The emergence of bacterial resistance following exposure in healthcare facilities has been a recurrent topic of interest over the last 10 years. The overwhelming and increasing body of evidence from studies in vitro showed that bacteria have an immense capacity to respond to chemical stress brought upon by biocides. Empirically two major types of mechanisms have been described: intrinsic and acquired. However, the increasing documented response from bacteria exposed to biocide in conditions… CONTINUE READING
