Biofilm Infections by Thomas Bjarnsholt (auth.), Thomas Bjarnsholt, Peter Østrup

By Thomas Bjarnsholt (auth.), Thomas Bjarnsholt, Peter Østrup Jensen, Claus Moser, Niels Høiby (eds.)

There has been an expanding curiosity and emphasis at the sessile bacterial way of life biofilms because it used to be came across that the majority of the whole microbial biomass exists as biofilms. Leeuwenhoek first defined the aggregation of micro organism in 1677, however it used to be just recently well-known as being very important in persistent an infection. In 1993, the yankee Society for Microbiology (ASM) well-known that the biofilm mode of development was once appropriate to microbiology. This booklet covers either the facts for biofilms in lots of persistent bacterial infections in addition to the issues dealing with those infections reminiscent of diagnostics, pathogenesis, remedy regimes, and in vitro and in vivo versions for learning biofilms. this is often the 1st medical ebook on biofilm infections, with chapters written through global- well known scientists and clinicians. The meant viewers of this publication contains scientists, lecturers on the collage point, in addition to clinicians. in regards to the Editors: Thomas Bjarnsholt, Ph.D., Technical college of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark Peter Oestrup Jensen, Dept. of scientific Microbiology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark Claus Moser, Ph.D., Dept. of scientific Microbiology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark Niels Hoeby, Dept. of medical Microbiology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark

Example text

In Fazli et al. (2009), it was shown that S. aureus is more likely to be at the surface of the wounds and that P. aeruginosa resides deeper in the tissue. This again adds fuel to the debate whether to use swabs or biopsies in detection of presence of bacteria. Traditionally, wound microbiology has been described in three phases: contamination, colonization, and infection. Contamination refers to the presence of bacteria that are not multiplying, whereas colonization refers to bacteria which are growing within the wound but not causing tissue damage.
