BACKGROUND The inflammation in acne vulgaris is widely thought to be induced by an immunological reaction, but the role of Propionibacterium acnes is unclear. OBJECTIVES To examine the local host response mechanism of a keratinocyte cell line 3 h and 6 h after stimulation with viable and heat-killed P. acnes. METHODS The quantitative expression of cytokines was measured at the mRNA level by real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. RESULTS The coincubation of a… CONTINUE READING
