This retrospective study of silver-based therapeutics briefly reviews their history, and then explores the modern application of charged silver particles, especially as an antiviral agent. The recent outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) suggests this is timely. Medical literature shows that a variety of viruses have been successfully treated with silverbased drugs. However, ‘silver salts’ and/or inferior silver preparations lack the bio-availability, active silver content and… CONTINUE READING
