Antibiotic resistance of biomaterial-adherent coagulase-negative and coagulase-positive staphylococci

Antibiotic resistance of biomaterial-adherent coagulase-negative and coagulase-positive staphylococci

Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research 1990(261): 126-133

Whether or not bacterial populations are massively enclosed in slime, it appears that antibiotic resistance, when compared to suspension organisms, is related to surface adhesion and to the specific material of the substratum. These findings are of significance in the understanding and treatment of biomaterial-localized infections.
