Long-term low-dose macrolides alter response in patients with chronic sessile Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization. We examined the effect of clarithromycin on 1) adherence of P. aeruginosa cells and 2) biofilm formation. A suspended-coupon continuous-flow biofilm reactor model was used. Adherent P. aeruginosa bacteria were established for 24 h, immediately(More)
