Abstract

Noble metals and their compounds have a long and distinguished history as therapeutic agents in medicine. Recent years have seen tremendous progress in the design and study of nonmaterial’s geared towards biomedical applications. Gold nanoparticles particularly have attracted intensive interest, because they are easily prepared, have low toxicity and can be readily attached to molecules of biomedical interest. The gold nanoparticles have become more precious than pretty gold because of their wide use and applications. The present mini review article gave a critical view of the biomedical uses of gold nanoparticles in diagnostics, medicine and surgery.
