This paper published by a team of scientists from Holland reviews the known data about the toxicological effects of nanosilver, and attempt to access wheter the toxic effects of these particles were proportional to the activity of free silver ions released by the nanoparticles, in line with the hypnosis that the toxic effects of nanosilver are due to a combination of the specific properties of silver nanoparticles and the generations of ions from them.
