Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit resulting from androgen-induced increased sebum production, altered keratinisation, inflammation, and bacterial colonisation of hair follicles on the face, neck, chest, and back by Propionibacterium acnes. Although early colonisation with P acnes and family history might have important roles in the disease, exactly what triggers acne and how treatment affects the course of the disease remain unclear. Other factors such as diet… Expand

Nutritional factors associated with acne vulgaris
TLDR
It is hypothesized that milk consumption affects the presence of both reproductive, nonreproductive hormones, and growth factors in the authors' body, which may contribute to increased acne prevalence, and a randomized controlled trial to determine the cause and effects nature of this relationship. Expand
Understanding the role of Propionibacterium acnes in acne vulgaris: The critical importance of skin sampling methodologies.
TLDR
The different sampling strategies that have been adopted for qualitative and quantitative study of Propionibacterium acnes within intact hair follicles of the skin are described and the strengths and weaknesses of such methodologies for investigating the role of P acnes in the development of acne are discussed. Expand
Dapsone in topical niosomes for treatment of acne vulgaris
TLDR
Dapsone niosomes is a promising topical formulation for safe, tolerable and effective drug delivery system with minimal side effects apart from mild erythema and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Expand
Assessment of serum testosterone in females with acne vulgaris in Erbil city
TLDR
The study showed presence of a significant association between serum testosterone level and acne vulgaris in female patients and confirmed the importance of androgens in the pathophysiology of acne. Expand
From pathogenesis of acne vulgaris to anti-acne agents
TLDR
Although these anti-acne agents have various pharmacological effects against the diverse pathogenesis of acne, all of them have a synergistic mode of action, the attenuation of Akt/mTORC1 signaling and enhancement of p53 signal transduction. Expand
Association of Systemic Antibiotic Treatment of Acne With Skin Microbiota Characteristics
TLDR
Systemic antibiotic treatment of acne was associated with changes in the composition and diversity of skin microbiota, with variable rates of recovery across individual patients and parallel changes in specific bacterial populations. Expand
Acne in Patients with Skin of Color: Practical Management
TLDR
Recognizing the clinical and histologic differences, as well as the variations in treatment regimens for darker skin types, will allow for better care and patient satisfaction. Expand
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation vs. progressive macular hypomelanosis and their solutions from natural products
TLDR
Understanding how the chemical constituents and their structures affect melanogenesis, the development of future natural products for pigmentary disorders could be target-specific, making them more effective. Expand
Discrimination of Acne Vulgaris with Human Scalp Hair Tissues Using - FTIR-ATR Spectroscopy
Acne vulgaris is a chronic skin disease which occurs due to inflammation of the hair follicles and sebum-producing (sebaceous) glands of the skin called pilosebaceous unit and the anaerobic propionicExpand
Stemming the tide of antimicrobial resistance: implications for management of acne vulgaris.
TLDR
Topical and oral antibiotics are commonly used to treat acne, but they are not always effective and alternatives are available and there is rising concern about ‘collateral damage to the steady-state microbiome’ of long-term antibiotic use in young people. Expand

Acne inversa
TLDR
TNF-alpha antagonists seem to have a promising influence on the disease, and further studies investigating the effect of these substances on acne inversa are warranted. Expand
Acne: more than skin deep
TLDR
Treatment of acne should be started as early as possible to minimise the risk of scarring and adverse psychological effects, and should be tailored to the individual patient, the type of acne, its severity, the patient’s ability to use the treatment, and the psychological state. Expand
An update on the pathogenesis and management of acne vulgaris.

TLDR
The degree of inflammation seen in acne vulgaris may be dependent upon individual immune responsiveness to P acnes, and leading hypotheses implicate androgen hormones, alterations in follicular linoleic acid levels, and the inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1a (IL1a). Expand
Diet and acne: a review of the evidence
TLDR
Acne may manifest in the form of noninflammatory comedones, superficial inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules, and/or deeper inflammatory lesions(nodules, cysts) and inflammatory lesion formation occurs most commonly when Propionibacterium acnes colonizes the pilosebaceous unit, triggering follicular rupture and a neutrophil cascade. Expand
Therapeutic Considerations for Severe Nodular Acne
TLDR
These treatment modalities have been studied, refined, and combined in novel ways in order to target the multifactorial pathogenesis of the disease, and in this article the authors review each of their roles. Expand
Clinical considerations in the treatment of acne vulgaris and other inflammatory skin disorders: a status report.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that P. acnes-resistant organisms may be associated with therapeutic failure in some patients with acne, and that the prudent use of antibiotics is necessary to ensure that the authors can continue to use these drugs to combat disease effectively. Expand
Descriptive epidemiology of acne vulgaris in the community
TLDR
The prevalence of severe acne has decreased over the past 20 years due to improved treatment, and the general prevalence figure for acne may be confounded by treatment and this factor needs to be accounted for when collecting data. Expand
Spironolactone versus placebo or in combination with steroids for hirsutism and/or acne.
TLDR
There is some evidence to show that spironolactone is an effective treatment to decrease the degree of hirsutism but there was no evidence for effectiveness for the treatment of acne vulgaris. Expand
Synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome and acne fulminans: are they part of the same disease spectrum?
TLDR
The broad spectrum of this syndrome is illustrated with two cases, which encompass the diagnosis of acne fulminans and highlight the inflammatory osteitis, a fundamental component of this condition that is present in both cases. Expand
Topical taurine bromamine, a new candidate in the treatment of moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris: a pilot study.
TLDR
The concept that TauBr can be used as a topical agent in the treatment of acne vulgaris, especially in patients who have already developed antibiotic resistance, is supported. Expand
