Silver on Sepsis

Silver on Sepsis

Van Amber Brown 1915

“In this study we see, in vivo as in vitro, that this colloidal silver possesses the requirements demanded in a
chemical general antiseptic.”

Silver Antifungal Properties

Silver Antifungal Properties

Berger et. al. 1976

“The study demonstrated that anodic silver (Ag+) at 3 PPM concentration have inhibitory and fungicidal properties.
Broth dilution susceptibility tests were made on several species of Candida and one species of Torulopsis. Growth in all
isolates was inhibited by concentrations of electrically generated silver ions between 0.5 and 4.7 mg/ml, and silver
exhibited fungicidal properties at concentrations as low as 1.9 ,ug/ml. The inhibitory and fungicidal concentrations of
electrically generated silver ions are lower than those reported for other silver compounds.”

Silver Efficacy in Wound Healing

Silver Efficacy in Wound Healing

Iroha et. al. 2007

“Colloidal silver at 5 ppm concentration has proven to be effective on ten clinical bacterial isolates comprising
five isolates of Escherichia coli isolated from surgical wound patients at the Federal Medical Centre, Abakaliki
and five isolates of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from the wound sites of burnt patients at the University of
Nigeria Teaching Hospital. Also, interaction studies between colloidal silver and some conventional antibiotics
were carried out showing that the test organisms were sensitive to the colloidal silver at both alone and with
antibiotics and the silver showed no antagonism to the antibiotic drug.”

How Silver act on Bacteria as E. coli

How Silver act on Bacteria as E. coli

Li et. al. 2010

“After being exposed to silver, the bacteria membrane vesicles were dissolved and dispersed, and their membrane
components became disorganized and scattered from their original ordered. In conclusion, the combined results
suggested that silver ions may damage the structure of bacterial cell membrane and depress the activity of some
membranous enzymes, which cause E. coli bacteria to die eventually.”

Silver Stem Cell Dedifferentiation

Silver Stem Cell Dedifferentiation

Becker et. al. 2002

“Free silver ions put into human wounds besides their antibacterial effect in clinical use as an addition has proven to have dedifferentiation of mature cells into progentitor stems cells producing a regeneration of local tissue of the skin.”

Silver on S. aureus, E. coli, P. aregnosa, S. typhi

Assar et. al 2010

“The study conclude and show a successful formation of Colloidal Silver through its antibacterial activity on
S. aureus, E. coli, P. aregnosa and S. typhi.

Silver on P. aeruginosa Wound Infection

Silver on P. aeruginosa Wound Infection

Iroha et. al 2008

“Colloidal silver concentrate have an antibacterial activity against pathogenic P. aeruginosa and the
killing rate kinetics studies reveal that the test organisms were completely killed within 90 min.
Further exploitation of colloidal silver for the treatment of multi-drug resistant P. aeruginosa
infections is hereby suggested.”

Silver on Multidrug-resistant Bacteria

Silver on Multidrug-resistant Bacteria

Humberto et. al 2009

“Silver nanoparticles are effective broad-spectrum biocides against a variety of drug-resistant bacteria,
which makes them a potential candidate for use in pharmaceutical products and medical devices that may help
to prevent the transmission of drug-resistant pathogens in different clinical environments.”

Silver Ion in S. aureus and E. coli

Silver Ion in S. aureus and E. coli

Jung et. al. 2008

“Transmission electron microscopy showed considerable changes in the bacterial cell membranes upon silver ion treatment,
which might be the cause or consequence of the bacterial death. In conclusion, the results of the present study suggest
that silver ions may cause S. aureus and E. coli bacteria to reach an ABNC state and eventually die.”

Silver Stem Cell Wound Healing

Silver Stem Cell Wound Healing

Becker et. al. 2000

“A significant stimulation in open wounds have been noticed using silver for infection prevention where
local tissue regeneration was noted due to dedifferentiation of mature cells or stimulation of stem cells
in the wound, resulting in the production of large numbers of progenitor cells.”
