  author={Niamh O’Reilly},
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory dermatological condition that has been reported to affect at least 3% of the population in Ireland. [] Key Method Another area of focus was the effect of Bacillus proteins on Neutrophils and Corneal epithelial cells. Neutrophils are known to play a part in the development of inflammation in rosacea. Our studies showed that there was an increase in neutrophil degranulation, migration and cytokine production following exposure to the bacterial antigens. Corneal epithelial…



Staphylococcus epidermidis: a possible role in the pustules of rosacea.

Increased serine protease activity and cathelicidin promotes skin inflammation in rosacea

The role of cathelicidin in skin inflammatory responses is confirmed and an explanation for the pathogenesis of rosacea is suggested by demonstrating that an exacerbated innate immune response can reproduce elements of this disease.

Pathogenic role of Demodex mites in blepharitis

Tea tree oil shows promising potential to treat Demodex blepharitis by reducing DemodEx counts with additional antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory actions.

Demodicosis: a clinicopathological study.

Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis as a cause of chronic marginal blepharitis.

It is thought that pathological changes in the course of demodicosis of the eyelids are consequences of: blockage of follicles and leading out tubules of sebaceous glands by the mites and by reactive hyperkeratinization and epithelial hyperplasia.
