While it is known that silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) can enter the brain, our knowledge of AgNP-induced neurotoxicity remains incomplete. We investigated the ability of 10 nm citrate-stabilized AgNPs to generate oxidative stress in brain and liver of adult male Wistar rats after repeated oral exposure for 14 days, using a low dose of 0.2 mg/kg b.w. as(More)
Neurotoxicity of silver nanoparticles has been confirmed in both in vitro and in vivo studies. However, the mechanisms of the toxic action have not been fully clarified. Since nanoparticles are likely to have the ability to enter the brain and significantly accumulate in this organ, it is important to investigate their neurotoxic mechanisms. Here we examine(More)
Over the last decade, silver nanoparticles have become an important class of nanomaterials utilized in the development of new nanotechnologies. Despite the fact that nanosilver is used in many commercial applications, our knowledge about its associated risks is incomplete. Although a number of studies have been undertaken to better understand the impact of(More)
Nanoscale particles have large surface to volume ratio that significantly enhances their chemical and biological reactivity. Although general toxicity of nano silver (nanoAg) has been intensively studied in both in vitro and in vivo models, its neurotoxic effects are poorly known, especially those of low-dose exposure. In the present study we assess whether(More)
