Late inflammatory monocytes define circulatory immune dysregulation observed in skin microbiome-stratified atopic dermatitis.


Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a skin in ammatory disorder well described for signi cant disease heterogeneity. (1) Previously, we de ned steady-state microbial con gurations dermotypes A and B that robustly re ected heterogeneity in AD clinical severity, cutaneous barrier properties and skin microbiome composition. (2) Here, we explored circulating immune dysregulation underlying dermotype-strati ed AD. We performed single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) of PBMCs from healthy subjects with dermotype A (n = 4) and AD patients with dermotypes A (n = 4) and B (n = 6). UMAP reduction distinguished 13 major immune clusters using transcriptional pro le di erences, identi ed using DISCO CELLiD (3) and top di erentially expressed genes (DEGs; Supplementary Figure 1A ). Major clusters corroborated well across all groups as a testimony to limited sample distortion by inter-individual or batch e ects (Supplementary Figure 1B ). Critically, AD patients harboured a marked enrichment in monocyte population cluster 1, whereby dermotype strati cation saw a further enrichment in dermotype B
