Il miele medicale nella pratica clinica: la nostra esperienza in 75 casi trattati
Presso la Struttura Organizzativa Dipartimentale (S.O.D.) Clinica di Chirurgia Plastica e Ricostruttiva di Ancona sono stati trattati con miele medicale consecutivamente, nell’arco di 24 mesi, 75 pazienti affetti da lesioni cutanee croniche. Nell’articolo vengono descritti gli ottimi risultati ottenuti in termini di riduzione dei tempi di guarigione delle lesioni trattate, e vengono descritte le caratteristiche chimiche e fisiche del miele medicale che ne spiegano in forma scientifica l’azione.
