Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a highly pruritic, chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects up to 25% of children and 10% of adults. Approximately 90% of patients with AD are colonised by Staphylococcus aureus, compared with only 5–30% of non-atopic individuals. Th2 cytokines have a permissive effect on microbial invasion, the epidermal barrier, and cell-mediated immunity, which lowers the production of antimicrobial proteins. Superantigen-producing S. aureus colonisation is correlated with…

Atopic dermatitis

TLDR
Etymology of AD is complex and multifactorial: interaction between genetic susceptibility and environment, but also cutaneous barrier impairment, change in microbiome composition and innate and adaptive immune dysregulation are the main factors involved in the pathogenesis of the disease.

Examining Host and Microbial Determinants of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus Induced Delayed Wound Healing

TLDR
This chapter discusses comparative comparisons of staphyLOCOCCUS AUREUS and PSEUDOMonas AERUGINOSA EXPERIMENTAL INFECTED PORCINE BURN WOUNDS and results suggest that staphylococcus aureus and pseudomonas aeruginosa should be considered as separate entities.

Staphylococcus δ-toxin induces allergic skin disease by activating mast cells

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects 15–30% of children and approximately 5% of adults in industrialized countries. Although the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis is

The presence and impact of biofilm-producing staphylococci in atopic dermatitis.

TLDR
Toll-like receptor 2 was shown to be activated in AD lesional skin (immediately proximal to the sweat ducts), which likely led to the initiation of proteinase-activated receptor 2-mediated pruritus and MyD88-mediated spongiosis.

Severe atopic dermatitis is associated with sensitization to staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB)

TLDR
To determine the relevance of staphylococcal enterotoxins in adult patients with AD, the relationship between the severity of skin lesions and sensitization to SEA and SEB is investigated.

Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Acute and Chronic Skin Lesions of Patients with Atopic Dermatitis

TLDR
The SA colonization rate was higher in AD patients and especially in acute lesions, and had a tendency to increase with age, it is suggested that SA may invade the skin through barrier defects in acute skin lesions, but the colonization in chronic lesions may be orchestrated through many different factors.

Staphlyococcus aureus Phenol-Soluble Modulins Stimulate the Release of Proinflammatory Cytokines from Keratinocytes and Are Required for Induction of Skin Inflammation

TLDR
This work demonstrates the importance of PSM peptides in S. aureus-mediated inflammatory cytokine release from keratinocytes in vitro and in vivo and further implicates PSMs as important contributors to pathogenesis.

A Role of Staphyococcus aureus, Interleukin-18, Nerve Growth Factor and Semaphorin 3A, an Axon Guidance Molecule, in Pathogenesis and Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis

TLDR
It is revealed that Cy-treated mice, to which CD25 +CD4 + reguratory T cells taken from non-treated ones had been transferred, developed the AD-like legions with less severity and less number of SA colonies on the skin surface, and the FX cream is a useful skin-care agent for atopic dry skin colonized by SA.

Fibronectin and fibrinogen contribute to the enhanced binding of Staphylococcus aureus to atopic skin.

TLDR
Data suggest that fibronectin and fibrinogen--but not collagen--play a major role in the enhanced binding of S aureus to the skin of patients with AD.

An Important Role of α-Hemolysin in Extracellular Vesicles on the Development of Atopic Dermatitis Induced by Staphylococcus aureus

Skin barrier disruption and dermal inflammation are key phenotypes of atopic dermatitis (AD). Staphylococcus aureus secretes extracellular vesicles (EVs), which are involved in AD pathogenesis. Here,

Superantigen profile of Staphylococcus aureus isolates from patients with steroid-resistant atopic dermatitis.

TLDR
S. aureus isolates from patients with steroid-resistant atopic dermatitis appear to be selected on the basis of greater production of superantigens, compared with that of isolate from control groups, which may offer selective advantages for colonization of patients.
