Abstract: Silver NPs are substantially more effective than silver ions, enhanced antibacterial properties of silver NPs being demonstrated both in vitro and in vivo.

For these reasons, in this study we investigated the antimicrobial effects of low concentrations of Ag NPs against representative microorganisms of public health concern. Here, we report that different Ag NPs sizes and concentrations can be applied effectively in the control of microorganisms and the prevention of deleterious infections.
Summary: Due to the outbreak of the infectious diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) have emerged up as novel antimicrobial agents.Report abuse »
