Staphylococcal biofilms: Facts, myth, and views

The biofilm mode of growth is the preferred lifestyle of microorganisms and can be seen virtually everywhere in nature, particularly in moist environments. However, microbial biofilms also constitute a major problem in modern medicine, which is characterized by an increased utilization of implanted medical devices that may represent a seeding ground for pathogenic microorganisms to form a biofilm and to cause disease. A major source for implant-associated infections (IAIs) are staphylococci, particularly Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). In this IRTG lecture, we will talk about this bacterium, its pathogenic potential and biofilm formation characteristics, its pivotal role in IAIs, and how this kind of infection might be reduced in the clinical setting.
