Biological & Chemical Studies to Support the Use of Lactobacilli as a Strategy for Control of Biofilm-Producing Bacteria Paperback / softback
Chronic wounds, by definition, are those that remain in a chronic inflammatory state and therefore fail to follow normal patterns of the healing process.
The chronic wounds present a challenge to physicians and patients alike because they are very difficult to heal, inflict a huge cost to society and impair the quality of life for millions of people.
There are many factors that contribute to the development of chronic wounds.
One of the most clinically significant impediments to wound healing is infections.
Bacteria biofilm formation in wounds is the best unifying explanation for the failure of chronic wounds to heal.
This book discusses how the formulation of effective and inexpensive products will be useful to resolve infected chronic wounds with biofilm-producing bacteria.
