Protein Could Be Key To Acne Therapies In The Future

One of the most common skin conditions in the world is acne, and it is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting over 50 million people in the country annually. The skin disease, which is linked to excess oil production and bacterial inflammation, usually starts in puberty, and affects adolescents and young adults across the world.

A new paper published in the journal Nature Communications tells of a discovery that could be used in the future in developing new acne therapies. The findings involve a protein called GATA6.

"affects adolescents and young adults across the world". Don't think just because you hit a certain age, the zits go away forever. I'm 60 and currently have 2 on my chin and one on my temple.
