Acne is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the pilose baceous follicles with a multifactorial aetiology. Androgen- induced seborrhoea, follicular hyperkeratinization, and the commensal bacterium Propionibacterium acnes

Abstract

Propionibacterium acnes is often discussed as a contri­ buting pathogenic factor in the aetiology of acne lesions. The aim of this study was to test which porphyrin pat­ terns are synthesized by P. acnes in vivo in untreated acne patients and during standard acne regimens. These photosensitive compounds are potential targets for photo­ dynamic therapy of… (More)
