abstract = "Background: A strong link between disease severity and Staphylococcus aureus colonization of the skin has been reported in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). Objectives: To examine temporal variations in S. aureus colonization and S. aureus CC type in patients with AD, and to investigate links to disease severity, skin barrier properties and filaggrin gene (FLG) mutations. Methods: This was a follow-up study of a cohort of 101 adult patients with AD recruited from an outpatient clinic. Bacterial swabs were taken at baseline and follow-up from lesional skin, nonlesional skin and the nose. Swabs positive for S. aureus were characterized by spa and the respective clonal complex (CC) type was assigned. Patients were characterized with respect to disease severity [Scoring Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD)], skin barrier properties [transepidermal water loss (TEWL), pH] and FLG mutations. Results: In total, 63 patients participated in a follow-up visit. Twenty-seven patients (43{\%}) were colonized at both visits, 27 were colonized at only one visit and nine (14{\%}) were not colonized at either visit. Of patients colonized at both visits, 52{\%} remained colonized with the same CC type at follow-up. Change in CC type was related to an increase in SCORAD of 10·7 points; patients who carried the same CC type had a reduction in SCORAD of 4·4 points. Significantly higher skin pH was found in patients colonized at both visits, while change in CC type was not related to TEWL, pH or FLG mutations. Conclusions: The data indicate that temporal variation in S. aureus CC type is linked to flares of the disease.",
