Selective Antibiofilm Effects of Lucilia sericata Larvae Secretions/Excretions against Wound Pathogens

Figure 2

Effects of maggot ES, HES at concentration of 10 mg/mL, and proteinase K (PK) at concentration of 10 mg/mL on established biofilms of (a) Staphylococcus aureus, (b) Enterobacter cloacae, and (c) Proteus mirabilis. Biofilms of wound pathogens were grown in Tryptone Soya Broth medium for 7 h in 96-well plate and treated with maggot ES, HES, and proteinase K for additional 24 h. The values of absorbance are mean SEM of three independent assays. The data were statistically analyzed by the Student’s t-test ( ).
