The influence of various concentrations (0.003-8 mg/mL) of N-acetylcysteine on the formation of biofilms by 15 strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis has been studied. A dose-related decrease in biofilm formation was observed, except with the lowest concentrations. The 'slime' index relative to the control was 63%, 55%, 46%, 34%, 26% and 26% in the presence(More)
The influence of various incubation atmospheres on the growth and slime production of 23Staphylococcus epidermidis strains was studied. The atmospheres evaluated were aerobiosis (control), anaerobiosis, candle jar, 5 % CO2 and 10 % CO2. As compared to the aerobic control, growth was 55.7 ± 19 % (p<0.01) in anaerobic incubation, 113.7 ± 12 % (p<0.01) in 5 %(More)
