A skin probiotic microbiome bank

Spring Dermatology & Skin Care Expo Conference
May 14-15, 2018 | Montreal, Canada

Keynote : Dermatol Res Skin Care


In this speech, I will outline you how we establish a skin probiotic microbiome bank with more than 50 skin probiotic bacteria? In addition, I will highlight how these skin probiotic bacteria can regulate our skin innate and adaptive immunity for treatment of various skin diseases including acne vulgaris. To rebalance the dysbiotic skin microbiome, our strategy of using precision microbiome approaches is to exclusively trigger the fermentation of probiotic bacteria by selective fermentation initiators (SFIs), which will amplify the fermentative (zymological) activity of probiotic bacteria against pathogens. SFIs can be synthesized from carbohydrates, polymers andor lipids (PSL). Unlike antibiotics, SFIs eliminate pathogens by boosting zymological activity of probiotic bacteria. I will summarize how skin probiotic bacteria and SFIs impact the future development of drugs, vaccines, probiotics/prebiotics and diagnostics for treatments of skin diseases
