Environmental mycobacteria pose a significant health burden. Non-tuberculous mycobacteria infections have been traced to water treatment networks, where mycobacterial biofilms are ubiquitous. Filters that remove potential pathogens have significant medical applications. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that an antibacterial silver nanoparticle… CONTINUE READING
