Abstract: Nanotechnology is on the threshold of providing a host of new materials and approaches, revolutionizing the medical and pharmaceutical fields. Several areas of medical care are already profiting from the advantage that nanotechnology offers. Recently, silver nanoparticles are attracting interest for a clinical application because of its potential biological properties such as antibacterial activity, anti-inflammatory effects, and wound healing efficacy, which could be exploited in developing better dressings f… Show more

“…An over accumulation of ROS can elicit an inflammatory response [5]. Long-term occupational exposure can also lead to argyria, which is the irreversible bluish-grey pigmentation of the skin and even the eyes [5,8]. Despite these relevant toxicological implications, most of the research data that support silver nanoparticle cytotoxicity has been carried out by in vitro experiments.…”
