Details

Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an important human opportunistic pathogen responsible for lethal nosocomial infections, as emerged as a relevant animal pathogen. Treatment options are dramatically declining worldwide, due to massive antibiotic use and the microorganism large versatile genome. Low cell wall permeability may account for intrinsic antimicrobial resistance, besides the ability of P. aeruginosa to express acquired resistance mechanisms.

Virulence can be further enhanced by other characteristics, such as production of β-lactamases and carbapenemases and biofilm expression, which facilitates bacterial persistence in the host, evading the immunological defences and surviving at high antibiotic concentrations. This book reviews research on the P. aeruginosa isolates of veterinary origin (n=34) to investigate the relation between biofilm-forming ability and antimicrobial resistance.
