Promising Cure to URTI Pandemics Including H5N1 and SARS
(Part I) (Part II)
Recently Rentz (2003) published a convincing retrospective, peer-reviewed treatise on a highly advanced, effective and safe virotoxic oligodynamic silver (Ag+) hydrosol, making the case that it is the agent of choice to combat SARS. The works of Goetz (1940), Berger et al (1976), Simonetti et al (1992), Russel et al (1994), and Crocker and Grier (1998) collectively established that electrolytically produced oligodynamic Ag+ hydrosol provides the ideal speciation of bioactive Ag+ completely harmless to mammals in contrast to other colloidal silver or silver salt speciations that are predominantly inactive and potentially toxic to mammals. They also established that oligodynamic Ag+ hydrosol possesses fabulous virotoxic properties. Comprehensive studies conducted by NASA (circa 1970) on a crude oligodynamic Ag+ hydrosol preparation offer a compelling argument that today’s highly advanced oligodynamic Ag+ hydrosols may be the solution to lessening the impact of viral plagues.
Modern nanoscience is still making new discoveries regarding oligodynamic metals. Nanoscientists appear positioned to develop some of the most complicated strategies for fighting cancer. For example, they are discovering that cancer drugs must be able to easily disrupt and penetrate tumor cell membranes in situ to enable the fullest possible oncolytic effects. Picoscalar or near-picoscalar oligodynamic Ag+ hydrosol enjoys the greatest surface presentation (i.e., ~ 6 km2 per gram Ag), for tumor cell membrane adherence and penetration, leading to greater oncolytic effects.
