Abstract: The in vitro activity of nano-silver versus those of amphotericin B was assessed against 37 plmonary aspergillosis isolates. The activity of nano-silver against Aspergillus spp. is 2 times greater than that of amphotericin B. Nano-silver’s antifungalactivity was superior to hose of amphotericin B against plmonarypathogenic fungi in vitro.
