Section: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Journal
Language: Ukrainian
Abstract: The article summarizes the results of studies on the pharmacological, toxicological and specific properties of nanometals (silver, iron, copper). It is established that nanoparticles of silver, copper, iron exhibit antimicrobial action. Acute toxicity of nanometals depends on their nature, administration route and animal sex. Effects on heart activity and hemodynamic status as well as erythrocyte osmotic fragility have dose-dependent nature.
Key words: nanoparticles, nanosilver, nanocopper, nanoiron, properties.
