About This Project

Since settlers brought honeybees to New Zealand, inhabitants have utilized honey produced from the native Manuka tree as an antiseptic to treat gastrointestinal and wound infections. Today, deadly infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria are becoming a major health concern. Manuka Honey alone is known to kill bacteria. We plan to test Manuka Honey and a specific compound in it, MGO, alongside existing drugs to attempt to restore sensitivity to those drugs to combat the issue of resistance.
