Abstract
Photodynamic inactivation of microorganisms (PDI) has attracted attention as an alternative treatment for localized infections. Recently, we demonstrated that honey has photodynamic activity; and considered that it will be interesting to evaluate this trend in medical grade honeys such as manuka honey, which is the purpose of this letter.
