The anaerobic organisms of dental origin are commonly implicated in oral diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis. Typically, periodontal patients are treated with antibiotics, including metronidazole, clindamycin or ciprofloxacin, for both prophylactic and therapeutic purposes. However, the use of these drugs is associated with issues of development of antibiotic resistance, as well as toxicity and other side effects. We tested jarrah, lucerne & blueweed, Medihoney and manuka honeys in our studies, and also included artificial honey as a control, in order to determine if the osmotic properties of the honey were significantly involved in the antibacterial activity.

Aeruginosa pathogenesis in cystic fibrosis) is also well recognised. Biofilms may also serve as a reservoir for chronic or persistent infections. We used lucerne & blueweed and manuka honeys to test the effect of honey on biofilms produced by P. aeruginosa, methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), and coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CNS). We found that: ƒ honey is an effective agent for the prevention of biofilm formation by P. aeruginosa and Staphylococcus spp. in vitro; ƒ both floral honeys significantly reduced biofilm formation at concentrations well below their minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs), suggesting that there is more to biofilm prevention than just the killing of planktonic cells; ƒ much higher concentrations of artificial honey than floral honey were required to reduce biofilm growth; ƒ addition of catalase to the floral honeys resulted in a significant decrease in the inhibitory action of lucerne & blueweed honey; ƒ sub-inhibitory concentrations of honey, but not antibiotics, prevented biofilm formation by P.
