How Silver Works Against Viruses

Viruses were “discovered” by a succession of scientists in the late 19th century. They are very small, in fact, about 100 times smaller than bacteria and can only be seen by the human eye under an electron microscope. They are measured in terms of nanometers.

Interaction of silver nanoparticles with HIV-1

Journal of Nanobiotechnology 2005, 3:6 Abstract The interaction of nanoparticles with biomolecules and microorganisms is an expanding field of research. Within this field, an area that has been largely unexplored is the interaction of metal nanoparticles with viruses. In this work, we demonstrate that silver nanoparticles undergo a size-dependent interaction with HIV-1, with nanoparticles exclusively …
