Abstract:

Novel studies and technologies are devoted to understanding the mechanisms of disease for the design of new drugs, but unfortunately infectious diseases continue to be a major health burden worldwide. Multi-drug resistance is a growing problem in the treatment of infectious diseases and the widespread use of broad-spectrum antibiotics has produced antibiotic resistance for many human bacterial pathogens. Advances in nanotechnology have opened new horizons in nanomedicine, allowing the synthesis of nanoparticles that can be assembled into complex architectures. Since ancient times, metal was known for its anti-bacterial effects and for centuries it has been used for prevention and control of disparate infections. Currently nanotechnology and nanomaterials are fully integrated in common applications and objects that we use every day. In addition, the metal nanoparticles are attracting much interest because of their potent antibacterial activity. Bacterial strains that are resistant to current antibiotics have become serious public health problems that increase the need to develop new bactericidal materials. Therefore, nanoparticles have gained importance in the field of chemotherapy.
