Despite the increasing recognition of the role played by mixed species biofilms in health and disease, the behavior and factors modulating these biofilms remain elusive. We therefore compared the effect of serum, two dietary sugars (sucrose and galactose) and a biocide, chlorhexidine digluconate, on a dual species biofilm (DSB) of Candida albicans and Escherichia coli and, their single species biofilm (SSB) counterparts. Both modes of biofilm growth on polystyrene plastic surfaces were… CONTINUE READING
