  • Biofilm Formation by Moraxella Catarrhalis 

    Pearson, Melanie Michelle (2004-05-04)
    This is the first detailed study of biofilm formation in vitro by the Gram-negative bacterial pathogen Moraxella catarrhalis. Growth of M. catarrhalis in a continuous-culture biofilm system resulted in little detectable ...

    Haemophilus ducreyi, the etiologic agent of the sexually transmitted disease chancroid, has been shown to inhibit phagocytosis of both itself and secondary targets in vitro. This inhibitory activity was previously shown ...
  • The USPA2 Protein and Serum Resistance of Moraxella Catarrhalis
