First human trial of antibacterial contact lens

.... The US Centers for Disease Control estimate that biofilms account for at least two-thirds of all chronic bacterial infections. Biosignal and the Institute for Eye Research have tested antibiofilm compounds and generated proof of concept data in a broad range of product categories in the medical, industri...

Understanding how bacteria communicate may help scientists prevent disease

...ant to antibiotics, so preventing the formation of biofilms or short-circuiting bacteria's ability to become virulent by disturbing their communication network so they remain harmless, is an alternative strategy to controlling disease," he said.
