A Green, Simple and Facile Way to Synthesize Silver Nanoparticles Using Soluble Starch. pH Studies and Antimicrobial Applications
TLDR
The synthesis of colloidal silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs by ultrasonic disruption), using soluble starch as a reducing agent and further as a stabilizing agent for produced Ag-NPS is carried out, to confirm the antimicrobial effect of prepared Ag-nPs against several bacterial strains and conclude that the prepared Ag -NPs can represent an alternative or auxiliary material used for controlling important nosocomial pathogens.
A comparative study of chemically synthesized and Camellia sinensis leaf extract-mediated silver nanoparticles
TLDR
This study proves that the AgNPs show potent antimicrobial activity against pathogenic bacteria and confirmed that green-synthesizedAgNPs are eco-friendly and non-toxic.
Antibacterial and Anti-Inflammatory Coating Materials for Orthopedic Implants: A Review
TLDR
This review aims to summarize the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory substances that can be used as coating materials in orthopedic implants and to provide a reference for the prevention and treatment of implant failure caused by implant-related infection and excessive inflammation.
Phyto‐fabricated silver nanoparticles inducing microbial cell death via reactive oxygen species‐mediated membrane damage
TLDR
Eco‐friendly synthesis of the silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has a number of advantages like simplicity, biocompatibility, low toxicity in nature over their physical and chemical methods, and mechanistic studies show that the synthesized AgNPs are capable of containing a potential application in the antimicrobial therapeutic agents and the pharmaceutical industry.
BIOSYNTHESIS OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES USING BIOMASS OF CLADOSPORIUM CLADOSPORIOIDES AND ANTIFUNGAL ACTIVITY AGAINST PATHOGENIC FUNGI CAUSING ONYCHOMYCOSIS
TLDR
The results showed that all Trichophyton spp, mold isolates and some species of yeast were susceptible to AgNPs and the inhibition rate increases with the increase of concentration, and the evolution of antifungal against pathogenic fungi causing onychomycosis.
The Pros and Cons of the Use of Laser Ablation Synthesis for the Production of Silver Nano-Antimicrobials
TLDR
This work reports on AgNPs produced by laser ablation synthesis in solution (LASiS), discussing the major features of this approach and the pros and cons of the use of laser Ablation synthesis for the production of Ag antimicrobial colloids, taking into account applications in the food packaging field.

Silver Nanoparticles as Potential Antibacterial Agents
TLDR
This review aims to summarize the emerging efforts to address current challenges and solutions in the treatment of infectious diseases, particularly the use of nanosilver antimicrobials.
Nanosilver-based antibacterial drugs and devices: mechanisms, methodological drawbacks, and guidelines.
TLDR
This review analyzes the experimental data on the bactericidal effects of AgNPs, discussing the complex scenario and presenting the potential drawbacks and limitations in the techniques and methods employed, and proposes some general guidelines for the design of antibacterial nanosystems and devices based on nanosilver.
Bacteriagenic silver nanoparticles: synthesis, mechanism, and applications
TLDR
Bacterial synthesis of extra- and intracellular AgNPs has been reported using biomass, supernatant, cell-free extract, and derived components, and the extracellular mode of synthesis is preferred over the intrACEllular mode owing to easy recovery of nanoparticles.
The bactericidal effect of silver nanoparticles
TLDR
The results indicate that the bactericidal properties of the nanoparticles are size dependent, since the only nanoparticles that present a direct interaction with the bacteria preferentially have a diameter of approximately 1-10 nm.
Effect of silver nanoparticles on human primary keratinocytes
TLDR
It is observed that AgNPs decrease keratinocyte viability, metabolism and also proliferatory and migratory potential of these cells, and longer exposure resulted in activation of caspase 3/7 and DNA damage.
Combined efficacy of biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles and different antibiotics against multidrug-resistant bacteria
TLDR
Overall, the synergistic effect of antibiotics and nanoparticles resulted in a 0.2–7.0 fold-area increase in antibacterial activity, which clearly revealed that nanoparticles can be effectively used in combination with antibiotics in order to improve their efficacy against various pathogenic microbes.
