An examination of the research and translational application to prevent and treat biofilm-associated diseases
In the decade since the first edition of Microbial Biofilms was published, the interest in this field has expanded, spurring, breakthrough research that has advanced the treatment of biofilm-associated diseases. This second edition takes the reader on an exciting, extensive review of bacterial and fungal biofilms, ranging from basic molecular interactions to innovative therapies, with particular emphasis on the division of labor in biofilms, new approaches to combat the threat of microbial biofilms, and how biofilms evade the host defense.
Chapters written by established investigators cover recent findings, and contributions from investigators new to the field provide unique and fresh insights.
Microbial Biofilms is a useful reference for researchers and clinicians. It will also provide insight in the dynamic field of microbial biofilms for graduate and postgraduate students.
