Updated Treatment for Acne: Targeted Therapy Based on Pathogenesis

Dr. Ichiro Kurokawa, from Department of Dermatology, Meiwa Hospital, Japan will join the Skin Ageing & Challenges 2021 Congress and will give a presentation entitled “Updated Treatment for Acne: Targeted Therapy Based on Pathogenesis“.

Dr. Kurokawa will talk about Recent advances that have facilitated potential novel approaches to acne management owing to improved understanding of the pathophysiology and immunological aspects. Biological antibodies targeting IL-1b, IL-17, IL-23, and TNFa could provide novel approaches for treating severe acne and related disorders. Research into the microbiome may also provide insights into potential future therapeutic options for acne. Biological antibodies targeting TGFb, IL-6, MMP, IGF-1, and B cells may be a potential strategy for the prevention and treatment of this type of scar in the future. Future treatment for acne should embrace approaches that target the main etiological factors of acne.
