Colloidal Silver

 

Colloidal silver is a product sometimes touted as a cure for prostatitis,among many other ailments. The United States Food and Drug Administrtion (FDA) does not allow colloidal silver to be sold for this purpose.
FDA Bans Colloidal Silver Products
Cites Lack of Data
Under a rule recently finalized by FDA, drug products containing colloidal silver or silver salts are not recognized as safe and effective. These products, labeled to treat a wide variety of illnesses in adults and children, including AIDS, cancer, syphilis, scarlet fever, shingles, herpes, and pneumonia, have caused some people's skin to take on a permanent blue-gray discoloration.
FDA concluded that colloidal silver products (suspensions of silver particles in a gelatinous base) are misbranded because adequate directions cannot be written to allow consumers to use them safely. These products are also misbranded, FDA said, when their labeling falsely suggests that there is substantial scientific evidence to establish that they are safe and effective for their labeled uses. (See the enforcement action involving colloidal silver in this issue.)
The FDA final rule, which was published in the Aug. 17, 1999 Federal Register and became effective Sept. 16, 1999, requires that any colloidal silver product intended to be used as a drug will have to be approved by FDA under the agency's new drug application procedures before being marketed.
