Role of Burkholderia pseudomallei biofilm formation and lipopolysaccharide in relapse of melioidosis.

Abstract:

We examined whether quantitative biofilm formation and/or lipopolysaccharide type of Burkholderia pseudomallei was associated with relapsing melioidosis. We devised a 1:4 nested case-control study in which both cases and controls were drawn from a cohort of patients with primary melioidosis.
