Interactions Between Atopic Dermatitis and Staphylococcus aureus Infection: Clinical Implications.

Interactions Between Atopic Dermatitis and Staphylococcus aureus Infection: Clinical Implications. Allergy Asthma Immunol Res. 2019 Sep;11(5):593-603 Authors: Kim J, Kim BE, Ahn K, Leung DYM Abstract Staphylococcus aureus commonly colonizes the skin of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients and contributes to the development and exacerbation of AD. Multiple factors are associated with colonization of AD skin by S. aureus, including the strength of S. aureus-corneocyte adhesion, deficiency of antimicrobial peptides, decreased levels of filaggrin and filaggrin degradation products, overexpressed Th2/Th17 cytokines, microbial dysbiosis and altered lipid profiles. S. aureus colonization on AD skin causes skin barrier dysfunction through virulence factors such as superantigens (toxins), enzymes and other proteins. Furthermore, colonization of AD skin by S. aureus exacerbates AD and may contribute to microbial dysbiosis, allergen sensitization, Th2/Th17 polarization, development of atopic march and food allergy in AD patients. Skin colonization of S. aureus, particularly methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), is one of the major challenges commonly encountered in the management of AD. Bleach bath, and topical or systemic antibiotics could be used to control S. aureus infection on AD skin. However, careful use of antibiotics is required to control the occurence of MRSA. Recently, various strategies, including microbiome transplant, monoclonal antibodies against virule...

Previous studies demonstrated that secondary bacterial infection could enhance HP-PRRSV infection-mediated inflammatory responses, but it is unknown whether early bacterial infection could enhance the HP-PRRSV MLV-like infectio...

Authors: Chiba Y, Fukushima A, Nakao M, Kobayashi Y, Ishigaki T, Tenma T, Kamiya K, Shingu Y, Ooka T, Matsui Y, Anzai T Abstract A 23-year-old man had progressive muscle weakness and Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) due to a LMNA (lamin A/C) mutation. Congestive heart failure diagnosed at 19 years of age. Maximal drug treatment/cardiac resynchronization failed to improve the cardiac function. He was therefore hospitalized due to heart failure. Despite extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, he developed severe right heart dysfunction and died (multiple organ failure). A cardiac lesion's presence determines the...

The ZnO-HT-PAN_H showed better dye-removing or antibacterial results in comparison with using either zinc oxide or HT embedded in PAN nanofibers. The resulted PAN nanofibers containing mere ZnO were proved to be holdin...
