Nosocomial, or hospital acquired, infections, are ubiquitous within the modem clinical setting leading to over $5 billion annually of related healthcare costs in North America. All indwelling deviees are highly susceptible to bacterial colonization where physico-chemical interactions between bacteria and biomaterial surfaces have been implicated as determinant factors in the fate of the initial adhesion processes. It has been proposed that by exploiting interference strategies within this… Expand
