Extracts of propolis, a natural beehive product, have been known for centuries to have a variety of beneficial medical properties, among which their anti-inflammatory effect is a major one. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), an active propolis component, has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, carcinostatic and immunomodulatory properties. In this study, we aimed to investigate the efficacy of CAPE in endotoxin-induced lung injury in rats.
