. A atividade antimicrobiana de cada amostra de mel foi testada contra cinco espécies de bactérias patogênicas, uma espécie de fungo patogênico e uma espécie de levedura patogênica, comparando esta atividade com o mel terapêutico de manuka produzido por abelhas Apis mellifera na Nova Zelândia a partir do néctar de Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae). Cinco das treze amostras de mel das abelhas sem ferrão foram bactericidas e oito foram fungicidas contra o fungo patogênico Trichophyton rubrum. Somente a levedura Candida albicans foi resistente a todas as amostras de mel. As amostras de mel de Apis mellifera que apresentaram atividade bactericida foram caju, romã e cana, nenhuma das amostras de mel de A. mellifera afetou o fungo T. rubrum. Os meis de Nannotrigona testaceicornis, Plebeia remota, Tetragona clavipes e Scaptotrigona depilis todos com alto nível de atividade antimicrobiana, foram significativamente mais eficiente em termos de atividade antimicrobiana que o mel de manuka...

This study aimed to investigate the practice of apitherapy - using bee products such as honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly and bee venom to prevent or treat illness and promote healing - among German beekeepers and to evaluate their experiences with these therapies. A questionnaire incorporating two instruments on beekeepers’ physical and mental health and working practice was included in three German beekeeping journals and readers were asked to complete it. The instrument included questions on the use of apitherapy. Simple descriptive methods, bivariate correlation, cross-tabulation and one-way ANOVA were used to analyze the data. Altogether 1059 completed questionnaires were received. The beekeepers reported the most effective and favorable therapeutic effects with honey, followed by propolis, pollen and royal jelly. The factors associated with successful experiences were: age, number of hives tended, health consciousness, positive experiences with one product and self-administration of treatment. Beekeepers were asked for which condition they would employ propolis and pollen. They reported that they used propolis most frequently to treat colds, wounds and burns, sore throats, gum disorders and also as a general prophylactic...

The use of bee venom as a therapeutic agent for the relief of joint pains dates back to Hippocrates, and references to the treatment can be found in ancient Egyptian and Greek medical writings as well. Also known as apitherapy, the technique is widely used in Eastern Europe, Asia, and South America. The beneficial effects of bee stings can be attributed to mellitinin, an anti-inflammatory agent, known to be hundred times stronger than cortisone. Unfortunately, certain substances in the bee venom trigger allergic reactions which can be life threatening in a sensitized individual. Multiple stings are known to cause hemolysis, kidney injury, hepatotoxicity and myocardial infarction. The toxicity can be immediate or can manifest itself only weeks after the exposure. We describe hepatotoxicity in a 35-year-old female, following bee sting therapy for multiple sclerosis. She presented to our clinic 3 wk after therapy with a history of progressive jaundice. The patient subsequently improved, and has been attending our clinic now for the last 9 mo.

Bee pollen has been used as an apitherapy agent for several centuries to treat burns, wounds, gastrointestinal disorders, and various other diseases. The aim of our study was to investigate the hepatoprotective effects of chestnut bee pollen against carbon tetrachloride (CCI4)-induced liver damage. Total phenolic content, flavonoid, ferric reducing/antioxidant power, and DPPH radical activity measurements were used as antioxidant capacity determinants of the pollen. The study was conducted in rats as seven groups. Two different concentrations of chestnut bee pollens (200 and 400 mg/kg/day) were given orally and one group was administered with silibinin (50 mg/kg/day, i.p.) for seven days to the rats following the CCI4 treatment. The protective effect of the bee pollen was monitored by aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (AST) activities, histopathological imaging, and antioxidant parameters from the blood and liver samples of the rats. The results were compared with the silibinin-treated and untreated groups. We detected that CCI4 treatment induced liver damage and both the bee pollen and silibinin-treated groups reversed the damage; however, silibinin caused significant weight loss and mortality due, severe diarrhea in the rats. The chestnut pollen had showed 28.87 mg GAE/g DW of total phenolic substance...

The healing process of injured bones of mandible in normal conditions and at the applications of some materials accelerating the regenerative process (extract of bone and Royal Jelly) bas been studied in rabbits (Chinchilla). The regenerative process bas been evaluated by histological and histochemical methods, by quantitative cytological methods (cytograms, mitotical and differentiation index, changes in vacuolar system of osteoblasts, volumen changes of nuclei and of cytoplasms) and by cytochemical methods (determination of DNA, RNA and AMPS in vitro and of the bone salts in vivo). Our results indicated that the followed materials, especially the Royal Jelly, significantly accelerated the regeneratiue process. The favorable influence of Royal Jelly upon the regeneration is depending of its activity on differentiation and synthetical processes of osteoblasts.

Traditional medicine therapies are historically used worldwide for disease prevention and treatment purposes. Apitherapy is part of the traditional medicine based on bee product use. Complementary medicine practices which incorporate use of some traditional herbal, mineral, or animal kind substances very often are discussed with pharmacy professionals because these products are often sold in pharmacies as dietary supplements. This study is aimed at determining the attitude, knowledge, and practices of apitherapy among undergraduated pharmacy students (Master of Pharmacy) who already have a pharmacy technician diploma and from 1 to 20 years of practice working in a community pharmacy as pharmacy assistants. A method of questionnaire was chosen. The questions about attitudes, experience, knowledge, and practices for disease prevention and treatment of different bee products, their safety, and informational sources were included. Respondents shared opinion that use of bee product is part of the traditional medicine. Most of them had experience on honey product use for treatment and disease prevention for themselves and their family members (62%) although the need of more evidence based information was expressed. The most known bee products were honey...
