Background: Geopropolis is a resin collected by native stingless bee, containing soil and wax. Studies concerning their biological activity and chemical composition are scarce. This work evaluated the influence of Ethanolic Extract of Geopropolis (EEGP) from Melipona scutellaris, and its bioactive fraction against important clinical microorganisms as well as their in vitro citotoxity and chemical profile. Methods: The antimicrobial activity was examined by determining the minimal inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
