Abstract

Medical device-related infections are a major problem in hospital. The risk of developing an infection is linked to the bacterial adhesion ability of pathogen strains on the device and their ability to form a biofilm. Here we focused on polymer surfaces exhibiting a blooming of antioxidant (Irganox 3114® and Irganox 1076®) on their surface. We tried to put into evidence the effect of such a phenomenon on the bacterial adhesion in terms of number of viable cultivable bacteria and bacteria localization on the surface. We showed that the blooming has a tendency to increase the Staphylococcus aureus adhesion phenomenon in part for topographic reasons.
