Antibacterial Efficacy of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles
A wide variety of nanotechnological devices for the treatment of infectious diseases have been developed, including microemulsions, vaccines, and metallic- inorganic-lipid- and polymeric-based nanoparticles.
Metallic NPs such as silver (AgNP) and gold (AuNP) show unique and considerably distinct physical, chemical, and biological properties due to their high surface-to-volume ratio, with which surfaces can be modified with ligands containing functional groups, providing an electrostatic or steric stabilization.
Attached below is a 10 page 2017 Research Article published by Hindawi Journal of Nanomaterials on this subject of nanoparticle technology.
It is rather technical but it concludes:
“Currently, an intense investigation in nanotechnology and its applications in infectious or contagious diseases has led to the development of antimicrobial formulations from nanoparticles that act as an effective bactericidal agent. In this study, it was demonstrated that an increase in the antibacterial activity against Gram-negative bacteria appears when silver nanoparticles are capped with the UBI antimicrobial peptide, probably due to the multimeric or polyvalent arrangement of ligands distributed on the nanoparticle surface. Additional studies are required to understand the structure of multivalent nanoparticles and stabilization mechanisms not yet elucidated”.

If YOU want to follow my fight against Cancer from when it started and I first presented with symptoms in 1998 see The TAB at the Header of this Blog. called >DIARY of Cancer ….< just click and it will give you a long list of the main events in chronological order, many linked to specific blog postings. . Later in the sequence of my experiences with cancer you will note that I introduce some results and events most probably linked with cancer such as enlarged & damaged Prostate and a consequential Heart Attack leaving me with no right coronary artery! . I have also included numerous articles and anecdotes regarding health – primarily related to cancer, prostate and heart conditions – FYI! . Thoughts, articles and comments will be in chronological order in the main blog and can be tracked in the >ARCHIVE< in the Left Sidebar. . You may find the TABS >MEDICAL LINKS< and also >CANCER LINKS< of help, also many of the links in articles and >HOT LINKS< in the Sidebar.
YOU are welcome to call me, minded that I am NOT medically trained, if you believe I can help you in ANY way. .
