Description

Biofilms now account for over 80 percent of microbial infections in the body. Applied Biomedical Microbiology: A Biofilms Approach presents an in-depth discussion of medically challenging biofilms, written from a variety of perspectives by leading researchers. It provides a solid foundation in the basic microbiology of biofilms and then goes on to discuss those biofilms associated with medical devices, catheters, and dental unit water lines as well as those that impact cardiovascular medicine, the gastrointestinal system, periodontal disease, and chronic wounds. A final chapter addresses a variety of methods used to investigate biofilms.
