Abstract

With the current rise in antimicrobial resistance and infections resulting in high mortality and morbidity. There is need for novel strategies to combat these challenges such as nanoparticle technology has offered excellent opportunities. The use of metal nanoparticles such as silver with well-established antimicrobial activity conjugated with other antimicrobials has the potential to overcome the challenge of drug resistance due to its multiple mechanisms of action against microbes. This reveal highlights the characteristics of silver, the antibacterial action of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), the role of nanotechnology in improving antimicrobial activity of silver and studies conducted in relation to the use of silver nanoparticles for purposes of improving antimicrobial therapy.

Keywords: Silver nanoparticles, antibacterial activity, antibiotic therapy, antimicrobial activity, microbes, nanotechnology
