Propolis May Be Helpful in Treating Colitis

Effectiveness of Mesalamine and Propolis in Experimental Colitis
Advances In Therapy, Volume 24 No. 5 September/October 2007 Pgs. 1085-1097

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of propolis and mesalamine on experimental colitis in rats…

Most propolis-treated rats had normal histology; mesalamine-treated and propolis+mesalamine–treated rats had inflammatory cell infiltration at rates of 50% and 33%, respectively. The investigators concluded that propolis and mesalamine are efficient independently and in combination, but that their combined effect was not observed to be additive in experimental colitis.
