Abstract:

Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that are attached to a surface and play a significant role in the persistence of bacterial infections. Biofilm bacteria are highly resistant to antimicrobial agents and host immune responses resulting in chronic infection. There is paucity of information regarding biofilm bacteria of veterinary importance and their role in disease pathogenesis. Biofilm associated infection can cause huge economic loss in livestock industries in terms of production. For example, chronic mastitis due to biofilm producing Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus spp. is almost incurable with common antibiotics. Moreover, biofilm bacteria are potential zoonotic agents. So we should ventured alternative managemental practices to fight against biofilm bacteria.
