BACKGROUND AND DESIGN Acne vulgaris frequently occurs in the second decade of life. The pathogenesis of the disease is multifactorial and in the present study, we aimed to investigate the role of reactive oxygen species in the inflammation of acne by determining the activities of myeloperoxidase (MPO) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) in polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-three patients with acne vulgaris and 24 healthy controls were enrolled. The severity of the… CONTINUE READING
