Abstract:


Production of particles and their adaptation in the pharmacology became an object of interest and there are currently introduced therapies based on the use of micro and nanoparticles. The use of gold particles is not an exception. This review is focused on the application of gold micro and nanoparticles in the pharmacology and biomedicine. Their use in the therapy and diagnosis respective theranostic of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, antimicrobial means, drugs distribution and other are discussed. Beside these applications, specifications of gold, gold particles and colloidal gold manufacturing and their comparation with the solid gold are described as well. This review is based on survey of actual scientific literature.
