Scientists have discovered staphylococcus toxin for the treatment of skin diseases

The toxins of a bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus are something really dangerous for most people who have problems with the immune system – since the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, in this case, often begins to actively multiply and spread its toxins throughout the body, which often results in various kinds of skin inflammation and irritation, along with poisoning of some internal organs. However, today's research by a team of experts from Friedrich-Schiller University on these toxins illustrates a somewhat different picture that could change the approach to the treatment of skin diseases.

In particular, a team of talented chemists and biologists thoroughly examined the features and elements of toxins secreted by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus – in particular the so-called toxin α-hemolysin – which allows the bacteria not only to quickly and punctually damage the skin and cause irritation, redness and even minor inflammation, but at the same time also provoke the opposite properties of rapid wound healing and elimination of itching in certain situations.

Psoriasis skin. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that affects the skin cause skin inflammation red and scaly.

It is not yet entirely clear how exactly this mechanism works and when exactly it is activated, however, it can be precisely noted that this toxin can become the main candidate in changing the approaches and methods of treating various skin diseases, including the most critical ones. In particular, specialists from the Friedrich-Schiller University are considering the possibility of chemical modification of the toxin α-hemolysin for the subsequent systematic treatment of acne and other similar serious disorders in the work of the skin glands.

It remains only to take a closer look at the most interesting and unusual options for using this toxin and the very mechanism of treatment in Staphylococcus aureus bacteria – and this is what chemists and biologists from the presented university are doing. In addition, they probably pay attention to the most indicative properties and features of this toxin, so that in the future it will most likely begin to undergo appropriate tests and tests for one or another chemical modification.
