Honey-based Gel Defeats MRSA and Other Bacterial Infections

Using the time-tested healing power of honey, together with antibacterial ingredients found in honeys derived from the nectars of specific medicinal plants, a medicinal gel called Medihoney is now being sold in the UK and Australia.

Medihoney has demonstrated antibacterial activity against a broad range of dangerous bacteria, including MRSA, VRE and others. U.S. FDA approval is expected to come in 2005. [informative PDF]
