ABSTRACT
As a diagnostic fluid, saliva offers distinctive advantages over serum because individuals with modest training can collect it non-invasively. Saliva may provide a cost-effective approach for the screening of large populations. Gland specific saliva can be used for diagnosis of pathology specific to one of the major salivary glands. Analysis of saliva may be useful for the diagnosis of hereditary disorders, autoimmune diseases, malignant and infectious diseases, and endocrine disorders, as well as in the assessment of therapeutic levels of drugs and the monitoring of illicit drug use.
