    Antibacterial activity of gold nanorods againstand: misinterpretations and artifacts.
    Int J Nanomedicine 2017 9;12:7311-7322. Epub 2017 Oct 9.
    Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology, School of Pharmacy, The University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan.
    The antibacterial activity of gold nanorod (GNR) suspensions of different surface functionalities was investigated against standard strains ofand, taking into consideration two commonly "overlooked" factors: the colloidal stability of GNR suspensions upon mixing with bacterial growth media and the possible contribution of "impurities/molecules" in GNR suspensions to the observed antibacterial activity. The results demonstrated that cationic polyallylamine hydrochloride (PAH)-GNR were severely aggregated when exposed to bacterial growth media compared to other GNR suspensions. In addition, the free cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) present in GNR suspensions is most likely the origin of the observed antibacterial activity. Read More

    The Impact of Pyschological Stress on Acne.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Jul;25(2):1133-141
    Anamaria Jović, MD, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Department of Dermatology and Venereology, University of Zagreb School of Medicine, Šalata 4, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia;
    Acne is one of the most common skin disorders. It is a multifactorial and complex disease, originating in the pilosebaceous follicle where a hereditary background, androgens, skin lipids, disorders of keratinization, inflammatory signaling, and regulatory neuropeptides seem to be mainly involved. Even though emotional stress has long been suspected to trigger or exacerbate acne, its influence on acne severity has been mostly underestimated until recently when studies have brought new data about the different mechanisms and possible factors involved in this interaction.

    Do PCDD/PCDF standard solutions used in dioxin analysis pose a risk as potentially acutely toxic to lab personnel?
    Chemosphere 2017 Oct 5;185:489-498. Epub 2017 Jul 5.
    Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences (IRAS), Utrecht University, Yalelaan 104, NL-3584 CM Utrecht, The Netherlands.
    Laboratory safety requires protecting personnel from chemical exposures. Working with stock solutions of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDFs) in routine analysis of feed and food with bioanalytical or physicochemical methods raises some concerns. Since PCDD/PCDFs are considered as possibly acutely toxic, the potential risks were evaluated to determine whether supervision of their use is necessary. Read More

    Department of Dermatology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
    Clinical Question: What is the evidence for antibiotic resistance in acne, and how does resistance affect treatment?

    Bottom Line: Use of topical and systemic antibiotics for acne is associated with formation of resistance in Propionibacterium acnes and other bacteria, with clinical consequences. Guidelines recommend resistance reduction strategies including avoidance of antibiotic monotherapy, combination treatment with topical modalities, and limiting the duration of oral antibiotic use.

    Anti-acne drugs in phase 1 and 2 clinical trials.
    Expert Opin Investig Drugs 2017 Jul 19;26(7):813-823. Epub 2017 Jun 19.
    c Department of Venerology and Dermatology , Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg , Magdeburg , Germany.
    Introduction: Despite the impressive increase of knowledge on acne etiology accumulated during the last 20 years, few efforts have been overtaken to introduce new therapeutic regiments targeting the ideal treatment of acne. The increasing emergence of microbial resistance associated with antibiotics, teratogenicity, particularly associated with systemic isotretinoin, and the need for an adverse drug profile, which can be tolerated by the patient, make the need of new pathogenesis relevant anti-acne agents an emerging issue. Areas covered: A search for phase 1 and 2 acne treatment trials in the US National Institutes of Health database of clinical trials and the European Medicines Agency database with the key words 'acne' and 'treatment' was carried out, on 6 January 2017.

    Wiad Lek 2017;70(2):196-199
    DANYLO HALYTSKY LVIV NATIONAL MEDICAL UNIVERSITY, LVIV, UKRAINE.
    Introduction: One of the important problems in modern dermatology is to improve treatment efficiency of acne being a common cause for cicatricial skin changes, loss of performance capability and social activity and negatively affects the psycho-emotional state of patients and their quality of life. The topicality of the disease is due to the high degree of its proliferation, chronic and recurrent course, and resistance to existing therapies. Reducing the effectiveness of skin diseases treatment, including that of acne, at present, is associated with developing resistance to drugs, which causes the use of non-drug methods in dermatology nowadays, including low-intensity laser therapy.
