Author Topic: Looking For Apitherapy Users For A Small Study  (Read 676 times)
« on: August 12, 2006, 12:48:33 PM »

I'm looking for at least a dozen people who sting themselves on a
regular basis to mitigate any of the usual problems that bee stings
seem to help.

I am not try to sell anything here, we are simply expanding the
number of people who have tested formulations we've whipped
up that ease or, for some, eliminate the short-term pain of bee stings.

For those who are hyper-technical, it is an enzyme mix that works
like a limited "anti-venom", neutralizing the Phospholipase A and
some of the Histamine, but not the components of bee venom that
are said to be beneficial (Melittin, Hyaluronidase, Acid phosphatase...)

The goal is to gather feedback on which of several formulations
"works best for you", so what we have here is a double-blind
study, where "which is which" will only be known after the
feedback is "in".

The goal here is to market the product(s) as a "topical analgesic" to
beekeepers, not to apitherapy users.  We just have to nail down
which formulation does the most of the widest sample of people,
so we can decide which to mass-produce.  (We can't touch
apitherapy as a "market", as it smacks too much of "medical"
applications, but we can't stop non-beekeepers from buying or
using the products, now can we?  Smiley
