Topical Application of Silver Nanoparticles and Oral Pathogens in Ill Patients

The purpose of this study is to determine whether oral topic silver nanoparticles are effective to reduce potential pathogen microbial loads in mechanical ventilation patients.

Silver Nanoparticle Investigation for Treating Chronic Sinusitis

Chronic rhinosinusitis is a highly prevalent disease resulting in high economic burden. Effective therapeutic options are needed. Rhinosinusitis-related biofilms are a likely contributor t...

Comparison of Central Venous Catheters With Silver Nanoparticles Versus Conventional Catheters

Bloodstream infections are common in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). The need of a central venous line increases the risk of bacteremia and central venous catheter (CVC) related infections. T...

Topical Collagen-Silver Versus Standard Care Following Removal of Ingrown Nails

This study's purpose is to prospectively determine whether topical therapy with an oxidized regenerated cellulose collagen-silver compound is more effective than the current standard of to...

Standard Treatment Associated With Phage Therapy Versus Placebo for Diabetic Foot Ulcers Infected by S. Aureus

The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of standard treatment associated with a topical anti-staphylococcal bacteriophage cocktail versus standard treatment plus pla...

Zwitterion-Ag complexes that simultaneously enhance biofouling resistance and silver binding capability of thin film composite membranes.

Biofouling can be overcome with zwitterion grafts and anti-microbial, metallic nanoparticles. However, the mechanism underpinning this effective approach remains unclear. To elucidate the role of each...

Effective Topical Delivery of H-AgNPs for Eradication of Klebsiella pneumoniae-Induced Burn Wound Infection.

The aim of the present study was to explore the therapeutic efficacy of microemulsion-based delivery of histidine-capped silver nanoparticles in eradicating Klebsiella pneumoniae-induced burn wound in...

Study of Bacillus subtilis response to different forms of silver.

Although silver nanoparticles are the most widespread product of nanotechnology, the mechanisms underlying AgNP microbial toxicity remain the subject of intense debate. In this study, Bacillus subtili...

Cellular apoptosis of HFF cells by inorganic nanoparticles not susceptible to modulation by Toxoplasma gondii infection in vitro.

The interaction of nanoparticles with living cells is becoming one of the urgent areas of collaborative research in materials science and biology. Previously, we showed that nanoparticles have promisi...

Green synthesis of silver nanoparticles using Nardostachys jatamansi and evaluation of its anti-biofilm effect against classical colonizers.

In this communication, we present the green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using medicinally important Nardostachys jatamansi rhizome extract in the presence of sunlight. UV-vis spectroscop...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Compounds of silver and proteins used as topical anti-infective agents.

Nanoparticles produced from metals whose uses include biosensors, optics, and catalysts. In biomedical applications the particles frequently involve the noble metals, especially gold and silver.

Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.

The use of silver, usually silver nitrate, as a reagent for producing contrast or coloration in tissue specimens.

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
