Propolis Extract Reduces Proliferation of Parasites

In Vitro Antileishmanial Activity of Adana Propolis Samples on Leishmania Tropica: a Preliminary Study
Parasitology Research, 2008 Feb 10

Propolis (bee glue) is a natural resinous hive product, collected from various plant sources. It has attracted much attention as a useful substance applied in medicine due to its pharmacological activities.

It was aimed to investigate the in vitro effects of an ethanolic extract of Adana propolis samples on the growth of Leishmania tropica

Our results demonstrate that ethanolic extracts of Adana propolis samples reduce the proliferation of L. tropica parasites significantly.
