UNLABELLED  Aim. To evaluate the effects of three types of honey (chestnut, blossom, and rhododendron) on the healing of full-thickness wounds. METHODS Twenty-four (24) New Zealand White female rabbits were used. Four 1.5 cm x 1.5 cm full-thickness skin wounds were created on the back of each animal and treated with pure honey or sterile saline, respectively. Wounds were assessed by wound measurements and collection of samples at 7, 14, and 21 days post wounding to evaluate the healing…

Examination the effects of chestnut and Manuka Honey for wound healing on mice experimental model
Objective: In this study, the aim is to examine the effects of Chestnut and Manuka honey on wound healing in order to investigate the effectiveness of cost-effective alternative to current approaches
The data suggest that raw honey had a greater anti-inflammatory effect and shorter healing time in incisional surgical wounds in albino rats, in comparison to standard tetracycline ointment.
Effects of Three Types of Japanese Honey on Full-Thickness Wound in Mice
Investigating the effects of three types of Japanese honey, Acacia, Buckwheat flour, and Chinese milk vetch honey, on wound healing in comparison with hydrocolloid dressing indicates that using Japanese honey alone has limited benefit, but since it reduces wound size in the inflammatory phase, it is possible to apply a combined treatment.
Evaluation of the healing effect of honey and colostrum in treatment of cutaneous wound in rat
Wound healing is a dynamic and complex process of replacing devitalized and missing cellular structures and tissue layers and a combination of honey and colostrum on wounds can enhance healing better than honey and Colostrum separately.
Comparative Efficacy of Acacia Honey and Aloe Vera Gel on Healing of Induced Lacerated Wound in Rabbits
Analysis of the comparative efficacy of Acacia honey and Aloe vera gel on lacerated wound induced in rabbits found wound contraction was found higher in group A and B compared to group C and increased at day 10 and significant tensile strength was recorded in honey treated group.
Effects of Sidr honey on second-intention healing of contaminated full-thickness skin wounds in healthy dogs
The study showed a beneficial effect of Sidr honey on second-intention healing of full thickness contaminated wounds in healthy dogs and the effect was comparable to that of Povidone iodine.
Effect of Rheum emodi and its extracts on wound healing: A qualitative and quantitative histological study
It is suggested that Rhuem emodi and its extracts accelerate the inflammatory reaction and initiate early phase of healing in rabbits and showed better and faster healing than dust treated and control group.
Effect of Manuka honey gel on the transforming growth factor β1 and β3 concentrations, bacterial counts and histomorphology of contaminated full-thickness skin wounds in equine distal limbs.
Treatment with Manuka honey gel resulted in a more organised granulation tissue bed early in wound repair, which may contribute to enhanced healing of equine distal limb wounds.
Review of animal models used to study effects of bee products on wound healing: findings and applications
A comprehensive review of the most recent findings and applications of published experimental and clinical trials using honey as an agent for wound healing enhancement in different animal models is provided.


Influence of Honey on Biochemical and Biophysical Parameters of Wounds in Rats
The influence of honey on biochemical and biophysical parameters of wounds was assessed by making an excision wound by cutting away a 4cm2 (2cm×2cm) full-thickness patch of skin from the shaven back of rats under ether anaesthesia and showed that the time taken by the wounds to heal was less with systemic treatment than with no treatment.
The Effects of Different Types of Honey on Tensile Strength Evaluation of Burn Wound Tissue Healing
The effects of different types of honey on the tensile strength of burn wound tissue healing were evaluated in 105 male Sprague-Dawley rats. The rats were randomly divided into 7 groups of 15 rats
Local application of honey for treatment of neonatal postoperative wound infection
It is concluded that honey is useful in the treatment of post‐surgical wounds that are infected and do not respond to conventional systemic and local antibiotic treatment.

The modified histologic scoring system described here was found to be reliable and reproducible and a transient fibrinous crust forms in the abdomen but not in the vagina 4–7 days after wounding.
Systematic review of the use of honey as a wound dressing
Confidence in a conclusion that honey is a useful treatment for superficial wounds or burns is low, but there is biological plausibility and time for healing was significantly shorter for honey than all these treatments.

Honey, a simple, efficient, cheap and with no side effects treatment deserves being better known and integrated in the set of common antiseptics.
The Effect of Gamma‐irradiation on the Antibacterial Activity of Honey
An investigation was carried out to assess the effect on the antibacterial activity of honey when the honey was subjected to a commercial sterilization procedure using gamma‐irradiation (25 kGy).

The high antibacterial activity of manuka honey was in many cases due entirely to this non‐peroxide component.
