Yale-led study zeroes in on mutation linked to zits
“Little is known about the genetic causes of pimples and other forms of acne that plague most teenagers. In a new study, a team of Yale researchers identified a genetic mutation responsible for the defects that give rise to mild and severe acne. Their finding might point to new targets for acne treatment.”

Epidemiology of acne vulgaris.
“Despite acne being an almost universal condition in younger people, relatively little is known about its epidemiology. We sought to review what is known about the distribution and causes of acne by conducting a systematic review of relevant epidemiological studies. We searched Medline and Embase to the end of November 2011.”

A new, small study has shown that applying a topical cream containing the bacteria leads to healthier skin and could be used to treat acne and promote healing in wounds.”
