Honey Decreased Prostaglandins Level in AIDS Patient

Influence of Natural Honey on Biochemical and Hematological Variables in AIDS: A Case Study
The Scientific World Journal

Abstract: Honey lowers prostaglandins and elevates nitric oxide (NO) in various biological fluids in normal persons. NO and prostaglandin play a role in pathogenesis of AIDS. The study was designed to assess the effect of natural honey on prostaglandins and NO levels, blood indices and biochemical tests in a 40 year-old woman with AIDS. ..

Results showed that prostaglandins level compared with normal subjects were elevated in patient with AIDS. Natural honey decreased prostaglandins levels, and elevated NO-end product, percentage of lymphocytes, platelet count, and serum protein, albumin and copper levels. It might be concluded that natural honey decreased prostaglandins level, elevated NO production and improved hematological and biochemical tests in a patient with a long history of AIDS.
