Bacteria-killing graphene flakes may keep implants from being rejected

Also importantly, bacteria aren’t able to develop a resistance to the graphene, plus the spikes don’t harm human cells, as an individual cell is much larger than an individual bacterium – 25 micrometers in diameter, as opposed to just one. And as an added benefit, the structure of the graphene should help with osseointegration, which is the process by which the body’s adjacent bone structure grows to attach to an implant.
