BacAttack – Control Microbial Biofilms

 
Outbreaks of clinical infections affect millions of patients worldwide annually. The present effective treatment for infections is large doses of systemically applied drugs.There is a high risk of recurring infections and biofilm formation for patients dependent on long term in-dwelling catheters and the extended dependency on antibiotics resulting in clinical drug resistance.

We present a new tool for minimizing drug resistance by upgrading existing and future medical devices through a unique self-regenerating surface that prevents biofilm formation using a stealth attack mechanism. This will be achieved by an interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) that allows for long term release of a range of antimicrobial strategies. The IPNs contain hydrogels where the antimicrobial is stored until the release starts at the insertion of the device with an expected long-term effect. Local and site-specific treatment with long term effect instead of systemic treatment implies improved patient management and citizen well-fare.
