  Biofilms, Infection, and Antimicrobial Therapy provides a comprehensive overview of the role of biofilms as they relate to infections and their impact on antimicrobial therapy. The stated goal of the editors is to develop a general understanding, among a broad audience, of the problem posed by by: 1. Biofilms in Infection and Disease Control: A Healthcare Handbook outlines the scientific evidence and rationale for the prevention of infection, the role biofilms play in infection control, and the issues concerning their resistance to antimicrobials. This book provides practical guidance for healthcare and infection control professionals, as well as students, for preventing and controlling infection. Biofilms are also the principle causes of infections of the middle-ear, dental caries, gingivitis, prostatitis and cystic fibrosis. Importantly, biofilms also significantly delay wound healing and reduce antimicrobial efficiency in at-risk or infected skin wounds. Biofilms, Infection, and Antimicrobial Therapy Rather than existing in a planktonic or free-living form, evidence indicates that microbes show a preference for living in a sessile form within complex communities called biofilms.

Dear Colleagues, Biofilms present an important problem in modern medicine. These matrix-enclosed microbial communities are involved in the majority of bacterial infections, are highly resistant to antimicrobial therapy and a common cause of therapeutic failure.

[John L Pace; Mark Rupp; R G Finch;] -- Rather than existing in a planktonic or free-living form, evidence indicates that microbes show a preference for living in a sessile form within complex communities called biofilms. Biofilms appear.   Endpoints of antimicrobial treatment of biofilm infections in vivo. Most current, general concepts on endpoints of antibiotic treatment are based on observations from acute infections for which antibiotics are usually curative (e.g. pneumonia and sepsis). This is different for biofilm by: Antimicrobial agents are usually administered during valve replacement and whenever the patient has dental work to prevent initial attachment by killing all microorganisms introduced into the bloodstream. As with biofilms on other indwelling devices, relatively few patients can be cured of a biofilm infection by antibiotic therapy alone.
