Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) is, by far, a
highlighted immunomodulator that in recent years has
gained prominence for its performance in experimental
clinical studies, prophylaxis, and therapeutics of infectious
diseases and neoplasms.
If, on the one hand, it can act as an opportunistic
pathogen, on the other, can be used as an
immunomodulator and in the oncological area.
Furthermore, it is also considered a proposal to strengthen
the immune system to combat severe acute respiratory
syndrome caused by coronavirus 2 (Sars-Cov-2). In other
words, its application extends from bacteria, fungi, and
parasitic protozoa to viruses. However, even with its
growing applications in human medicine, little has been
reported in the field of veterinary medicine.
With that said, this review has the purpose of
directing the scientific community to the potential of C.
acnes aimed attreating pathology, especially in animals.
