HoneyLab has proved that its kanuka honey formulation Honevo is just as effective as the pharmaceutical alternative in treating cold sores.

Callaghan Innovation played an integral role in helping this business undertake R&D and the agency’s co-funding of the cold sore study meant HoneyLab could accelerate the work and do other research programmes as well.
