Modulating the microbiota of the hospital environment by probiotic cleaning: impact on infections and antimicrobial resistance

ELISABETTA CASELLI Targeting Microbiota 2019 v1During the 7th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota scheduled on October 10-11, 2019 at the ParkInn Hotel - Krakow, Poland, the Scientific commitee will dedicate a full session related to the Built Environment Microbiome.

Dr. Elisabetta Caselli from the University of Ferrara, Italy will give a presentation entitled "Modulating the microbiota of the hospital environment by probiotic cleaning: impact on infections and antimicrobial resistance".

Dr. Caselli summarizes: "Healthcare–associated infections (HAIs) are a global concern, whose major causes include the persistent microbial contamination of the hospital environment, and the growing antimicrobial-resistance (AMR) of HAI-associated microbes.

The control of contamination has been so far addressed by the use of chemical-based sanitation procedures, which however do not prevent recontamination and can select resistant microbes.

By contrast, a microbial-based sanitation system, inspired by the microbiome balance principles, was shown to induce remodulation of hospital microbiota, obtaining a stable control of bioburden and AMR, associated to a significant reduction of HAIs."
