Bacterial biofilms in nature and disease.
Integrated assessment of cropping systems in the Eastern Indo-Gangetic plain
Testing the susceptibility of bacteria in biofilms to antibacterial agents
This minireview discusses the parameters that should be considered in the development of experimental protocols for study of the efficacy of antibacterial agents against pathogenic bacteria in biofilm.
Adequacy of dialysis and nutrition in continuous peritoneal dialysis: association with clinical outcomes. Canada-USA (CANUSA) Peritoneal Dialysis Study Group.
Analysis of the patient and technique survival used the Cox proportional hazards model with adequacy of dialysis and nutritional status as time-dependent covariates and the relative risk of death increased with increased age, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, decreased serum albumin concentration and worsened nutritional status.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa was cultivated at low growth rates under iron-limiting conditions on acrylic tiles and biofilm cells exhibited increased tobramycin resistance compared with that of planktonic cells, but on suspension of the biofilm bacteria, glycocalyx-mediated resistance was lost.

Old biofilm bacteria, examined at day 7, were the most resistant and 15% of the cells were found to be viable after they were exposed to 200 mg/l of tobramycin for 5 h, while young biofilm cells of P. aeruginosa (day 2 of colonization) were foundto be more resistant.
