  • Patent number: 10653140
    Abstract: One aspect of the present invention is directed to a composition. The composition includes a dispersion inducer comprising: H3C—(CH2)n—CHmCHmR, where is a single or double carbon-carbon bond, m is 1 or 2, n is 2 to 15, and R is a carboxylic acid, a salt, an ester, or an amide, where the ester or amide is an isostere or biostere of the carboxylic acid. The composition additionally contains an additive component selected from one or more of the group consisting of biocides, surfactants, antibiotics, antiseptics, detergents, chelating agents, virulence factor inhibitors, gels, polymers, pastes, edible products, and chewable products. The composition is formulated so that when it is contacted with a biofilm produced by a microorganism, where the biofilm comprises a matrix and microorganism on a surface, the dispersion inducer selectively acts on the microorganism and has a suitable biological response without a required direct effect on the matrix to disperse the biofilm.
