Silver Nanoparticles Beat Bone Cancer Cells in Studies
by Steve Barwick, author, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual
According to an article on the Cancer Defeated website, a recent clinical study conducted in Iran demonstrated that silver is toxic to bone cancer cells:
“Scientists from Iran tested nanosilver on a cell line of bone cancer and found ‘concentration-dependent toxicity…’ (Toxic, that is, to the cancer cells.)
The scientists wrote:
‘Many attempts have been made to use silver nanoparticles as an anti-cancer agent and they have all turned up positive. The role of silver nanoparticles as an anti-cancer agent should open new doors in the field of medicine.
‘In general, silver nanoparticles should serve as one of the best ways of treating diseases that involve cell proliferation and cell death.’
In the most recent study, published in Scientific Reports in July, 2017, silver nanoparticles were coated with albumin protein. This proved to be three to five times more effective at carrying silver into cancer cells than non-coated particles, yet still not toxic enough to kill healthy cells.
The researchers concluded that albumin coated silver nanoparticles “should be considered as an effective anticancer agent.”
That’s wonderful news, of course. And it made me curious. So I decided to see if I could find any other studies demonstrating the effectiveness of silver against bone cancer cells. And sure enough, I did.
Another Study with Similar Results
In a study titled “Toxicity of Nanosilver on Osteoblast Cancerous Cell Line,” published in the journal International Nano Letters (January 2011), nanosilver exhibited “broad spectrum inhibition” against the cancer cell line studied.
The authors of the study state:
“Many attempts have been made to use silver nanoparticles as an anti-cancer agent and they have all turned up positive.
…The purpose of this study was to assess the biological assay of nanosilver (Nanocid®) on osteoblast (G292) cancerous cell line.
The effect of nanosilver on these cells was evaluated by light microscopy, and by cell proliferation and standard cytotoxicity assays.
The results demonstrate a concentration-dependent toxicity for the cell tested, and IC50 was determined 3.42 µg/mL, suggest(ing) that the product is more toxic to cancerous cells compared to other metal ions.”
The term “Osteoblast cancerous cell line” means a bone cancer cell line. And the study demonstrated that 3.42 ppm nanosilver was necessary in order to cause 50% of the bone cancer cells to die.
The study further demonstrated that higher concentrations of nanosilver caused an even greater percentage of cell death.
The authors concluded, “In general, silver nanoparticles should serve as one of the best ways of treating diseases that involve cell proliferation and cell death.”
One More Study
Finally, in a 2017 clinical study published in the BioMedical Journal of Scientific & Technical Research, titled “Anti- Metastatic Properties of Bio Synthesized Ag NPs on Osteosarcoma (MG-63) Cancer Cell Lines,” researchers from Bharath University in India also confirmed that silver nanoparticles are effective against bone cancer cells.
In the study Abstract, the researchers wrote:
“…the antimetastic properties of Ag Nano-particles were studied on Osteosarcoma cancer cell lines. The application of Ag Nano-particles to Osteosarcoma cancer cell lines produces anticancer activity…”
The researchers had produced these silver nanoparticles using a “green” method, meaning that rather than using harsh chemicals they used a natural plant extract known as Tridax procumbens, a member of the Daisy family of plants.
In the Results and Discussion section of the study, they further wrote:
“The silver nano-particles produced by using Tridax procumbens inhibited the growth of cancererous cells.”
According to a chart provided in the study, a concentration of only one one-hundredth of a single ppm of nanosilver — an infinitesimally small amount of silver — reduced the viability of the bone cancer cells by about 50%.
Oddly, at a concentration of only one-tenth ppm the cell viability was reduced by only 35%. But when we jump to 1 ppm, cell viability was reduced by about 72%.
Finally, at 10 ppm concentration of silver nanoparticles, cell viability was reduced by about 78%. And at 100 ppm concentration, the viability of the cancer cells was reduced by more than 83%.
Finally, in the Conclusion and Future Scope section of the study, the researchers concluded:
“The Ag NPs [silver nanoparticles] show significant anti-metastatic effects on cancer cell lines. The use of nano-particles in cancer treatment is increasingly gaining interest and currently vast amount of research is being performed on the possible applications of nano-particles in the medical field.”
In other words, put simply, the silver nanoparticles stopped the bone cancer cells from spreading. And the researchers feel their work adds to the growing body of studies demonstrating that silver kills cancer cells.
