Mouth ulcer gel developed from bee resin

18th November 2010

Researchers from the University of Bradford have created a gel treatment for mouth ulcers that uses a mixture of resin and wax used by honey bees to sterilise their hives.

The healing properties of propolis have been known for years but now the British scientists have found a way of purifying the medicinal mixture so that it will dissolve in water and lose its pungent odour. The technique has already led to the development of a new mouth ulcer gel and opens the door to a huge range of other pharmaceutical products.
