Abstract

Infectious diseases represent an important cause of mortality which motivated the pharmaceutical companies to develop new antimicrobial drugs in recent constant years, especially due to the constant emergence of microorganisms resistant to conventional antimicrobials. Nature has provided many things for humankind over the years, including the tools for the first attempts at therapeutic intervention. Api-products, recognized in traditional and modern medicine as active agents in some biological processes, have been used since ancient times. Their botanical origin is matters of great interest worldwide since the floral source of bee products plays an important role on their biological properties, as it could determine their antimicrobial activities.

Keywords:

Api-products, antimicrobial, beeswax, bee venom, honey, propolis, royal jelly.
