    The role of C. acnes biofilm production in the pathogenesis of breast implants infections has not been deeply assessed. We analyze biofilm production (in terms of biomass and metabolic activity) between 40 Cutibacterium acnes strains isolated from breast implants and 32 from other sites. C. acnes strains isolated from breast implants showed higher metabolic activity than those isolated from other-locations and, especially, those from patients with capsular contracture.
