Adhesion of fimbriated and non-fimbriated Klebsiella strains to synthetic polymers.

Abstract

Adherence of three fimbriated and non-fimbriated Klebsiella strains to polyetherurethane was investigated in order to assess the possible role of fimbriae in the adhesion of Klebsiella to synthetic polymers. Fimbriated strains with type 1 and type 1.3 fimbriae adhere significantly stronger to polyurethane than the same strains lacking fimbriae, whereas a… (More)
