Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have emerged as an important class of nanomaterials for a wide range of applications. However, the unique properties of AgNPs could potentially lead to unexpected hazards to human and environmental health. In this study, a number of previous studies are summarized that demonstrate oxidative stress-, genotoxicity- and apoptosis-related changes brought about by AgNPs. The physicochemical properties of AgNPs that are involved in encouraging such changes are also discussed.
