Silver Nanoparticles, Pharmacokinetic, and Pharmacodynamics, quality optimization approach, therapeutic application


In recent years, nanoparticles of noble metals like gold, Palladium, and Silver have drawn immense attention due to the wide range of new applications in pharmaceutical fields as well as other industries. Silver nanoparticles are one of the most beneficial forms of metals in nanotechnology applications. Silver nanoparticles are used in a wide variety of products, including consumer goods, healthcare, catalysts, electronics, and analytical equipment. Silver has a lot of potential in a variety of biological/chemical applications, particularly in the form of nanoparticles (NPs). Silver nanoparticles have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and wound-healing activity. The major focus of silver nanoparticles on anti-inflammatory anti-cancer and anti-bacterial capabilities in this review article. We also discuss the properties of AgNPs and methods for their characterization, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics. More importantly, we extensively discuss the multifunctional bio-applications of AgNPs; for example, as antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-angiogenic, and anti-cancer agents, and the mechanism of the anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammatory activity and anti-bacterial activity of AgNPs. In addition, we discuss therapeutic approaches and challenges for cancer therapy using AgNPs. Finally, we conclude by discussing the future perspective of AgNPs.

The results show that, depending on a variety of circumstances, silver nanoparticles have varying degrees of anti-inflammatory anti-cancer and anti-bacterial impact. The usage of anti-inflammatory supplements serves as evidence that silver supplements are being used.
