Done in 1980..why would that be? We are talking about the articel I can not access right? Why if done in 1980..@25 years ago.......re: Tam post, would that be? Did I understand you correctly?

The link that you cite indicates that there are 3 promising chemicals-
that prevent bacterial colonisation. "These chemicals are members of a
family of compounds known as furanones that block the receptors for a
class of molecules that affect quorum-sensing. They seem to be non-toxic in the mammalian body and are relatively
stable; moreover, they seem to prevent the formation of Pseudomonas
aeruginosa biofilms in the lungs of mice with cystic fibrosis. Promising news is also emerging from studies of a family of
small peptides that have a role in the proliferation of biofilms of
MRSA; certain derivativescan prevent biofilms forming. A third type of molecule, the only known organic compound of the
element boron that exists in the living world, furanosyl borate
diester, is a recentlydiscovered quorum-sensing chemical. This substance, unlike otherquorum-sensing chemicals,
affects many bacterial species and suggests that it may be possible to
find an agent that blocks biofilm formation.
What are your thoughts on Boron? Borates?
Thanks in advance.
c3, thanks for this article
It was simple and understandable
skytol,thanx for the cute pic!
hello to all
