Psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are chronic immune-mediated inflammatory diseases of multifactorial etiology. In addition to genetic and environmental factors, evidence supports involvement of a dysregulated human microbiome in the pathogenesis of psoriatic disease. In particular, alterations in the composition of the microbiome, termed dysbiosis, can result in downstream proinflammatory effects in the gut, skin, and joints. Both the cutaneous and intestinal microbial populations are implicated in the pathogenesis of psoriatic disease, although exact mechanisms are unclear. Herein, we review the relationship between the human microbiome and psoriatic disease. Further insight into the functions of the microbiome may allow for greater understanding of inflammatory disease processes and identification of additional therapeutic targets.

Abstract Background Several studies have found that the microbiota of psoriatic lesions is different from that of healthy skin. Objective To characterize the microbiota of lesional and unaffected skin in patients with psoriasis and controls, and investigate the correlation between cutaneous microbiota and clinical features of psoriasis. Methods Using quantitative PCR and 16S rRNA sequencing, we assayed the profiles of cutaneous microbiota in controls, unaffected skin and psoriatic lesions. We al...

In the past three decades, extraordinary advances have been made in the understanding of the pathogenesis of, and treatment options for, inflammatory arthritides, including rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis. The use of methotrexate and subsequently biologic therapies (such as TNF inhibitors, among others) and oral small molecules have substantially improved clinical outcomes for many patients with inflammatory arthritis; for others, however, these agents do not substantially improve the...

The development of next generation sequencing, coupled with advances in bio-informatics, has provided new insights into the role of the cutaneous microbiome in the pathophysiology of a range of inflammatory skin diseases. In fact, it has even been suggested that the identification of specific skin microbial signatures may not only be useful in terms of diagnosis of skin diseases but they may also ultimately help inform personalised treatment strategies. To date, research investigating the role o...

Purpose of reviewOsteoarthritis is a debilitating disease leading to joint degeneration, inflammation, pain, and disability. Despite efforts to develop a disease modifying treatment, the only accepted and available clinical approaches involve palliation. Although many factors contribute to the devel

BACKGROUND: There is increasing evidence of the key role that the gut microbiota plays in inflammatory diseases. OBJECTIVES: To identify differences in the faecal microbial composition of patients with psoriasis compared with healthy individuals in order to unravel the microbiota profiling in this autoimmune disease. METHODS: 16S rRNA gene sequencing and bioinformatic analyses were performed with the total DNA extracted from the faecal microbiota of 19 patients with psoriasis and 20 healthy indi...

Background and Objective Immunotherapy could change the complex host-microbial interactions. We aimed to investigate the dynamics of gut microbiome in response to secukinumab [an interleukin (IL)-17 inhibitor] and ustekinumab (an IL-12/23 inhibitor) therapy and its association with treatment response in psoriasis.

Abstract Background Emerging evidence suggests that dysbiosis, imbalanced gut microbial community, might be a key player in the development of various diseases, including inflammatory arthropathies, such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis (mainly, ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis), and osteoarthritis. Yet, the underlying mechanisms and corresponding interactions remain poorly understood. Methods We conducted a critical and extensive literature review to explore the associat...

: The existence of a gut-skin axis is supported by increasing evidence, but its translational potential is not widely recognized. Studies linked inflammatory skin diseases to an imbalanced gut microbiome; hence, the modulation of the gut microbiota to improve skin condition seems to be a feasible approach. Today, there is a growing interest in natural products as alternatives to synthetic drugs. In this respect, oral probiotics could be a simple, safe and cheap modality in the therapeutic manage...

Despite recent advances in understanding microbial diversity in skin homeostasis, the relevance of microbial dysbiosis in inflammatory disease is poorly understood. Here we perform a comparative analysis of skin microbial communities coupled to global patterns of cutaneous gene expression in patients with atopic dermatitis or psoriasis. The skin microbiota is analysed by 16S amplicon or whole genome sequencing and the skin transcriptome by microarrays, followed by integration of the data layers....

The high volume of information produced in the age of omics was and still is an important step to understanding several pathological processes, providing the enlightenment of complex molecular networks and the identification of molecular targets associated with many diseases. Despite these remarkable scientific advances, the majority of the results are disconnected and divergent, making their use limited. Skin diseases with alterations in the Notch signaling pathway were extensively studied duri...
