Michael Brandwein, Garold Fuks, Avigail Israel, Ashraf Al-Ashhab, Deborah Nejman, Ravid Straussman, Emmilia Hodak, Marco Harari, Doron Steinberg, Zvi Bentwich, Noam Shental, Shiri Meshner
Dead Sea climatotherapy (DSC) is a therapeutic modality for a variety of chronic skin conditions including psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatitis. Previous studies have documented microbiome changes following therapeutic regimens for the aforementioned diseases. In the article entitled "Temporal Stability of the Healthy Human Skin Microbiome Following Dead Sea Climatotherapy," the authors describe changes to the healthy skin fungal and bacterial microbiome following Dead Sea climatotherapy. Their research sheds light on the temporal dynamics of the skin microbiome using this therapeutic regimen and is important in the understanding of its mechanisms.
