Skin microbiota diversity among genetically unrelated individuals of Indian origin

This work provides one of the first characterizations of skin microbiota variation in different sub-populations in India, and quantifies the level of individuality, as contrasted to the other factors of age, geography, and diet, thus helping to evaluate the applicability of skin microbiome profiles as a potential biomarker to stratify individuals.

The skin microbiome of elasmobranchs follows phylosymbiosis, but in teleost fishes, the microbiomes converge

The comparison of the microbiomes among fishes represents an investigation into the microbial relationships of the oldest divergence of extant vertebrate hosts and reveals that microbial relationships are not consistent across evolutionary timescales.

Wolves, dogs and humans in regular contact can mutually impact each other’s skin microbiota

The results suggest that domestication may have an impact on the diversity of the skin microbiota, and that the canine skin microbiota can be shared with humans, depending on the level of interaction.

SKIOME Project: a curated collection of skin microbiome datasets enriched with study-related metadata

This work collected, integrated and organized existing microbiome data resources from human skin 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing experiments, generated a comprehensive collection of datasets, enriched in metadata, and created a data retrieval and curation framework built on three different stages to maximize the retrieval of datasets and metadata associated with them.

The Epibiotic Microbiota of Wild Caribbean Sea Urchin Spines Is Species Specific

It is confirmed that the epibiotic microbiota is species-specific, but also niche-dependent, revealing the trophic networks emerging from the organic matter being recycled in the seagrass and reef niches.

Bioactive Compounds for Skin Health: A Review

The aim of the study was to review the literature on the effects of bioactive substances on skin parameters such as elasticity, firmness, wrinkles, senile dryness, hydration and color, and to define their role in the process of skin ageing.

The skin microbiome of vertebrates

Studies that have leveraged high-throughput sequencing to better understand the skin microorganisms that associate with members of classes within the subphylum Vertebrata are summarized and links between the skin microbiome and vertebrate characteristics are explored.

From a practical point of view, it will be useful for the dermatologist to keep some dietary information handy to deal with the occasional patient who does not seem to respond in spite of the best, scientific and evidence-based therapy.

Nutritional skin care: health effects of micronutrients and fatty acids.

It was concluded that nutritional factors exert promising actions on the skin, but information on the effects of low-to-moderate doses of nutrients consumed long term by healthy individuals is obviously lacking, as are data on direct effects on basal skin properties, including hydration, sebum production, and elasticity.

The active form of vitamin D, 1,25‐dihydroxyvitamin D3, exhibits antiproliferative and immunoregulatory effects via the vitamin D receptor, and thus is successfully used in the topical treatment of psoriasis.

Human skin condition and its associations with nutrient concentrations in serum and diet.

Several associations between nutrients in serum and diet and skin condition were observed, indicating that changes in baseline nutritional status may affect skin condition.

Nutritional factors and hair loss

Serum ferritin concentrations provide a good assessment of an individual's iron status and the role of the essential amino acid, l‐lysine in hair loss also appears to be important and there is no evidence to support the popular view that low serum zinc concentrations cause hair loss.

Nutrition and skin

The intention of this review is to provide the most relevant and the most well-documented information on the role of nutrition in common skin conditions and its impact on skin biology.

Dietary nutrient intakes and skin-aging appearance among middle-aged American women.

Higher intakes of vitamin C and linoleic acid and lower intakes of fats and carbohydrates are associated with better skin-aging appearance, and promoting healthy dietary behaviors may have additional benefit for skin appearance in addition to other health outcomes in the population.

Recent developments in diet and gout

Until confirmed by a large, controlled study, it is prudent to advise patients to consume meat, seafood and alcoholic beverages in moderation, with special attention to food portion size and content of non-complex carbohydrates which are essential for weight loss and improved insulin sensitivity.

Medical nutrition therapy as a potential complementary treatment for psoriasis--five case reports.

A dietary regimen based on Edgar Cayce's readings may be an effective medical nutrition therapy for the complementary treatment of psoriasis; however, further research is warranted to confirm these results.
