Summary: Background: The study investigated activity of honey towards pathogens when grown in media contained honey, or when honey was added to cultures after inoculation.

Conclusions: Honey prevents growth of the isolates and inhibits their growth when honey was added to growing culture. The therapeutic period of honey and recovery growth of inhibited isolates necessitates adjustment of honey doses according to type of isolate and grade of growth.
