Medical Biofilms, Detection, Prevention and Control
Biofilms are formed by microorganisms growing on surfaces and comprise a series of microcolonies interspersed with spaces through which fluids and other microorganisms move. In medicine, the primary problems are biofilms associated with implants: infections are increasingly difficult to treat with traditional antibiotics and removal of the implant often becomes essential, frequently leading to higher morbidity and mortality.
* This will be the first book dedicated to medical biofilms.
* It will cover much recent information on the problems of biofilms, how to detect them and how to control their presence.
