<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title> <jats:p> Silver-containing phosphate-based glasses were found to reduce the growth of <jats:italic>Pseudomonas aeruginosa</jats:italic> and <jats:italic>Staphylococcus aureus</jats:italic> biofilms, which are leading causes of nosocomial infections. The rates of glass degradation (1.27 to 1.41 μg·mm <jats:sup>−2</jats:sup> ·h <jats:sup>−1</jats:sup> ) and the corresponding silver release were found to account for the variation in biofilm growth inhibitory effect. </jats:p>
