Chronic wounds are characterized by their inability to heal within a specific time frame and have emerged as an increasingly important clinical issue over the past several decades. These wounds are usually colonized with microbial strains in a poly-microbial biofilm and show high antibiotic resistance to several antibiotics. Thus, it is important to explore the antimicrobial activity of new compounds that can affect multi drug resistant pathogens in chronic wounds.

In this article, the authors tested the antimicrobial and anti-virulence effects of Capparis spinose aqueous extract against the main chronic wound pathogens, both single and combined strains in the Lubbock chronic wound biofilm (LCWB) model.
