The dark tunnel of eczema just got a little brighter.
There has never been a definitive answer as to why eczema occurs. There are many ideas, but now there is finally an answer for nearly 31 million eczema-sufferers. In a recent study published by the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Dr. Arkwright discovered the connection between a protein produced by a common bacteria in the skin and eczema flares.
That missing protein link is identified as immunoglobulin-binding protein or "Sbi". When the common bacteria produces “Sbi”, it causes an allergic reaction thus causing an eczema flare. This bacteria was discovered over 20 years ago, but just recently the connection between it and eczema flares has been discovered.
Over the course of the study, the results were conclusive and pointed to “Sbi” as the ultimate eczema trigger. Dr. Arkwright said that “the study shows beyond any doubt that it is Sbi that triggers eczema.”
This is very exciting news for the eczema community. Given this information, scientists can narrow their research on SBI, focus on specific treatments and ultimately find a cure.
