How diabetes is linked to gut bacteriaGiven this abundance of nonhuman species living on and within our bodies, it is not surprising that there is a link between specific bacteria to systemic and ocular disease—including diabetes and diabetes-related eye disease.
Tracking infection source after blepharoplasty
Tracking infection source after blepharoplastyInfections after blepharoplasty are uncommon with or without the use of an antibiotic ointment. However, if infections occur, be suspicious of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), said Mark A. Alford, MD.
Research suggests new approaches to treat AD
Research suggests new approaches to treat ADResearch aimed at understanding the host-microbial interface in atopic dermatitis is ongoing but already providing insights for novel therapeutic strategies.
Appreciating the role of microbial communities on the skinMicrobial colonization in the development of inflammatory conditions and immune-mediated conditions is a hot research topic, and new dermatologic therapies can potentially result from greater understanding of the role of microbial communities on the skin and in the gut.
Antibiotic stewardship programs: 4 case studiesAll antibiotic use has the potential to contribute to the development of antibiotic resistance. That’s why it is key to reduce inappropriate antibiotic use in order to slow the growth of resistance.
What ARMOR update means for ocular infectionsTailor antibiotic choices for each patient, as resistance remains high, according to the 2015 Antibiotic Resistance Monitoring in Ocular micRoorganisms (ARMOR) update.
Skin bacteria may fuel cancer cell progressionA new study reveals that toxin-producing bacteria like staphylococcus may fuel CTCL; therefore, antibacterial treatment may slow disease progression. Findings could one day change how you treat patients.
Photoactivation holds promise for keratitis treatment
Photoactivation holds promise for keratitis treatmentThe same photoactivation process used in collagen cross-linking for keratoconus can kill bacteria without the need for the oxygen responsible for the biomechanical effects, potentially pointing toward better treatments for keratitis, according to Olivier Richoz, MD, PhD.
How cutaneous microbiome impacts skin diseaseThe elements, implications, and nuances of the cutaneous microbiome are driving factors in the development, spread, and treatment of skin diseases.
Boy’s papule develops lymphangitic streakA baffled mother brings her 14-year-old son for evaluation of an asymptomatic bump that appeared on the side of his right third finger 1 week ago.
