Abstract :

Ag-NPs meet the global demand for opening new doors to the development of antibacterial strategies in contrast to the increasing prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Ag-NPs are ideal candidates for the emerging problems of resistance due to their excellent physio-chemical characteristics and targeted drug delivery system. They have been proven efficient in treating various types of bacterial infections in humans and animals. This article presents the use of Ag-NPs as antibacterial substances, their mechanism of action, and medical applications for the control of bacterial diseases.
