Cytotoxicity of Gold, Silver and Copper Nanoparticles and Their Applications
Objective: In order to summarize the advance of study on cytotoxicity and application of the metal nano- particles, the typical representative: gold, silver, copper. Method: The national and international literatures looked up in recent years were analyzed. Results and Conclusions: Metal nanoparticles have proved to be a potential in anti-cancer. But they are still needed to be further understood and optimized with their powerful characteristics, so that they could be used more effectively in treatment strategies in the fight against cancer with a wide range of clinical applications.
