This workshop will introduce and discuss the impact of biofilms in wounds and to strengthen the knowledge of difficulties in diagnosis and treatment.
The importance of the bacterial biofilm mode of growth is becoming increasingly renowned as improved methods to study sessile bacteria have become available. Experimental evidence has accumulated over the years showing that biofilms tolerate antimicrobial properties of the immune system, antiseptics and antibiotics. In spite of many “smoking guns” the question is still whether biofilms are important for wound healing?
In this workshop two of the most cited experts are presenting and discussing their take on wounds and biofilms.
