Survey for Correlation between Biofilm Formation and Virulence Determinants in a Collection of Pathogenic and Fecal Enterococcus faecalis Isolates

Abstract

BACKGROUND Enterococcus faecalis is an opportunistic pathogen that causes most of the enterococcal infections. Among the different factors implicated in the pathogenesis of these organisms, biofilm formation and antibiotic resistance are the most important. The ability for biofilm formation has been attributed to the presence of some virulence genes… (More)
