BVT Used to Treat Multiple Myeloma in Iran

The March 2006 issue of the Journal of the American Apitherapy Society contains a front-page article on the use of bee venom therapy (BVT) to treat a case of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cell.

Dr. Behnam Kaviani-Vahid, a pharmacist in Iran, describes the improvement experienced by a 35-year-old man after being treated with bee stings. In his conclusion, Kaviani-Vahid states:

“We do not claim that the patient is fully recovered from multiple myeloma. However, we note that in 2001 several of Iran’s most eminent oncologists predicted that he would survive for only about six months, and that when he interrupted his bee venom therapy, his blood test results worsened. We therefore conclude that at the very least this therapy has controlled his disease, with minimal side effects.”
