Anti-inflammatory effects of erythromycin and tetracycline on Propionibacterium acnes induced production of chemotactic factors and reactive oxygen species by human neutrophils.


Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), an anaerobic pathogen, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of acne and seems to initiate the inflammatory process by producing neutrophil chemotactic factors (NCF). Once neutrophils attracted by bacterial chemoattractants reach the inflamed site, they release inflammatory mediators such as lysosomal enzymes and… (More)
