Analysis of the Microbiome in Rosacea

2019-10-04 08:31:42 | BioPortfolio


The skin and gut microbiome of rosacea patients differs from individuals without rosacea and that the microbiome suffers from unique derangements in rosacea patients following antibiotic therapy.

This study was proposed to examine microbial signatures of the skin and gut microbiome in patients with moderate to severe rosacea and to identify differences between microbe communities in patients with rosacea and volunteers without rosacea using 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification, sequencing and computational phylogenetics and to assess alterations in the gut and skin microbiota of patients with moderate to severe rosacea in response to varying formulations of antimicrobial treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cutaneous disorder primarily of convexities of the central part of the FACE, such as FOREHEAD; CHEEK; NOSE; and CHIN. It is characterized by FLUSHING; ERYTHEMA; EDEMA; RHINOPHYMA; papules; and ocular symptoms. It may occur at any age but typically after age 30. There are various subtypes of rosacea: erythematotelangiectatic, papulopustular, phymatous, and ocular (National Rosacea Society's Expert Committee on the Classification and Staging of Rosacea, J Am Acad Dermatol 2002; 46:584-7).

Fluorides, usually in pastes or gels, used for topical application to reduce the incidence of DENTAL CARIES.

A synthetic TETRACYCLINE derivative with similar antimicrobial activity. Animal studies suggest that it may cause less tooth staining than other tetracyclines. It is used in some areas for the treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria (MALARIA, FALCIPARUM).

A manifestation of severe ROSACEA resulting in significant enlargement of the NOSE and occurring primarily in men. It is caused by hypertrophy of the SEBACEOUS GLANDS and surrounding CONNECTIVE TISSUE. The nose is reddened and marked with TELANGIECTASIS.

Sodium or potassium salts of long chain fatty acids. These detergent substances are obtained by boiling natural oils or fats with caustic alkali. Sodium soaps are harder and are used as topical anti-infectives and vehicles in pills and liniments; potassium soaps are soft, used as vehicles for ointments and also as topical antimicrobials.
