Description - Medical Biofilms by Jana Jass
Biofilms are a common problem in the medical and dental industries. The increased use of implants such as catheters, prostheses and pacemakers in medical practice leads to complications resulting from biofilm formation. Infections associated with implants and chronic infections of tissues are often difficult to treat with traditional antibiotic therapy and frequently become persistent. Medical Biofilms provides a comprehensive guide describing the problems that biofilms create. It includes examples, the techniques used to detect biofilms, and how infections involving biofilms are presently controlled and eliminated. Written by international experts in the field, this book will be essential reading for people in the medical device, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, professionals and students in medicine and dentistry, medical microbiologists and biomaterial scientists.
