Beeswax Component Has Anti-Inflammatory, Pain-Killing Effect

Evaluation of Anti-Inflammatory and Antinociceptive Effects of D-002 (Beeswax Alcohols)
J Nat Med, 2011 Jan 22

D-002, a mixture of six higher aliphatic alcohols purified from beeswax, displayed anti-inflammatory effects in carrageenan-induced pleurisy and cotton pellet granuloma in rats.

The aim of the present study was to confirm the anti-inflammatory properties of D-002 and to explore its potential analgesic effects…

This study confirmed the anti-inflammatory effects of D-002 and demonstrated its analgesic effects on the acetic acid-induced writhing, but not on the hot plate response, which suggests that the antinociceptive effects of D-002 could be related to its anti-inflammatory activity.
