What result would you predict to see if you were to create an environment in vitro with macrophages, as you mentioned in your future directions?
As vitro means to work in test tubes and not in organisms (which would be a Vivo study), this would be much easier to isolate cells and bacteria and would work much faster than a vivo study. I think that if we were to start testing MGO in a vitro environment, we would see a lot of progress in this study. The more research we do, the more accurate tests we would be able to produce to be able to then go into Clinical Trials.
Theoretically does the MGO produced in manuka honey make manuka honey antibacterial as well?
Yes! MGO is synthesized from Dihydroxyacetone, which is a compound with high correlation to antibacterial properties.
im not sure if im replying twice but im unable to see my previous comment on this page.
To answer your question, yes! The MGO in manuka honey is synthesized from Dihydroxyacetone, which is a compound with high correlation to antibacterial properties.
Posting for Samantha Ridgeway: Why did you choose MGO as your compound to test?
There had been previous tests about Manuka honey and its antibacterial properties with MGO, a heavily prominent component in Manuka honey so we wanted to test to see if this drug helped with antibacterial properties. And it did! Although we need to do more tests to see more results that say the same thing as our tests.
