Positive correlation between serum immuno-reactivity to Demodex-associated Bacillus proteins and Erythematotelangiectic Rosacea
British Journal of Dermatology, 06/29/2012
O’Reilly N et al. – The majority of patients with erythematotelangiectic rosacea show sera reactivity to two proteins from B.oleronius so suggesting that this bacterium may play a role in the induction of this condition. The two proteins to which patient sera reacted were found to be similar to a heat shock protein and an enzyme involved in regulating the stress response of the bacterium.
