This is seriously good news for those receiving cancer treatment - added protection for kidneys against negative side effects of potent drugs. If you're also in that situation, taking propolis is highly recommended, as it has a protective effect on the liver against toxins, not to mention its immune system supportive activity...  Bee Venom Mitigates Cisplatin-Induced Nephrotoxicity by Regulating CD4(+)CD25(+)Foxp3(+) Regulatory T Cells in Mice Evid BasedComplement Alternat Med , 2013, Vol 2013, Art ID 879845 Cisplatin is used as a potent anticancer drug, but it often causes nephrotoxicity. Bee venom (BV) has been used for the treatment of various inflammatory diseases, and its renoprotective action was shown in NZB/W mice. However, little is known about whether BV has beneficial effects on cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity and how such effects might be mediated. In the present study, the BV-injected group showed a significant increase in the population of Tregs in spleen. Although there was no significant difference in the numbers of Tregs 3 days after cisplatin injection between the BV- and PBS-injected groups, more migration of Tregs into the kidney was observed 6 hours after cisplatin administration in BV group than in PBS group. In addition, BV-injected mice showed reduced levels of serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, renal tissue damage, proinflammatory cytokines, and macrophage infiltration into the kidne...
