Abstract

These data suggest that patients with acne have a proinflammatory cytokine milieu and crucially are unable to contain early inflammatory changes due to a specific defect in immunosurveillance, namely low monocyte IL-10 production. Our observations raise the possibility that acne therapeutics might profitably target IL-10 both as a regulator of proinflammatory cytokines and in augmenting the CD14+ cell phagocytic response.
