Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have tremendous potentials in medical devices due to their excellent antimicrobial properties. Blood compatibility should be investigated for AgNPs due to the potential blood contact. However, so far, most studies are not systematic and have not provided insights into the mechanisms for blood compatibility of AgNPs. In this study, we have investigated the blood biological effects, including hemolysis, lymphocyte proliferation, platelet aggregation, coagulation and… 
Effect of differently coated silver nanoparticles on hemostasis
Evaluated silver nanoparticles effects on hemostasis in human blood demonstrate that a combination of different techniques should be used for reliable assessment of AgNPs hemostatic effects highlighting the need for a standardized approach in sampling and experimental protocols.

The in Vitro Effect of Polyvinylpyrrolidone and Citrate Coated Silver Nanoparticles on Erythrocytic Oxidative Damage and Eryptosis
Both PVP- and CT- AgNPs causes hemolysis, and are taken up by erythrocytes, and these findings provide evidence for the potential pathophysiological effect of PVP -and CT-AgNPs on ERYthrocyte physiology.


Optimizing hemocompatibility of surfactant-coated silver nanoparticles in human erythrocytes.
In the present study, human erythrocytes were used as an in vitro model to examine the size, dose, and coating surfactant-dependent cytotoxicity of silver nanoparticles and demonstrated that polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) was a more suitable surfactants than polyethylene glycol (PEG) for AgNPs capping.
Physicochemical characterization and in vitro hemolysis evaluation of silver nanoparticles.
Although significant size changes occurred to the silver particles due to interaction with media components, the higher level of in vitro hemolysis observed with nanoparticles compared with micron-sized particles may be related to their greater surface area, increased silver ion release, and direct interaction with RBCs.
