100. Direct detection of bacterial biofilms on the middle-ear mucosa of children with chronic otitis media.

Direct detection of bacterial biofilms on the middle-ear mucosa of children with chronic otitis media. CONTEXT: Chronic otitis media (OM) is a common pediatric infectious disease. Previous studies demonstrating that metabolically active bacteria exist in culture-negative pediatric middle-ear effusions and that experimental infection with Haemophilus influenzae in the chinchilla model of otitis media results in the formation of adherent mucosal biofilms suggest that chronic OM may result from (...) a mucosal biofilm infection. OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that chronic OM in humans is biofilm-related. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: Middle-ear mucosa (MEM) biopsy specimens were obtained from 26 children (mean age, 2.5 [range, 0.5-14] years) undergoing tympanostomy tube placement for treatment of otitis media with effusion (OME) and recurrent OM and were analyzed using microbiological culture, polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based diagnostics, direct microscopic examination, fluorescence in situ
