Project Title: CAPA Scholarship - Joanna (Qiong) Wu - Masters - Antimicrobial effects of Manuka Honey on Propionbacterium acnes

Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous follicle. The Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) play a key role in inflammation and the formation of comedones. P. acnes has been reported to develop antibiotic resistance, which has generated some interest in developing natural antimicrobial compounds which forms the subject matter of this study. Recently, Manuka honey (leptospermum scoparium) has demonstrated strong antibacterial activities against a wide range of pathogens with distinct non-peroxide activity. Kanuka honey has also shown to be effective against many bacterial species. Many natural bioactives were reported to possess strong antibacterial activities, a few of which were studied against P. acnes. Therefore, the aims of this study were to investigate the antibacterial activity of Manuka honeys and Kanuka honey with and without catalase against the growth of P. acnes alone and to screen the antibacterial activities of five selected nature bioactives alone and in combination with honey against P. acnes in vitro.
