Tian et. al. 2007

“The study investigated the wound-healing properties of silver nanoparticles in an animal model and found
that rapid healing and improved cosmetic appearance occur in a dose-dependent manner. Furthermore, through
quantitative PCR, immunohistochemistry, and proteomic studies, we showed that silver nanoparticles exert
positive effects through their antimicrobial properties, reduction in wound inflammation, and modulation
of fibrogenic cytokines. These results show the actions of silver and have provided a novel therapeutic
direction for wound treatment in clinical practice.”
