Skin microbiome: More fragile, less diverse in urban areasThe decrease in the diversity of skin microbiome in megacities may contribute to a higher incidence of skin diseases in more urbanized environments, researchers report.
The effect of antibacterials on the skinThe microbiome is one of the most popular areas of skin research at present. Many dermatologic diseases are accompanied by abnormal microbiomes beginning with atopic dermatitis, says Dr. Zoe Diana Draelos in her monthly column, Cosmetic Conundrums.
Topical antibiotics and antiseptics disrupt the skin microbiomeDelayed diagnosis of PsA can lead to poor outcomes. Access to care elusive to some patients due to doctor shortage. Models of care that triage patients may shorten diagnostic delays
Knowledge of skin microbiome provides insights into dermatological conditionsDirect sequencing data, together with culture data, supplies researchers with information about communities of bacteria and fungi on the skin.
Differences in microbiome observed in patients with psoriasisKnowledge of the microbiome is shedding light on the development of chronic skin conditions like psoriasis, and greater insights into the role of the microbiome may yield new therapies for psoriasis.
Staphylococcus aureus infections in atopic dermatitisStaphylococcus aureus plays an important role in the pathogenesis and course of atopic dermatitis. Compared to the normal pediatric population, atopic patients are especially susceptible to colonization and recurrent infections of S aureus.
