  • Staphylococcus epidermidis: A Potential New Player in the Physiopathology of Acne? [Review]
  • DDermatology 2019 May 21; :1-8
  • Claudel JP, Auffret N, … Dréno B
  • CONCLUSIONS: This review provides an overview of current knowledge of the potential role of S. epidermidis in the physiopathology of acne. Recent research indicates that acne might be the result of an unbalanced equilibrium between C. acnes and S. epidermidis,according to dedicated interactions. Current treatments act on C. acnesonly. Other treatment options may be considered, such as probiotics derived from S. epidermidis to restore the naturally balanced microbiota or through targeting the regulation of the host's AMP mediators. Key Messages: Research seems to confirm the beneficial role of S. epidermidis in acne by limiting C. acnes over-colonisation and inflammation.
