Rama Sharma* and Nancy Srivastava   Pages 1793 - 1801 ( 9 )


Background: Cancer is a widespread fatal disease that is associated with abnormal growth of cells in the body.

Objectives: This article represent, applications of biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles and their mode of action in cancer therapy.

Methods: Nanomedicines have been proved to be an effective therapy in the treatment of the disease because of a wide range of applications. Due to the small shape and size, these nanoparticles are emerging to be of novel importance. They are abundantly found in various resources with easy extraction.

Results: Biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles are safe for humans as well as for the environment. These may replace the use of these harmful therapies like chemotherapy etc. using in cancer treatment because these have severe side effects. Sometimes patient may die because of these side effects.

Conclusion: These green nanoparticles have great potential to treat and diagnose different cancers. This article laid a research opportunity for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
