Studies focusing on healthy volunteers have demonstrated that Staphylococcus , Micrococcus , Corynebacterium , Brevibacteria, Propionibacteria
, and Acinetobacter species regularly reside in normal skin.
After 28 days of treatment, the antibiotic-treated facial skin had significantly less Actinobacteria species, including corynebacteria and propionibacteria
acidophilus, Leuconostoc lactis, Bifidobacterium longum (11), and some strains of Propionibacteria
Acne is not an infectious disease in the classical sense; however, inflammatory acne can be viewed as an infection of the blocked pilosebaceous ducts with Propionibacteria
which are trapped by cornified plugs within the follicular ducts.

More specifically, topics addressed in the first section include identification of new protective cultures and culture components, antifungal lactic acid bacteria and propionibacteria
, and the potential of reuterin produced by Lactobacillus reuterie as a broad spectrum preservative.
Is antibiotic resistance in cutaneous propionibacteria
Most bacterial DFM for young calves contain LAB, whereas dairy propionibacteria
are rarely used.
The researchers also discovered differences in infant flora by body site, with streptococci, staphylococci, and propionibacteria
being most prevalent on the forehead; streptococci, staphylococci, and corynebacteria being most prevalent on the arms; and clostridia, streptococci, and ruminococci being most prevalent on the buttocks.
Propionicin PLG-1 (MW 10000 Da) was reported to be active against a variety of microorganisms such as propionibacteria
and many other G(+) and G(-) bacteria and even yeasts and fungi .
