Skin microbiota play an integral role in the maturation and homeostatic regulation of keratinocytes and host immune networks with systemic implications. As our primary interface with the external environment, the bio...

Introduction Minocycline is an effective treatment for inflammatory cutaneous conditions, such as acne vulgaris and rosacea, infectious conditions and has recently been investigated for its neuroprotective properties.
