Abstract:The most striking advantage of bacteria residing in biofilm is enhanced resistance to biocide including antibiotics and disinfectants. Biocides are 100% efficient in killing cells in suspension but there are not efficient in destroying bacteria from biofilm community. Mechanisms of increased resistance of bacteria in biofilm to antibiotics is not understood. Some factors alone or in combination are considered to be responsible such as restricted penetration of antibiotics into a biofilm, slow growth rate of bi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
