Metabolomic investigation of rat urine was employed to identify metabolites affected after oral administration of ionic or nanoparticulate silver. By high-performance liquid chromatography time-of-flight mass spectrometry, an increase in uric acid and its degradation product, allantoin, were identified. Verification was done by co-elution with authentic standards. The results suggest that silver affects purine metabolism.
