About this book

The aim of this book is to provide readers with a wide overview of the main healthcare-associated infections caused by bacteria and fungi able to grow as biofilm. The recently acquired knowledge on the pivotal role played by biofilm-growing microorganisms in healthcare-related infections has given a new dynamic to detection, prevention and treatment of these infections in patients admitted to both acute care hospitals and long-term care facilities. Clinicians, hygienists and microbiologists will be updated by leading scientists on the state-of-art of biofilm-based infections and on the most innovative strategies for prevention and treatment of these infections, often caused by emerging multidrug-resistant biofilm-growing microorganisms.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The purpose is to summarize our knowledge of biofilm-based HAIs, for infections that are well recognized as biofilm-based as well as for less well-characterized infections. … this is a worthy addition to the shelves of clinician-scientists wishing to gain a better appreciation of the role of biofilms in HAIs and those who desire a concise compilation of forward-looking approaches to treatment and prevention of these infections.” (Mark E. Rupp, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2015)
