Nano World: Nano silver fights infections

Abstract:
Charles Q. Choi: Silver nanoparticles could help fight hospital-related infections that afflict 2 million patients and lead to 90,000 deaths in the United States each year, experts told UPI's Nano World.

These anti-microbial nanoparticle coatings could have a dramatic impact on the roughly $160 billion global medical-device market, said Bruce Gibbins, founder of, and lead researcher and chief technology officer for AcryMed, a device maker in Portland, Ore.
