Review, 2018: The Gut Microbiome as a Major Regulator of the Gut-Skin Axis:

Review, 2018: The Cutaneous Microbiome and Wounds: New Molecular Targets to Promote Wound Healing

Review, 2017: The role of microbiota, and probiotics and prebiotics in skin health:

Microbial guardians of skin health (2019): "Here, we focus on Staphylococcus epidermidis as a “poster child” of the skin microbiota to illustrate the remarkable diversity of functions a microbe can exert on skin physiology and health"

Minor taxa in human skin microbiome contribute to the personal identification (2018):

MAVS deficiency induces gut dysbiotic microbiota conferring a proallergic phenotype (mice, 2018): "Collectively, we unveiled an unexpected impact of RIG-I–like signaling on the gut microbiota with consequences on allergic skin disease outcome. Primarily, these data indicate that manipulating the gut microbiota may help in the development of therapeutic strategies for the treatment of human allergic skin pathologies"

Ultraviolet radiation, both UVA and UVB, influences the composition of the skin microbiome (2018):

The human skin microbiota is a rich source of bacteriocin producing staphylococci which kill human pathogens. (2018):


Acne vulgaris patients have a distinct gut microbiota in comparison with healthy controls (2017):

Gut microbiota alterations in moderate to severe acne vulgaris patients (2018):

contrary to what was previously thought, proliferation of P. acnes is not the trigger of acne as patients with acne do not harbour more P. acnes in follicles than normal individuals. Instead, the loss of the skin microbial diversity together with the activation of the innate immunity might lead to this chronic inflammatory condition (2018):

Isotretinoin and lymecycline treatments modify the skin microbiota in acne. This study provides insight into the skin microbiota in acne and how it is modulated by systemic acne treatment.

Minocycline for Acne Changes Skin Microbiota (Feb 2019): Association of Systemic Antibiotic Treatment of Acne With Skin Microbiota Characteristics. Antibiotics for Acne—A Pilot Study of Collateral Damage to the Skin Microbiome.


Hair Regrowth in Alopecia Patients After Fecal Transplant for Recurrent CDI

Another article about FMT curing alopecia universalis:

Gut microbiota plays a role in the development of alopecia areata

Intestinal Dysbiosis and Biotin Deprivation Induce Alopecia through Overgrowth of Lactobacillus murinus in Mice (2017): -

Scalp bacterial shift in Alopecia areata (April 2019): "Our results highlight, for the first time, the presence of a microbial shift on the scalp of patients suffering from AA"


Supplemental feeding of a gut microbial metabolite of linoleic acid, 10-hydroxy-cis-12-octadecenoic acid, alleviates spontaneous atopic dermatitis and modulates intestinal microbiota in NC/nga mice:

In this study we found that rural South African children had a high relative abundance of Prevotella copri which was linked to diet and protective for atopic dermatitis (2018):

Gut microbiota dysbiosis has been shown to precede the onset of AD In our study (Mar 2019), we identified some OTUs associated with AD. Our results revealed that AD GM is characterised by low colonisation of OTUs that have a role in the maintenance of gut health, like Actinomyces and Eggerthella.

A Microbiome-Based Index for Assessing Skin Health and Treatment Effects for Atopic Dermatitis in Children (Aug 2019)


Review, 2016: The microbiome and atopic eczema: More than skin deep. We emphasize that the microbiome of separate systems, including the gut, has a significant role to play in the manifestation of this cutaneous disorder.

Immune-modulatory genomic properties differentiate gut microbiota of infants with and without eczema:

Eczema-associated bacteria may be kept in check by a different microbe Quorum sensing between bacterial species on the skin protects against epidermal injury in atopic dermatitis (May 2019):


Crucial Role of Microbiota in Experimental Psoriasis Revealed by a Gnotobiotic Mouse Model (Feb 2019): "The present findings provide evidence that intestinal and skin microbiota directly regulates imiquimod-induced skin inflammation (IISI) and emphasizes the importance of microbiota in the pathogenesis of psoriasis"

Intestinal microbiota profiling and predicted metabolic dysregulation in psoriasis patients (2018):

Is psoriasis a bowel disease? Successful treatment with bile acids and bioflavonoids suggests it is (2018):


Dysbiosis of gut microbiota by ampicillin exacerbates vitiligo

You can’t perform that action at this time.
