The many benefits of Silver Ions are well documented and are freely available online. Read the articles below to find out more.
Dengue is a disease caused by four closely related viruses known as dengue virus -1 through -4 (DENV1-DENV4). DF is a disease that became prevalent in tropics during the great shipping industry expansion in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The zombie apocalypse may be more than just a horror story for some bacteria. New research shows that when exposed to a microbe-slaying silver solution, the germs can “go zombie,” wiping out their living compatriots even after death. The results may explain silver's long-lasting antibacterial power and could improve the performance of medical products that keep us safe from harmful pathogens.
The Effect of Charge at the Surface of Silver Nanoparticles on Antimicrobial Activity against Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria: A Preliminary Study
Nanoparticles are known as particles with a size smaller than 100 nm. By reducing the particle size from the micrometre to the nanometre scale, almost all the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the materials (e.g., hardness, active surface area, and antibacterial activity) will be altered.
Silver has a long and intriguing history as an antibiotic in human health care. It has been developed for use in water purification, wound care, bone prostheses, reconstructive orthopaedic surgery, cardiac devices, catheters and surgical appliances. Advancing biotechnology has enabled incorporation of ionizable silver into fabrics for clinical use to reduce the risk of nosocomial infections and for personal hygiene.
A new technology of microdispersed silver in polyurethane induces antimicrobial activity in central venous catheters
Metal ions or metal ions in complexes or compounds have been used for centuries to disinfect fluids, solids and tissues. The biocidal effect of silver, with its broad spectrum of activity including bacterial, fungal and viral agents, is particularly well known and the term “oligodynamic activity” was coined for this phenomenon.
