the biofilm form

In the biofilm form, bacteria are more resistant to various antimicrobial treatments. Bacteria in a biofilm can also survive harsh conditions and withstand the host’s immune system. Therefore, there is a need for new treatment options to treat biofilm-associated infections. Currently, research is focused on the development of antibiofilm agents that are nontoxic, as it is believed that such molecules will not lead to future drug resistance. Can you please research and provide at least 2 antibiofilm agents and discuss their actions/targets and the impact(s) to human or domestic animals, if any?
