The Mechanism of Counteraction to Biofilm Formation of Microorganisms by Microwave Radiation of Natural Origin
N.V. Vdovina, South Ural State University, Chelyabinsk, Russian Federation,
 The article presents the results of the theoretical study of the determination of the mechanism of the counteraction to microbial biofilm formation by using microwave radiation of natural origin. The main physical processes which are the cornerstone of counteraction to biofilm formation are considered when using a model of microwave radiation in the form of continuous sequence of frequency-modulated signals. It is proved that the simulated broadband microwave radiation can block the formation of extracellular matrix by opportunistic pathogens. The results of this study support the hypothesis of the evolutionary nature of the supervisory role of broadband microwave radiation on vital processes of organisms. It opens up the real perspective for decrease of persistent potential of microorganisms and improvement of the effectiveness of bacterial infections treatment.
