Question: What is so called “bee venom therapy”?
Answer: The cited reference notes: “Bee venom therapy (BVT), in which bee venom is used for medicinal purposes, is available worldwide, but is primarily utilized in Asia, Eastern Europe, and South America. The diverse therapeutic applications of BVT include various musculoskeletal conditions, such as arthritis and rheumatism, chronic recalcitrant neuralgia, arthralgia, and immune-related diseases. BVT is also used to de- sensitize patients to bee stings and thus inhibit allergic reactions. (Park JH et al.
