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. Each nanometer is one billionth of a meter. Viruses are …

Silver nanoparticles inhibit hepatitis B virus replication

Abstract BACKGROUND: Silver nano-particles have been shown to exhibit promising cytoprotective activities towards HIV-infected T-cells; however, the effects of these nano-particles towards other kinds of viruses remain largely unexplored. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of silver nano-particles on hepatitis B virus (HBV). METHODS: Monodisperse silver nano-particles with mean particle …
