Biofilm formation on medical devices is associated with hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infections. Due to biofilms’ high tolerance to antibiotics, classical treatments lack efficacy, and removal of the biofilm-contaminated device is often the only therapeutic option. […]
In vivo Study of Biofilm-Associated Catheter Infections
We developed a clinically relevant in vivo model of catheter-associated biofilm infections to design new and efficient biofilm-eradication approaches applicable to contaminated totally implantable venous access port (TIVAP) catheters. Key publications • Chauhan, A., J.M. […]
