Abstract

The use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has been increasing on a global scale particularly in the fields of textiles, technology, health, and food because of their remarkable features.[1, 2] Among these, the health sector has been predicted to show a significant consumption of AgNPs. AgNPs were demonstrated to show antibacterial properties against various bacteria and also to be able to show antiviral properties, especially against the HIV-1 virus.[3] In addition, AgNPs have anti-inflammatory activity, and have been tested on animals and humans. They can also be used in
