Which factors influence Demodex proliferation? A retrospective pilot study highlighting a possible role of subtle immune variations and sebaceous gland status.

J Dermatol 2021 May 9. Epub 2021 May 9.

Institut de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Biologie humaine et moléculaire (IRIBHM), Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium.

Demodex folliculorum and brevis are commensal mites that live in low densities in human pilosebaceous follicles as part of the normal adult microbiota, but that give rise to demodicosis and, possibly, rosacea, when they proliferate excessively. This proliferation is favored by various factors, including age, marked immunosuppression, sebaceous gland hyperplasia, and hypervascularization-related factors. To study possible factors influencing mite proliferation, we explored the effects of different variables on Demodex densities (Dd) in a retrospective study of two groups of subjects selected on the basis of their clinical diagnosis: Demodex+, consisting of subjects with demodicosis or with centro-facial papulopustules suggesting rosacea (n = 844, mean Dd 263.

Multifaceted MRGPRX2: New Insight into the Role of Mast Cells in Health and Disease.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2021 May 3. Epub 2021 May 3.

Department of Basic and Translational Sciences, University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, Philadelphia, PA-19104, USA. Electronic address:

Cutaneous mast cells (MCs) express Mas-related G protein-coupled receptor-X2 (MRGPRX2; mouse ortholog MrgprB2), which is activated by an ever-increasing number of cationic ligands. Antimicrobial host defense peptides (HDPs) generated by keratinocytes contribute to host defense likely by two mechanisms; one involving direct killing of microbes and the other via MC activation through MRGPRX2. However, its inappropriate activation may cause pseudoallergy and likely contribute to the pathogenesis of rosacea, atopic dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, urticaria and mastocytosis.

Dysbiotic gut microbiota in inflammatory rosacea patients: another clue towards the existence of a brain-gut-skin axis.

Br J Dermatol 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Dermatology Department, Ramon y Cajal University Hospital, University of Alcala, Instituto Ramón y Cajal de Investigación Sanitaria (IRYCIS), Madrid, Spain.

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease that primarily affects young and middle-aged Caucasian women. Its etiology is multifactorial and appears to be determined by genetic predisposition, alteration of the neurovascular and immune response, as well as an altered dialogue with the microbiota. Additionally, the disease has been linked to gastrointestinal disorders such as Helicobacter pylori infection or small intestine bacterial overgrowth and even neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, revealing the existence of a brain-gut-skin axis.

Demodex Folliculitis and Recent Dupilumab Administration.

Pediatrics 2021 May;147(5)

Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Camden, New Jersey.

Two adolescent boys presented with acute acneiform eruptions in the setting of recent dupilumab administration. Subsequent investigation via direct scraping of pustules revealed live Demodex mite colonization of the face. These adolescent patients represent a population not commonly associated with Demodex folliculitis, and we theorize their baseline commensal Demodex mite population may have increased as a consequence of dupilumab-induced, focused immunomodulation.

Oral Sarecycline for Treatment of Papulopustular Rosacea: Results of a Pilot Study of Effectiveness and Safety.

J Drugs Dermatol 2021 04;20(4):426-431

Background: Cutaneous rosacea is a common inflammatory skin disorder that often presents with facial papulopustular lesions that are frequently bothersome to patients. Studies have shown oral sarecycline to be effective and safe for acne, with a low risk of side effects that are historically associated with other tetracycline-class drugs such as doxycycline and minocycline, in addition to offering a reduced risk of emergence of resistant bacteria due to its narrow-spectrum of antibiotic activity. Oral sarecycline is FDA-approved for the treatment of acne (2018). Read More
