Complications arising from cutaneous and soft tissue infections with Staphylococcus aureus are a major clinical problem owing to the high incidence of these infections and the widespread emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains. If prophylactic vaccines or immunotherapy for certain patient populations are to be developed as an alternative to antibiotics, it will be essential to better understand the immune mechanisms that provide protection against S. aureus skin infections. Recent… Expand
Role of cytokines in host defense against Staphylococcus aureus skin infection.
TLDR
Recent discoveries regarding the role of cytokines-mediated responses in host defense against S. aureus skin infection are summarized, and their implications for future immunotherapy and vaccine development are discussed. Expand
Immunity to Staphylococcus aureus: Implications for Vaccine Development.
TLDR
While changing intrinsic T cell responses may be therapeutically difficult, monoclonal antibodies against superantigens may have utility in addressing dysfunctional immune responses to S. aureus. Expand
The Role of Staphylococcus aureus Virulence Factors in Skin Infection and Their Potential as Vaccine Antigens
TLDR
Potential candidate antigens for vaccines targeted at protection against S. aureus SSTIs are highlighted and it is important to ascertain if distinct immune mechanisms are required to confer protection at distinct anatomical sites. Expand
Immune and Inflammatory Reponses to Staphylococcus aureus Skin Infections
TLDR
These cutaneous immune mechanisms could provide new targets for future vaccines and immune-based therapies to combat skin infections and cutaneous inflammation caused by S. aureus. Expand
Innate and adaptive immune responses against Staphylococcus aureus skin infections
TLDR
The innate immune responses against S. aureus skin infections are summarized, including antimicrobial peptides that have direct antimicrobial activity against S., as well as pattern recognition receptors and proinflammatory cytokines that promote neutrophil abscess formation in the skin, which is required for bacterial clearance.

Mechanisms of NDV-3 vaccine efficacy in MRSA skin versus invasive infection
TLDR
It is demonstrated that NDV-3 protective efficacy against MRSA in SSSI involves a robust and complementary response integrating innate and adaptive immune mechanisms. Expand
Innate Immunity to Staphylococcus aureus: Evolving Paradigms in Soft Tissue and Invasive Infections
TLDR
The innate immune responses to S. aureus during infection of skin and bone are reviewed, which serve as paradigms for soft tissue and bone disease, respectively. Expand
Development of a vaccine against Staphylococcus aureus invasive infections: Evidence based on human immunity, genetics and bacterial evasion mechanisms
TLDR
The evidence presented form the basis for a hypothesis that staphylococcal toxins are important virulence factors, and targeting the neutralization of these toxins are more likely to provide a therapeutic benefit in contrast to prior vaccine attempts to generate antibodies to facilitate opsonophagocytosis.

Staphylococcus aureus causes a wide range of diseases that together embody a significant public health burden. Aided by metabolic flexibility and a large virulence repertoire, S. aureus has theExpand
Is there a future for a Staphylococcus aureus vaccine?
TLDR

TLDR
Staphylococci are the most abundant skin-colonizing bacteria and the most important causes of nosocomial infections and community-associated skin infections, and AMPs likely play a central role in providing immunity to bacterial colonization on human epithelia. Expand

A large human study where the presence of genes encoding Panton-Valentine leukocidin toxin in community-associated MRSA did not correlate with complicated skin structure infections is examined, opposing the widespread notion that PVL is the primary CA-MRSA virulence factor. Expand

TLDR
Staphylococcus aureus can cause superficial skin infections and, occasionally, deep-seated infections that entail spread through the blood stream, and must rely primarily on cell-surface polymers and the ability to form a biolfilm to survive in the host. Expand
Role of Neutrophil Leukocytes in Cutaneous Infection Caused by Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
The finding of severe ulcerations in neutropenic mice correlated with a significantly higher burden of bacteria in the blood and skin during the early phase of the infection, which point to a crucial protective role of granulocytes in S. aureus dermatitis. Expand
Contribution of Coagulases towards Staphylococcus aureus Disease and Protective Immunity
TLDR
It is reported here that Coa and vWbp together are required for the formation of abscesses, suggesting that coagulases function as protective antigens for a staphylococcal vaccine. Expand

TLDR
Immunization of mice with SpAKKAA raised antibodies that blocked the virulence of staphylococci, promoted opsonophagocytic clearance, and protected mice against challenge with highly virulent MRSA strains, and enabled MRSA-challenged mice to mount antibody responses to many different stAPHylococcal antigens.
