Propolis in Algeria is different in its composition and physical parameter, this fact could be due to the
diversity of the climate and the geographic areas from which propolis is usually harvested. The study
published in 2019 evaluate the pH, the total polyphenols and flavonoids contents in propolis. The
samples were labeled from P1 to P10, collected from different ecosystems in Algeria (Est, West,
Center and South).This study showed that the richest propolis samples of Algeria in total flavonoid
and total polyphenol contents were the ones collected from the southern (P10) and the western
regions (P6 and P8).
In 2020 recent in vitro study showed the antimicrobial susceptibility testing of propolis varieties with
high total polyphenols and flavonoids contents, which were chosen beforehand from an analysis
made of 10 propolis samples. The study revealed that EEAP of LAGHOUAT with high polyphenols
and flavonoids contents exhibits a strong antibacterial activity, and it may be indicated as an
alternative solution for the treatment of staphylococcal osteomyelitis.
On the other side, another in vivo study using a French propolis was published in 2014 regarding the
role of propolis in osteointegration enhancement in allograft autoclaved implanted in femur of dogs.
This study has shown how the propolis accelerates the osteointegration of the allograft covered with
propolis, to follow up that process radiologically until obtaining a total consolidation. The results
showed that the use of a graft covered with propolis enhances and accelerates the osteointegration
