Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide a brief overview of strategies that could be applied to chronic wounds harbouring biofilms. The importance of biofilms in chronic wounds is highlighted in respect of them preventing the normal wound healing processes and with regards to their resistance to removal by conventional antimicrobial agents. An array of anti-biofilm agents is provided, and the mode of action of these agents together with their efficacy in suppressing biofilms is discussed. It is hoped this article will provide foresight into wound management and promote consideration of future anti-biofilm strategies.
