Download the clinical summary of a recently published review1 summarising why biofilm is a key challenge for clinicians caring for chronic wounds.

  • Biofilm is present in the majority of chronic wounds2
  • It is a key cause of delayed wound healing3 and a precursor to infection4
  • Formation tends to occur when wound moisture and exudate are not well controlled5

Biofilm has an increased tolerance to antimicrobials and antibiotics6

More research is needed to identify a rapid accurate technique to identify and characterise biofilms in ways that optimise their validity in diagnosing or screening patient risk of infection or delayed healing and to inform clinical decisions.1
