    Interesting and good to know. I'm presuming that these studies were mostly in vitro rather than in vivo, but I can see a definite application for long term care of ulcerations and other open wounds that would require moist wound management. The honey would have antibiotic effect locally, but would be more effective as a bacteriostat, preventing infection rather than curing, especially where the infection is spreading within the lymphatic or capillary systems. I think an IV injection of honey would have its own unique problems. :)
