    Implant-associated infections (IAI) are a dreaded complication mainly caused by biofilm-forming staphylococci. Implant surfaces preventing microbial colonization would be desirable. We examined the preventive effect of a silver-coated titanium aluminium niobium (TiAlNb) alloy. The surface elicited a strong, inoculum-dependent activity against Staphylococcus (S.) epidermidis and S. aureus in an...

    Research on implant infections requires cooperative efforts and integration between basic and clinical expertises. An international group of women scientists is acting together in this field. The main research topics of the participants of this group are described. Formation of bacterial biofilms, antibiotic resistance and production of virulence factors like adhesins and toxins are investigated....
