Prostanoids and Hair Follicles: Implications for Therapy of Hair Disorders
Xue-Gang Xu, Hong-Duo Chen
Prostanoids, including prostaglandins (PGs) and thromboxane A2 (TXA2), are a family of lipid-derived autacoids that modulate many physiological systems and pathological contexts. Prostanoids are generated by sequential metabolism of arachidonic acid, catalysed by cyclo-oxygenase, to PGH2, which is then converted to PGD2, PGE2, PGF2α, PGI2 and TXA2, catalysed by their specific synthases. Recent ev ...

Marie-Ange Dagnelie, Stéphane Corvec, Mélanie Saint-Jean, Valérie Bourdès, Jean-Michel Nguyen, Amir Khammari, Brigitte Dréno
Propionibacterium acnes, a major member of normal skin microbiota, is subdivided into 6 phylotypes: IA1, IA2, IB, IC, II and III. This study investigated P. acnes subgroups on the face and back in patients with severe acne and in healthy controls. In 71.4% of patients with severe acne, P. acnes phylotypes were identical on the face and back, whereas this was the case in only 45.5% of healthy contr ...
