Abstract

Biofilm represents single species or multi-species communities that interact and cooperate with each other and their environment to carry out complex processes. One of the most important challenges is to understand intercellular communications that exist within the community that promote biofilm formation. Biofilm currently represents a major health problem as it play an important role in device-related infections such as prosthetic valves, catheters and contact lenses. The present review will focus on the mechanisms that lead to biofilm formation on surfaces and highlight several medically important pathogens.
