Abstract: Acne is a complex, chronic and common skin disorder of pilosebaceous units. Although it is known that exacerbation of acne results from emotional stress, the nature of the association between stress and acne remains unclear. This is due in part to the lack of substantial evidence regarding the participation of cutaneous neurogenic factors in the pathogenesis of acne. To examine the possible involvement of neurogenic factors in the etiology of acne, we used immunohistochemistry to… Expand
New Aspects in Acne Inflammation
TLDR
Findings suggest that SP may stimulate lipogenesis of the sebaceous glands which may be followed by proliferation of Propionibacterium acnes, and may yield a potent influence on the seBaceous glands by provocation of inflammatory reactions via mast cells. Expand
Influence of substance-P on cultured sebocytes
TLDR
This study reveals that SP is involved in the pathogenesis of acne. Expand
The role of neuropeptides in the multifactorial pathogenesis of acne vulgaris
TLDR
Immunohistochemistry data suggest that NP, such as the complete CRH system and MC-1R, are involved in the pathogenesis of acne. Expand
Morphometry of pilosebaceous unit and immunohistochemical expression of substance P and neurokinin-1 receptor in acne vulgaris
TLDR
SP and its receptor NK-1R seem to be important in the regulation of sebaceous gland function and provide a new insight into the involvement of the cutaneous nervous system in the pathogenesis of acne. Expand
Beyond acne: Current aspects of sebaceous gland biology and function
TLDR
How sebaceous gland research may stimulate the development of novel therapeutic strategies targeting specific molecular pathways of the pathogenesis of skin diseases is discussed. Expand
New developments in our understanding of acne pathogenesis and treatment
TLDR
A summarized update of the current knowledge of the pathobiology of acne vulgaris and new treatment concepts that have emerged in the last 3 years is provided. Expand
Increased in situ expression of melanocortin‐1 receptor in sebaceous glands of lesional skin of patients with acne vulgaris
TLDR
Investigation by immunohistochemistry suggests that melanocortin‐1 receptor is involved in the pathogenesis of acne, and Sebocytes and keratinocytes of the ductus seboglandularis of acne‐involved and non‐involved skin showed very intense melanoc Cortin‐ 1 receptor expression in contrast to less intense scattered immunoreactivity in normal skin samples.

TLDR
Th Thiboutot and colleagues have shown that all enzymes required for utilizing cholesterol as a substrate for steroidogenesis are present in human sebocytes with P450 side chain cleavage enzyme, adrenodoxin reductase, and P450c17. Expand
Frontiers in sebaceous gland biology and pathology
Abstract:  The development of experimental models for the in vitro study of human sebaceous gland turned down the theory of a phylogenetic relict and led to the identification of several, unknown orExpand

TLDR
The major role of inflammation in acne development is confirmed based on published molecular data sets and new therapeutic efforts on anti‐inflammatory/immunologically active concepts, which are able to regulate sebaceous lipogenesis. Expand

The Pilosebaceous Unit Is Part of the Skin Immune System
TLDR
The successful cultivation of sebocytes will provide a model by which the effect of these mediators can be studied in detail in order to shed light onto the various pathophysiological conditions of seBaceous glands. Expand
Neutral endopeptidase expression and distribution in human skin and wounds.
TLDR
This is the first evidence that keratinocytes produce neutral endopeptidase, which may terminate the proinflammatory and mitogenic actions of neuropeptides in normal skin and wounds. Expand
Endothelin and neutral endopeptidase in the endometrium of women with menorrhagia.
TLDR
In menorrhagia, stromal endothelin immunoreactivity was not different from the normal cycle and although neutral endopeptidase immunostaining in stroma was similar to the secretory phase of normal endometrium, cyclical variation was absent. Expand
What is the pathogenesis of acne?
TLDR
This work concludes that acne vulgaris lesions develop when (supposedly largely androgen-mediated) increased sebum production, ductal hypercornification, and propionibacteria come together with local inflammatory process in the unlucky affected individual. Expand
Modulation of neurogenic inflammation by neutral endopeptidase.
TLDR
It is suggested that decreased NEP activity will result in exaggerated neurogenic inflammation and may play an important role in inflammatory diseases in airways and drugs that cause up-regulation of NEP may play a therapeutic role by suppressing neurogenic responses. Expand
Immunological localization of neuropeptide-degrading enzymes in the nasal mucosa.
TLDR
Results show that NEP secretion is regulated by a glandular, cholinergic control and ACE and CPN secretion are regulated by vascular permeability. Expand

TLDR
The distribution and localization of several neuropeptides were investigated in the lichenified lesions of 11 patients with atopic dermatitis using indirect immunofluorescence, suggesting a possible involvement of some neuropePTides in the pathomechanisms of atopy dermatitis. Expand

TLDR
The enzyme neutral endopeptidase is bound to the membranes of selected cells in the airways that have receptors for tachykinins, and it modulates smooth muscle contraction, gland secretion, cough, vascular permeability, and neutrophil adhesion. Expand
Substance P is diminished and vasoactive intestinal peptide is augmented in psoriatic lesions and these peptides exert disparate effects on the proliferation of cultured human keratinocytes.
TLDR
The imbalance of cutaneous VIP and SP and their disparate effects on the proliferation of normal human keratinocytes in culture would suggest that these peptides are involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis and may exert different modulatory activities in the mechanisms underlying the psoriatic lesion.

TLDR
NEP, therefore, is a signal transduction and possibly a growth modulator for both SCLC and NSCLC, emphasizing the role of neuropeptides in the pathogenesis of the major histological forms of lung cancer. Expand
