Propolis: recent advances in chemistry and plant origin
The plant sources of bee glue are discussed, taking into consideration data based on reliable chemical evidence including comparisons between propolis samples and plant material. Expand
Antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral activity of propolis of different geographic origin.
It seems that propolis has general pharmacological value as a natural mixture and not as a source of new powerful antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral compounds. Expand
Propolis: is there a potential for the development of new drugs?
The potential of propolis for the development of new drugs is discussed by comparing data from the literature that suggest candidate areas for the establishment of drugs against tumors, infections, allergy, diabetes, ulcers and with immunomodulatory action. Expand

The most important trends and developments in recent propolis research are outlined: biological studies performed with chemically characterized samples, bioassay-guided studies of active principles and comparative biological studies of propolis of different origin and chemical composition. Expand
Seasonal effect on Brazilian propolis antibacterial activity.
There was no significant difference with regards to the seasonal effect on the survival curve of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli; after incubation with propolis, there was an efficient antimicrobial action, mainly towards Gram-positive bacteria. Expand
Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry fingerprinting of propolis.
Negative mode ESI-MS fingerprinting method is capable of discerning distinct composition patterns to typify, to screen the sample origin and to reveal characteristic details of the more polar and acidic chemical components of propolis samples from different regions of the world. Expand
Phytochemical Evidence for the Plant Origin of Brazilian Propolis from São Paulo State
Abstract Propolis and plant secretions from three species, most frequently mentioned as botanical sources of the bee glue in Brazil (Baccharis dracunculifolia, Araucaria angustifolia and EucalyptusExpand
Flavonoids and trypanocidal activity of Bulgarian propolis.
The acetone extract, Ket-Bur, was more active than Et-Bur against both forms of T. cruzi, and the ethanol extracts, Et-Lov, showed similar and significant activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans, while being inactive against Escherichia coli. Expand
Propolis produced in Bulgaria and Mongolia : phenolic compounds and plant origin
Les secretions des bourgeons, apres une breve extraction a l'acetone, ont ete analyses en chromatogrphie sur couche mince et chromatographie liquide haute pression. Expand
Antibacterial ent-kaurene from Brazilian propolis of native stingless bees.
Three ent-kaurene diterpenoids, not previously described as constituents of propolis, were isolated from a sample collected by Brazilian native bees Melipona quadrifasciata anthidioides and displayed moderate antibacterial activity. Expand
