Abstract: Biomaterial-associated infection is recognised as one of the main risks for failure of medical devices. The presence of a foreign material in tissues has been suggested to compromise the ability of host cells to eradicate infection. In addition, a protective biofilm formed by bacteria limits the effectiveness of administered antibiotics, which underscores the importance of preventive measures. The use of implant surface modifications that resist bacteria is a promising approach to reduce the inf... more
