Propionibacterium acnes is a well-known commensal of the human skin connected to acne vulgaris and joint infections. It is extensively studied in planktonic cultures in the laboratory settings but occurs naturally in biofilms.
Recent Literature On Treatment Approaches, Advances and Guidelines for the Acne Cure
Propionibacterium acnes is implicated in the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris, which impacts >85% of teenagers. Novel therapies are in high demand and an ethnopharmacological approach to discovering new plant sources of anti-acne therapeutics could contribute to filling this void in effective therapies.
Doxycycline, metronidazole and isotretinoin: Do they modify microRNA/mRNA expression profiles and function in murine T-cells?
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may develop due to an inflammatory response to commensal gut microbiota triggered by environmental factors in a genetically susceptible host. Isotretinoin (acne therapy) has been inconsistently associated with IBD onset and flares but prior treatment with antibiotics, also associated with IBD development, complicates the confirmation of this association.
Efficacy and local tolerability of different spray products in the treatment of mild to moderate acne of the back and chest. A controlled, 3-arm, assessor-blinded prospective trial
A spray formulation containing 2 vitamin-A derivatives (hydroxypinacolone retinoate and retinol) carried in glycospheres (RetinSphere®) combined with an antimicrobial peptide (BIOPEP-15), salicylic acid and vitamin E (BR) has been recently developed for the treatment of truncal acne.
The reasons for the appearance of acne in adulthood are largely unknown. We explored the role of personal and environmental factors in adult female acne.
Leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on the top acne scar treatments. See what they’re recommending to their patients and why. To improve patient care and outcomes, leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on acne scar treatments.
Adherence to acne medication is poor and is a major reason why treatment plans are ineffective. Recognizing solutions to nonadherence is critical. The purpose of this study is to describe the hurdles associated with acne nonadherence and to provide mechanisms on how to ameliorate them.
In this issue of Experimental Dermatology, Dr. Melnik presents the hypothesis that acne is caused by inappropriate survival of cells in the sebaceous duct and gland.
Recent progress in the research about Propionibacterium acnes strain diversity and acne: pathogen or bystander?
Recent progress has steadily reported the existence of the diverse strains of Propionibacterium acnes, and these studies have contributed to the elucidation of their contradictory roles between normal commensals and pathogens. In this review, the authors aimed to provide an update on the recent understanding of research about P. acnes strain diversity and acne, analyzing the potential implications for clinical applications.
Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease whose psychosocial effects can greatly impair quality of life. Various scales are used to classify the severity of acne, and several treatment algorithms are currently applied: no consensus on a common scale or treatment guidelines has been reached. A group of Spanish experts therefore met to identify a scale the majority could accept as the most appropriate for classifying severity and treating accordingly.
