Bacterial biofilms are formed when unicellular organisms come together to form a community that is attached to a solid surface and encased in an exopolysacharide matrix. When growing in the biofilm phenotype, bacteria are able to survive in hostile environments and acquire increased antibiotic tolerance and resistance to clearance by the host immune system. Currently there is an urgent need for new antibacterial agents with low susceptibility to resistance development. In this study, two convent...
