Apitherapy, a method of curing illnesses with honeybee products, has been practiced since ancient times. However, within the past few decades, conventional doctors have joined forces with holistic practitioners to explore the "healing power" of bee venom.
More specifically, these medical professionals are attempting to discover the anti-arthritic effect of bee venom for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is a destructive, inflammatory disease affecting the joints through: Pain, Stiffness and Swelling.
Researchers discovered that melittin, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and component of bee venom, might aid in the treatment of RA.
The researchers discovered that melittin, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and component of bee venom effects synovial cells, the cells lining the joints. (The cells tested were obtained from human RA patients.) They found that melittin has the ability to reduce inflammation, much like COX-2 inhibitors, through restraining a DNA binding activity. Based on these findings, researchers came to the conclusion that the key to the anti-arthritic effects of bee venom lies in melittin's ability to deactivate inflammation.
