Bactériologie - Le biofilm en médecine vétérinaire équine (2020)

Abstract : Biofilm is a community lifestyle that allows bacteria to survive in a hostile environment through greater resistance to host immune response, antimicrobial drug and disinfectants compared to bacteria in their free form. The biofilm is a complex heterogeneous structure consisting of one or more bacterial populations, embedded in a self-produced extracellular matrix, which has the ability to attach itself to a biotic or abiotic surface. First described in human medicine, biofilms are also involved in bacterial infections in animals and equine in particular. A better knowledge of these biofilms (training mechanism and composition) makes it possible today to consider new therapeutic strategies.
