Synopsis: 
The aim of this study was to investigate whether propolis and caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) prevent radiation-induced cataractogenesis. The results obtained in the study suggest that propolis and CAPE have free radical, scavenging activities in the irradiation-induced cataractogenesis.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: Eye morbidity is widely observed in patients receiving total-body irradiation prior to bone marrow transplantation or radiotherapy for ocular or head and neck cancers. Cataract blindness is the major cause of preventable blindness worldwide especially in the developing countries. The aim of this study was to investigate whether Propolis and Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) prevent radiation-induced cataractogenesis.
