A major part of this has been researching the potential of honey as an antimicrobial agent to inhibit and eradicate bacteria. She will inform us about how honey inhibits bacteria, its ability to improve antibiotic activity, the future use of honey in infection control as well as the possible future directions for this special therapy.
