PEREZ, L.R.R.; COSTA, M.C.N.; FREITAS, A.L.P.  e  BARTH, A.L.. Evaluation of biofilm production by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa isolates recovered from cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis patients. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2011, vol.42, n.2, pp.476-479. ISSN 1517-8382.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients typically suffer of persistent and recurrent lung infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa that many times possess ability for the biofilm production. Here, biofilm production among P. aeruginosa isolates recovered from sputum of CF and non-CF patients was evaluated. Most isolates were biofilm-producing independently of the patient's condition.

Palavras-chave : Pseudomonas aeruginosa; biofilm; cystic fibrosis.
