Episode 38: Can We Take The "Anti" Out of Antibiotic Use in Dermatology?Release Date: November 03, 2022
In Episode 38 of Derms and Conditions, our host James Q. Del Rosso, DO sits down with Chris Bunick, MD, PhD, an Associate Professor of Dermatology at Yale University. The two discuss the important topic of antibiotic stewardship in Dermatology.
Dr. Bunick begins by sharing his unique background and how he became interested in structural biology and the way medications work at a molecular level. Once he discovered his passion for Dermatology, he turned his attention to understanding antibiotics and how resistance develops. In this episode, he reviews new data on the effects antibiotics have on our microbiome and overall health. He also discusses sarecycline and how its unique properties compared to other tetracyclines help limit resistance and adverse effects. Since Dermatologists prescribe more antibiotics than any other specialty, this is definitely an episode you won’t want to miss!
