Acne vac­cine

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Good news for the many Aus­tralians cur­rently liv­ing with acne – a cure may be on the hori­zon. A study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of In­ves­tiga­tive Der­ma­tol­ogy has re­vealed that a cer­tain group of an­ti­bod­ies pro­duced by the skin may be able to neu­tralise acne’s in­flam­ma­tory ef­fects. The re­searchers are cur­rently de­vel­op­ing a way to ad­min­is­ter the an­ti­bod­ies via a vac­cine and, if suc­cess­ful, it’s tipped to be more ef­fec­tive ( and have fewer side ef­fects) than other treat­ments cur­rently on the mar­ket.
