Antibiotic, Pesticide, and Microbial Contaminants of Honey: Human Health Hazards
TLDR
The extent and health impact of honey contamination and stresses on the introduction of a strict monitoring system and validation of acceptable minimal concentrations of pollutants or identifying maximum residue limits for bee products, in particular, honey are reviewed. Expand
SOCIO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF BEEKEEPING AND DETERMINANTS OF BOX HIVE TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION IN THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA
TLDR
The study revealed that still 71.1% of the honeybee colonies in the country are kept in traditional hives and the adoption of box hives have been obse rved to be significantly influenced by the beekeeper’s socio-demographic profiles, which show that beekeeping plays a significant role in increasing and diversifying the incomes of rural communities. Expand
Honey: Single food stuff comprises many drugs
TLDR
Physico-chemical properties, traditional use of honey as medicine and mechanism of action of honey in the light of modern scientific medicinal knowledge are reviewed. Expand
Composition and functional properties of propolis (bee glue): A review
TLDR
Propolis is a natural substance collected by honey bees from various plants such as, poplar, palm, pine, conifer secretions, gums, resins, mucilage and leaf buds to be used for sealing cracks and crevices occurring in their hives. Expand
Synergistic Effects of Honey and Propolis toward Drug Multi-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, Escherichia Coli and Candida Albicans Isolates in Single and Polymicrobial Cultures
TLDR
Propolis prevents the growth of the microorganisms in single and mixed microbial cultures, and has synergistic effect when used with honey or ethyl alcohol, which will pave the way to isolate active ingredients from honey and propolis to be further tested individually or in combination against human resistant infections. Expand
In vitro evaluation of the effects of some plant essential oils on Ascosphaera apis, the causative agent of Chalkbrood disease
TLDR
The essential oils tested exhibited significant antimicrobial activities against both strains of A. apis, and they may contain compounds that could play an important role in the treatment or prevention of Chalkbrood disease of honeybee. Expand
Characterization and gene mapping of a chlorophyll-deficient mutant clm1 of Triticum monococcum L.
TLDR
Chlorophyll-deficient mutant (clm1) was identified during manual screening of the ethyl methanesulphonate (EMS)-treated M2 progenies of T. monococcum accession pau14087 in the field and genetic analysis indicated that the clm1 mutation was monogenic recessive. Expand
Role of honey in modern medicine
TLDR
The role of honey in modern medicine is explored and there is convincing evidence in support of its antioxidant and antibacterial nature, cough prevention, fertility and wound healing properties. Expand
Enhanced oral bioavailability of insulin-loaded solid lipid nanoparticles: pharmacokinetic bioavailability of insulin-loaded solid lipid nanoparticles in diabetic rats
TLDR
Insulin-loaded SLNs showed better protection from gastrointestinal environment as evident from the relative bioavailability, which was enhanced five times as compared to the insulin solution, and a significant enhancement of relativeBioavailability of insulin was observed. Expand
Biosurfactant production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa DSVP20 isolated from petroleum hydrocarbon-contaminated soil and its physicochemical characterization
TLDR
The results of this study showed that the P. aeruginosa DSVP20 and/or biosurfactant produced by this isolate have the potential role in bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbon-contaminated soil. Expand
