Electrically Conductive Bacterial Nanowires In Bisphosphonate-related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw Biofilms.
Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Oral Radiology. 2013 Jan 01; 115: 71-8.
Bacterial biofilms play a role in the pathogenesis of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ). The purpose of this preliminary study was to test the hypothesis that the extracellular filaments observed in biofilms associated with BRONJ contain electrically conductive nanowires.
