Abstract

Bacterial skin infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality and consequently exert a significant medical and economic burden on healthcare resources. In an era of declining antimicrobial drug development and rising antibiotic resistance among clinical bacterial isolates, there are serious concerns that current antibiotic therapy will not provide a durable solution to this public health threat. If future immune-based therapies are to provide an alternative or complementary therapy to antibiotics, a greater understanding of the key innate and adaptive cutaneous immune responses provide host defense bacterial skin infections is essential. This chapter focuses on the host defense mechanisms against two of the most common bacterial skin pathogens, Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and group A Streptococcus.
