E-mail: kcaimi@cnia.inta.gov.ar ABSTRACT Leptospirosis is a zoonosis of ubiquitous distribution caused by spirochetes.
Leptospires exist either as saprophytic water-associated organisms or as animal pathogens that can survive in water.
Previous works have demonstrated that both saprophytic and pathogenic leptospires are able to produce functional biofilms, which consist of a community of bacteria embedded in an extracellular matrix attached to a surface.
This structure is believed to provide protection from environmental aggressiveness.
In the present study, we analyzed the capacity of biofilm formation both of a a recent field isolate of Leptospira int...
