Scientists endeavor to eradicate biofilms
from McGill University Health Centre via Infection Control Today
Biofilms are slimy, gluelike membranes that are produced bacteria and fungi in order to colonize surfaces. They can grow on animal and plant tissues, and even inside the human body on medical devices such as catheters, heart valves or artificial hips. Biofilms protect microbes from the body's immune system and increase their resistance to antibiotics.
