D. Katsambas et al. 1007/978-3-662-45139-7_1, © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015 3 4 Definition and Epidemiology Acne vulgaris (acne) is the most common skin disorder, affecting more than 80 % of adolescents, although it may present at any age. It has been defined as a chronic inflammatory dermatosis characterized by comedones and inflammatory lesions, including papules, pustules, and nodules, on sebum-rich body areas such as the face and trunk. It may be associated with a severe psychological and social impairment, as it may result in dysmorphia and permanent scarring, with a risk of low self-esteem and depression.

Hormonal therapy should be individualized for female acne patients. 1 Acne Other Treatment Options for Acne Other therapeutic options that have been used for acne treatment include the extraction of closed and open comedones, laser, and light sources, while chemical peels and lasers may be used for acne scarring. Laser and light therapies, including blue or red light, intense pulsed light (IPL), and pulsed-dye laser (PDL), have been used for acne. It is known that P. acnes produces porphyrins, particularly coproporphyrin III.

The enzymes involved in cutaneous androgen metabolism, such as 5α-reductase type 1, steroid sulfatase, and 3-β hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, may represent attractive targets for pharmacologic inhibition in acne treatment. Blocking the Activation of Toll-Like Receptors (TLRs) P. acnes has been shown to induce an increased expression of TLR-2, TLR-4, and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) by human keratinocytes and to stimulate keratinocyte proliferation. Blocking the activation of TLRs could therefore represent an attractive therapeutic target.
