Media 1.Treating Chronic Wounds as Biofilm Infections
This movie illustrates how chronic diabetic wounds are treated when they are presumed to be the result of a biofilm infection.  The biofilm must be physically removed—often more than once over the course of treatment—so that applied medicines can take effect.  Treating chronic wounds as biofilms in this fashion has in some cases led to dramatic improvement in wound healing.
