Small Silver Nanoparticles: A Multi-Functional Novel Delivery Vehicle For Therapeutics
Small silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been increasingly studied as a promising drug delivery platform due to their unique properties, including high surface area, high reactivity, and tunable surface chemistry. In this article, we review recent advances in the use of small AgNPs as a drug delivery vehicle. We discuss the benefits of AgNPs for targeted drug delivery, controlled drug release, and enhanced bioavailability, as well as their potential for use in photothermal therapy, immunotherapy, and gene delivery. We also review the challenges and potential safety concerns associated with the use of AgNPs in drug delivery, and discuss future research directions in this field. Overall, small AgNPs represent a promising platform for the development of novel drug delivery systems with enhanced efficacy and reduced side effects. Silver nanoparticles have gained increasing attention in the field of drug delivery due to their unique physical and chemical properties. These nanoparticles can be used as a carrier for drugs, allowing for targeted delivery and improved therapeutic efficacy. In this review, we will discuss the potential of silver nanoparticles in drug delivery and their current applications.
