Abstract

Introduction: Biofilm production and as well as many virulence genes play an active role in the development of antibiotic resistance in A. baumannii. In this study, it was aimed to investigate biofilm production in multidrug-resistant A. baumannii isolates obtained from patients diagnosed with infection and the presence of the virulence genes (csuE and ompA) thought to play a role in biofilm production.
