    Susceptibility of Catheter-Related Klebsiella Pneumoniae Strains to Quaternary Ammonium Compounds Under Biofilm and Planktonic Conditions.Mohammad Reaza Shakibaie, Fatemeh Monirzadeh, Melika Gholamrezazadeh & Shalaleh Masoumi - 2018 - Canadian Journal Infection Control 33 (4):215-219.
    Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the susceptibility of catheter-related Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates to two biocides (benzalkonium chloride and Deconex) under biofilm and planktonic conditions. Methods: A total of 85 strains of K. pneumoniae were isolated from catheters of inpatients hospitalized in four hospitals in Kerman, Iran. Susceptibility to antibiotics and biocides under biofilm and planktonic growths was performed using the microdilution method. Antibiofilm activity of the biocides was determined by microtiter assay. Biofilm eradication (...)
