Association of biofilm production with colonization among clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii

BACKGROUND/AIMS The pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii is increasingly causing healthcare-associated infections worldwide, particularly in intensive care units. Biofilm formation, a factor contributing to the virulence of A. baumannii, is associated with long-term persistence in hospital environments. The present study investigates the clinical impact of… CONTINUE READING
