Inhibition of Acinetobacter baumanniibiofilm formation on a methacrylate polymer containing a 2-aminoimidazole subunit

Author affiliations

Abstract

A polymeric composite containing a 2-aminoimidazole derivative was synthesized. It was found that this polymer was resistant to biofilm colonization by Acinetobacter baumannii, no leaching of the 2-aminoimidazole derivative was observed after 2 weeks of treatment with deionized water, and the resulting polymer was not hemolytic.
