The role of antimicrobial peptides in inflammatory skin diseases
By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
Inflammatory skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis and rosacea, are susceptible to microbial infections. This is due to a deficiency of the innate immunity in the body. Antimicrobial peptides play an important role in skin protection. The cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide (CAMP) is an important factor for skin's innate immune mechanism and plays a critical role in prevention of pathogen infection. Previous studies indicated that the production of CAMP was regulated by vitamin D3. But a new signaling mechanism, sphingosine 1-phosphate, could be useful in the development of new compounds or drugs that could be used to improve the innate immunity against the microbes.
