Iranian researchers produce drugs for skin ulcers, sinusitis from propolis

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian researchers at a science park in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province, western Iran, have produced 12 types of drugs for treating skin ulcers, sinusitis and infectious rash using propolis.

Davoud Moniri, the Managing Director of the company which have designed the drugs, said propolis is similar to honey wax which becomes crisp and fragile in cold weather and soft and sticky when it is hot.

It is a disinfectant material which prevents disease outbreak inside beehives.

Propolis is found in the entry of the beehive and disinfects bees before they get into.

The newly-produced drugs are used for recovering skin ulcers, sinusitis, infectious rash and cold.
