Analysis of distribution patterns of Propionibacterium acnes phylotypes and Peptostreptococcus species from acne lesions.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The precise roles of Propionibacterium acnes and other anaerobic bacteria in the pathogenesis of acne are still unclear. Recent studies have shown that P. acnes can be further classified into several phylotypes with distinct phenotypes and virulence. Their distribution patterns in acne lesions have rarely been demonstrated. OBJECTIVES To… (More)
