Silver Nanoparticles Decrease Body Weight and Locomotor Activity in Adult Male Rats.

Zhang Y, Ferguson SA, Watanabe F, Jones Y, Xu Y, Biris AS, Hussain S, Ali SF


Silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) are widely used in FDA regulated products. The physical-chemical properties of Ag-NPs are characterized using various instruments. The dose-dependent activity and body weight alterations are evaluated after rats were exposed to Ag nanoparticles, suggesting a major human health risk, given the wide application of silver nanomaterials.
