‘Apimedica and Apiquality 2008’ to be Held June 9-12 in Rome

Rome, 10th January 2008

Dear Colleagues,

Apimondia, the Italian Beekeepers’ Federation and the Honey Research Centre of the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” are pleased to invite you to the 2nd International Forum on Apitherapy “APIMEDICA and APIQUALITY 2008” in Villa Mondragone Congress Centre, Rome, Italy, from 9 to 12 June 2008.

The Forum aims at highlighting the health benefits of bee products by demonstrating their properties, the minimum number of bioactive compounds having a pharmacological activity, the reproducibility of their effect in the various diseases and the mechanism of action at biological level. Moreover, quality bee products should be residue-free.

In the first International Forum Apimedica 2006 several considerations were made on the relationship between apitherapy and official medicine and how they could complement each other rather than be rivals.

The “Apimedica and Apiquality” Forum falls in line with the focus that Apimondia has been pursuing in recent years and aims at the development and improvement of quality standards on apitherapy and bee products for the benefit of both beekeepers and the public at large. We also hope that you will participate in the Forum by applying your research activities on the topics of Apitherapy and Apiquality.

We would also highly appreciate it if you could inform your colleagues about the Forum with all the relevant details that are present on the websites and

Yours sincerely,

The Apimedica & Apiquality 2008 Forum Organising Committee
