Substance from Australian bees could be used to relieve arthritis, heal wounds faster
from ABC Rural
A substance produced by Australian stingless bees could change the way wounds are treated, according to new research at a Queensland university. University of the Sunshine Coast biomedical science Ph.D. student Karina Hamilton has been studying a cerumen (wax-like secretion from the auditory canal) produced by the bees for three years. She has made a breakthrough in her research with the discovery of four chemical compounds which could help with arthritis, inflammation and skin wounds.
