Special Issue in Diagnostics: Salivary Biomarkers and Their Application to Diagnosis and Monitoring Human Diseases
In recent decades, increasing importance has been given to the study of molecules present in saliva as a tool for the study of several diseases. This is due, first, to the fact that saliva is a fluid that, in addition to having constituents produced by the different salivary glands, contains several molecules transported by the plasma, some of which are present in quantities proportional to their levels in the blood; secondly, saliva sampling has the advantage of being non-invasive, with its collection easily accepted by most individuals. This aspect is particularly advantageous for children, the elderly, and people in whom blood collection is difficult, because it can involve fear and pain. These two points, together with technological and analytical advances, have led to a large amount of research interest in working with this fluid from different perspectives and using molecular biomarkers present in saliva as interesting tools to diagnosis and monitoring human diseases.
