Salivary mucin MG1 is comprised almost entirely of different glycosylated forms of the MUC5B gene product. (1/4630)

The MG1 population of mucins was isolated from human whole salivas by gel chromatography followed by isopycnic density gradient centrifugation. The reduced and alkylated MG1 mucins, separated by anion exchange chromatography, were of similar size (radius of gyration 55-64 nm) and molecular weight (2.5-2.9 x 10(6) Da). Two differently-charged populations of MG1 subunits were observed which showed different reactivity with monoclonal antibodies to glycan epitopes. Monosaccharide and amino acid compositional analyses indicated that the MG1 subunits had similar glycan structures on the same polypeptide. An antiserum recognizing the MUC5B mucin was reactive across the entire distribution, whereas antisera raised against the MUC2 and MUC5AC mucins showed no reactivity. Western blots of agarose gel electrophoresis of fractions across the anion exchange distribution indicated that the polypeptide underlying the mucins was the product of the MUC5B gene. Amino acid analysis and peptide mapping performed on the fragments produced by trypsin digestion of the two MG1 populations yielded data similar to that obtained for MUC5B mucin subunits prepared from respiratory mucus (Thornton et al., 1997) and confirmed that the MUC5B gene product was the predominant mucin polypeptide present. Isolation of the MG1 mucins from the secretions of the individual salivary glands (palatal, sublingual, and submandibular) indicate that the palatal gland is the source of the highly charged population of the MUC5B mucin.  (+info)

Salivary contribution to exhaled nitric oxide. (2/4630)

Dietary and metabolic nitrate is distributed from the blood to the saliva by active uptake in the salivary glands, and is reduced to nitrite in the oral cavity by the action of certain bacteria. Since it has been reported that nitric oxide may be formed nonenzymatically from nitrite this study aimed to determine whether salivary nitrite could influence measurements of exhaled NO. Ten healthy subjects fasted overnight and ingested 400 mg potassium nitrate, equivalent to approximately 200 g spinach. Exhaled NO and nasal NO were regularly measured with a chemiluminescence technique up to 3 h after the ingestion. Measurements of exhaled NO were performed with a single-breath procedure, standardized to a 20-s exhalation, at a flow of 0.15 L x s(-1), and oral pressure of 8-10 cmH2O. Values of NO were registered as NO release rate (pmol x s(-1)) during the plateau of exhalation. Exhaled NO increased steadily over time after nitrate load and a maximum was seen at 120 min (77.0+/-15.2 versus 31.2+/-3.0 pmol x s(-1), p<0.01), whereas no increase was detected in nasal NO levels. Salivary nitrite concentrations increased in parallel; at 120 min there was a four-fold increase compared with baseline (1.56+/-0.44 versus 0.37+/-0.09 mM, p<0.05). The nitrite-reducing conditions in the oral cavity were also manipulated by the use of different mouthwash procedures. The antibacterial agent chlorhexidine acetate (0.2%) decreased NO release by almost 50% (p<0.01) 90 min after nitrate loading and reduced the preload control levels by close to 30% (p<0.05). Sodium bicarbonate (10%) also reduced exhaled NO levels, but to a somewhat lesser extent than chlorhexidine acetate. In conclusion, salivary nitric oxide formation contributes to nitric oxide in exhaled air and a large intake of nitrate-rich foods before the investigation might be misinterpreted as an elevated inflammatory activity in the airways. This potential source of error and the means for avoiding it should be considered in the development of a future standardized method for measurements of exhaled nitric oxide.  (+info)

Decreased IgA1 response after primary oral immunization with live typhoid vaccine in primary IgA nephropathy. (3/4630)

INTRODUCTION: Patients with primary IgA nephropathy (IgAN) have an increased level of immunological memory to certain parenteral recall antigens. We recently found a deficient IgA1 immune response after intranasal challenge with a neo-antigen: cholera toxin subunit B. In the present study, we assessed the specific IgA1 and IgA2 antibody response in plasma, peripheral blood cells and mucosal secretions after primary enteral immunization. METHODS: Twenty eight IgAN patients, 26 patients with non-immunological renal disease and 32 healthy subjects were immunized orally with three sequential doses of live, attenuated, Salmonella typhi Ty21a. The humoral immune response in body fluids and antibody synthesis by circulating B cells was assessed in specific ELISAs and ELIPSAs respectively. RESULTS: Oral immunization resulted in significantly (P<0.0001) increased IgM, IgG, IgA, IgA1 and IgA2 responses in all groups, both in plasma and in circulating B cells in vitro. The IgA1 response in plasma was significantly (P<0.05) lower in IgAN patients, while no significant differences in IgM (P=0.36), IgG (P= 0.79) or IgA2 (P=0.45) responses were found as compared with matched control groups. The amount of IgA1 synthesized by circulating B cells tended to be lower in IgAN patients. No significant IgA response after oral immunization with S. typhi Ty21a was found in saliva (P=0.11) or tears (P=0.10). CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest an IgA1 hyporesponsiveness in patients with IgAN that is not only apparent after primary challenge of the nasal-associated lymphoid tissue but also after presentation to the gut. Previous results after parenteral recall immunization may be explained by assuming that IgAN patients require more frequent and/or longer exposure to IgA1-inducing antigens on their mucosal surfaces before they reach protective mucosal immunity. As a consequence, overproduction of IgA1 antibodies occurs in the systemic compartment, accompanied by an increased number of IgA1 memory cells.  (+info)

Undetectable urinary free cortisol concentrations in a case of Cushing's disease. (4/4630)

Measurement of the 24-h urinary free cortisol is a valuable screening test of endogenous hypercortisolism and, although false positive results may occur in a few situations, for example endogenous depression, false negative results are unusual. We report a case of a 48-year-old lady with pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease, whose 24-h urinary free cortisol excretion was consistently undetectable in association with increased plasma and salivary cortisol concentrations and reduced dexamethasone suppressibility. The patient had chronic renal impairment (creatinine clearance 21 ml/min) as a consequence of hypertension, despite only modestly increased urea and creatinine concentrations. Urinary free cortisol measurements must be interpreted with caution in patients with renal impairment.  (+info)

Pathogenesis of cancrum oris (noma): confounding interactions of malnutrition with infection. (5/4630)

This study showed that impoverished Nigerian children at risk for cancrum oris (noma) had significantly reduced plasma concentrations of zinc (< 10.8 micromol/L), retinol (< 1.05 micromol/L), ascorbate (< 11 micromol/L), and the essential amino acids, with prominently increased plasma and saliva levels of free cortisol, compared with their healthy counterparts. The nutrient deficiencies, in concert with previously reported widespread viral infections (measles, herpesviruses) in the children, would impair oral mucosal immunity. We postulate, subject to additional studies, that evolution of the oral mucosal ulcers including acute necrotizing gingivitis to noma is triggered by a consortium of microorganisms of which Fusobacterium necrophorum is a key component. Fusobacterium necrophorum elaborates several dermonecrotic toxic metabolites and is acquired by the impoverished children via fecal contamination resulting from shared residential facilities with animals and very poor environmental sanitation.  (+info)

Human immunodeficiency virus antibody testing by enzyme-linked fluorescent and western blot assays using serum, gingival-crevicular transudate, and urine samples. (6/4630)

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the possible utilization of saliva and urine as alternative samples to serum for the diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. A total of 302 individuals participated in the study: 187 HIV-infected individuals (106 had Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] stage II infection, 19 had CDC stage III infection, and 62 had CDC stage IV infection) and 115 noninfected persons (46 of the noninfected persons were blood donors and 69 belonged to a group at high risk of HIV infection). Paired saliva and urine samples were taken from each of the participants in the study. The presence of HIV-specific antibodies was detected by an enzyme-linked fluorescent assay (ELFA), and the result was confirmed by Western blot analysis (WB). The ELFA with saliva gave maximum sensitivity and specificity values, while ELFA had lower sensitivity (95.2%) and specificity (97. 4%) values for detection of HIV antibody in urine samples. WB with all saliva samples fulfilled the World Health Organization criterion for positivity, while only 96.8% of the urine samples were confirmed to be positive by WB. Among the four reactivity patterns found by WB of these alternative samples, the most frequent included bands against three groups of HIV structural proteins (was ENV, POL, and GAG). The reactivity bands most frequently observed were those for the proteins gp160 and gp120. The least common reactivity band was the band for protein p17. The detection of HIV antibodies in saliva samples by means of ELFA with the possibility of later confirmation by WB makes saliva an alternative to serum for possible use in the diagnosis of infection. In contrast, HIV antibody detection in urine samples by the same methodology (ELFA) could be taken into consideration for use in epidemiological studies.  (+info)

Human herpesvirus 8 seroprevalence and evaluation of nonsexual transmission routes by detection of DNA in clinical specimens from human immunodeficiency virus-seronegative patients from central and southern Italy, with and without Kaposi's sarcoma. (7/4630)

In order to investigate the seroprevalence of human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) infection in central and southern Italy, sera from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seronegative subjects, with and without Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), were analyzed by immunofluorescence assay, using BC-3, a cell line latently infected with HHV-8. High titers of antibody against HHV-8 lytic and latent antigens were detected in all 50 KS patients studied, while in 50 HIV-seronegative subjects without KS, 32 (64%) were found positive for HHV-8 antibodies. Titers in the sera of these patients were lower than those for KS patients. This data suggests that HHV-8 infection is not restricted to KS patients and that the prevalence of HHV-8 infection in the general population may be correlated with differing rates of prevalence of KS in different parts of the world. In view of these findings, possible nonsexual transmission routes were evaluated. Nested PCR was used to test for the presence of HHV-8 DNA in saliva, urine, and tonsillar swabs from KS and non-KS patients. In KS patients, 14 out of 32 tonsillar swabs (43.7%), 11 out of 24 saliva samples (45.8%), and just 2 out of 24 urine samples (8.3%) tested positive for HHV-8 DNA. In the control group, on the contrary, none of the 20 saliva and 20 urine specimens was positive for HHV-8 DNA; only 1 out of 22 tonsillar swabs gave a positive result. This data supports the hypothesis that HHV-8 infects the general population in a latent form. The reactivation of viral infection may result in salivary shedding of HHV-8, contributing to viral spread by nonsexual transmission routes.  (+info)

Fungal prophylaxis by reduction of fungal colonization by oral administration of bovine anti-Candida antibodies in bone marrow transplant recipients. (8/4630)

Candida overgrowth and invasion constitute a serious threat with a high mortality in BMT recipients. Currently available topical antifungal prophylaxis is largely ineffective, and as resistance to existing, absorbable drugs for systemic use is rapidly developing, new forms of therapy are needed. We investigated the effect of oral treatment of BMT recipients with a bovine immunoglobulin product derived from animals immunized against several Candida species. The natural Candida colonization was first followed in 19 patients to establish the colonization pattern. Half of the patients were found to be colonized prior to transplantation and altogether 72% were colonized at some point during follow-up. Those with a high pre-transplant concentration of Candida in saliva (>100 CFU/ml) remained colonized throughout the BMT treatment period. The therapeutic effect was monitored in two other patient groups. The first group consisted of nine patients, where, due to a low number of primary colonized patients, response in colonized patients was suggestive of a therapeutic effect. In the second group, 10 patients with a high level of colonization (>100 CFU/ml) were given 10 g daily of the product in three divided doses. The results suggest a treatment-related reduction in Candida colonization in a majority (7/10) of patients and one patient became completely negative. As no adverse effects were noted, our findings encourage additional studies in immunocompromised, transplant patients.  (+info)

It is important to reduce poststroke depression (PSD) to improve the stroke outcomes and quality of life in stroke patients, but the underlying mechanisms of PSD are not completely understood. As many studies implicate dysregulation of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis in the etiology of major depression and stroke, we compared the cortisol awakening response (CAR) of 28 admitted PSD patients with that of 23 age-matched caregiver controls. Saliva samples for cortisol measurement were collected immediately, 15, 30, and 45 min after awakening for two consecutive days. Depressive mood status in PSD patients was determined with Beck Depression Inventory and Hamilton Depression Rating Scale. Salivary cortisol levels of PSD patients did not rise significantly at any sampling time, showing a somewhat flat curve. Caregiver controls showed significantly higher CAR at 15 and 30 min after awakening compared to PSD patients even though the two groups did not differ at awakening or 45 min
For clinical applications such as monitoring health status, disease onset and progression, and treatment outcome, there are three necessary prerequisites: (i) a simple method for collecting biologic samples, ideally noninvasively; (ii) specific biomarkers associated with health or disease; and (iii) a technology platform to rapidly utilize the biomarkers. Saliva, often regarded as the mirror of the body, is a perfect surrogate medium to be applied for clinical diagnostics. Saliva is readily accessible via a totally noninvasive method. Salivary biomarkers, whether produced by healthy individuals or by individuals affected by specific diseases, are sentinel molecules that could be used to scrutinize health and disease surveillance. The visionary investment by the US National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the discovery of salivary biomarkers, and the ongoing development of salivary diagnostic technologies have addressed its diagnostic value for clinical applications. The ...
A gel-based proteomics approach was used to screen for proteins of differential abundance between the saliva of smokers and those who had never smoked. Subjecting precipitated proteins from whole human saliva of healthy non-smokers to two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) generated typical profiles comprising more than 50 proteins. While 35 of the proteins were previously established by other researchers, an additional 22 proteins were detected in the 2-DE saliva protein profiles generated in the present study. When the 2-DE profiles were compared to those obtained from subjects considered to be heavy cigarette smokers, three saliva proteins, including interleukin-1 receptor antagonist, thioredoxin and lipocalin-1, showed significant enhanced expression. The distribution patterns of lipocalin-1 isoforms were also different between cigarette smokers and on-smokers. The three saliva proteins have good potential to be used as biomarkers for the adverse effects of smoking and the risk for inflammatory and

Salivary cortisol concentration was determined by an electrochemiluminescence assay. Mixed-effects models were used to assess the conditional effect of group (sedentary ...
You make saliva when you chew. The harder you chew, the more saliva you make. Sucking on a sugarless hard candy or cough drop helps you make saliva, too.. The glands that make saliva are called salivary glands. The salivary glands sit inside each cheek, at the bottom of your mouth, and near your front teeth by the jaw bone.. Normally, the body makes up to 2 to 4 pints of saliva a day. Usually, the body makes the most saliva in the late afternoon. It makes the least amount at night.. But everyone is different. What doctors consider to be a normal amount of saliva varies quite a bit. That makes diagnosing saliva problems a bit of a challenge.. ...
Introduction: HER2/neu, a member of the epidermal growth factor receptor family, has been shown to be over-expressed in some tumors. The purpose of this study was to determine the salivary levels and tissue expression of HER2/neu in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and their correlation with clinicopathologic parameters. Materials and Methods: Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) were used to evaluate the salivary levels of HER2/neu and immunohistochemistry was used to measure tissue expression of HER2/neu in 28 patients with HNSCC and 25 healthy control subjects. Results: The salivary levels of HER2/neu in patients with HNSCC were not significantly higher compared to healthy control subjects. There was no apparent correlation between salivary HER2/neu levels and clinicopathological features such as age, sex, tumor grade, tumor size and nodal status. All HNSCC specimens were positive (membranous or/and cytoplasmic) for HER2/neu, except one sample. Only one
An important thing in our body is the saliva. It keeps our mouth hydrated always without our knowledge. What will happen to our mouth and body if there is no saliva?. The work of saliva is to help us digest the food and it also controls the bacteria and fungi in our body.. Bacteria will increase if the saliva secretion in our mouth reduces. Tongue dryness, gum crack might occur if there is less saliva in the mouth. Let us now understand the truth behind saliva secretion and the reason for less secretion.. Do you want white teeth…? Eat this!!! ...
Two rapid methods for the detection of cytomegalovirus (CMV) in saliva from congenitally and perinatally infected children were assessed by comparison with traditional virus isolation in tissue culture (TC). The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to amplify a 300-bp segment of the CMV gB gene which was detected in ethidium bromide-stained agarose gels. A centrifugation-enhanced microtiter culture method with a monoclonal antibody for the detection of early-antigen fluorescent foci (DEAFF) was also used. Saliva specimens were collected with mouth swabs from children who were between the ages of 1 month and 14 years and who had either prenatal or perinatal CMV infection. One hundred sixty samples were tested by PCR and TC; 65 (40.6%) were found positive by TC, and 58 (36.8%) were found positive by PCR. Although four samples were found positive by PCR and negative by TC, saliva from seronegative and seropositive TC-negative adults were never found positive by PCR. One hundred fifty-two ...
Plants have super intelligence, the Facebook post reads. If you put your saliva on the seed of an edible plant and place it in the soil, something miraculous will happen. The plant will read your DNA and structure its own genetic blueprint to be a superfood based on any deficiencies or requirements that your DNA is signaling.. There is, however, no evidence that adding saliva to a seed before planting it will change the plants genetic make up. A search of the Botanical Society of Americas website, as well as the Botanical Society of Britain and Irelands website, turned up no mention of human saliva modifying edible plants. Had such a discovery been made, media outlets certainly would have reported on it, yet none have, except to debunk the claim.. While plants can be genetically modified, the process is more complex than adding human saliva to the seed. The desired trait must be isolated first, and then a gene gun or biologically engineered bacteria is used to insert the desired trait ...

By measuring circadian rhythm, precursor hormones (DHEA and 17 hydroxyprogesterone), and cortisol levels, the adrenal saliva test can tell you whether you are in the alarm reaction of high adrenal hormones, in adrenal exhaustion, or somewhere in between. Contrary to popular belief, one does not necessarily progress from alarm reaction to adrenal fatigue; adrenal function can jump around between phases, or stay in one phase for years.. The adrenal saliva test also measures total SIgA (secretory antibodies). SIgA levels measure the impact of stress on the immune system. When SIgA is low, it means a person is more susceptible to food intolerances, infections, and other assaults on the immune system. This is important to know when managing your Hashimotos hypothyroidism.. A variety of herbal and nutritional compounds can profoundly influence adrenal function, but they are not the first line of defense. You and your doctor must first ferret out what is causing your adrenal stress and make ...

N2 - Among the different biomolecules found in human saliva, proteins are among the most prominent. Proteins carry out many vital roles in saliva, from enzymatic catalysis to structure. Proteins also have great potential as diagnostic biomarkers, which can be easily collected using non-invasive methods. In order to catalog salivary proteins, and determine those with diagnostic potential for human disease and other health conditions, mass spectrometry-based proteomic technologies have been used over the last decade or more. Using these conventional technologies, several thousand proteins have been identified in whole saliva, with numerous studies identifying proteins with diagnostic promise for a variety of health conditions. In addition, these technologies have been used to identify proteins expressed by microbial communities in human ...

Current evidence on the therapeutic management of primary-2002 SjS patients is based on 9 RCTs (only four including ≥100 patients randomised to drug/PLA), 18 prospective cohort studies (all including ≤30 patients per study) and 5 case-control studies.. For oral topical therapies, available evidence is limited to five studies carried out in SjS patients (only one in primary-2002 patients) and one Cochrane SLR that assessed the management of dry mouth. Xerostomia is a subjective symptom with wide interindividual variation, and a satisfactory output of unstimulated whole saliva in one patient may lead another to complain of symptoms of dry mouth. All studies have shown significant within-group improvement in comparison with baseline subjective oral outcomes. Mechanical stimulation (chewing gum) was associated with increased saliva production in patients with residual capacity, but there is no evidence that gum may have more or less efficacy than saliva substitutes in reducing dry mouth ...
Our bodies make two to four pints of saliva a day. That means that over a lifetime, a person will create enough saliva to fill two swimming pools! So, why is saliva important? Well, theres more than one answer to that. Besides allowing us to give wet willies or make spit wads when we were kids, our saliva has many important functions.. First, saliva aids in digestion. It begins the process of breaking down food and helps us chew, taste and swallow. In fact, without our spit, we wouldnt be able to taste at all!. Additionally, saliva is essential to maintaining our oral health. Our spit contains antimicrobial agents that protect teeth and defend against bacteria. It also contains minerals such as calcium and phosphate that remineralize our teeth, strengthening the enamel.. Your saliva plays an especially important role after eating and drinking. It washes away that extra food and debris left in your mouth that contributes to decay. It also helps neutralize the acids created by bacteria that ...
A multidisciplinary team of George Mason University scientists is developing a saliva test to detect antibodies to COVID-19 and could begin screening student, faculty and staff volunteers as early as this summer. Mason will be one of the first universities to offer COVID-19 antibody research screening for students, faculty and staff. Screening for incoming volunteers in the fall will be coordinated by the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) along with the College of Science (COS). All the different parts of the Mason research ecosystem are bringing their expertise together for this worthy purpose, said Lance Liotta, the lead researcher and the co-director and co-founder of Masons Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine (CAPMM). The goal is to evaluate if saliva can be used instead of blood for ease of screening for COVID-19 antibodies. The project is an extension of an ongoing international collaboration with Italian microbiologists directed by Alessandra Luchini, the ...
With improved usage of unlawful prescription drugs in America, it is now necessary to detect and forestall the drug people from addiction. Drug tests is the process of detecting the existence of drug from the persons biological process.

Employers carry out saliva checks at diverse conditions like prior to using a prospect and soon after a mishap at place of ...
Background Genome-wide association scans for genetic loci underlying both Mendelian and complex traits are increasingly common in canine genetics research. However, the demand for high-quality DNA for use on such platforms creates challenges for traditional blood sample ascertainment. Though the use of saliva as a means of collecting DNA is common in human studies, alternate means of DNA collection for canine research have instead been limited to buccal swabs, from which dog DNA is of insufficient quality and yield for use on most high-throughput array-based systems. We thus investigated an animal-based saliva collection method for ease of use and quality of DNA obtained and tested the performance of saliva-extracted canine DNA on genome-wide genotyping arrays. Methodology/Principal Findings Overall, we found that saliva sample collection using this method was efficient. Extractions yielded high concentrations (∼125 ng/ul) of high-quality DNA that performed equally well as blood-extracted DNA on the

BACKGROUND:. OBJECTIVE: Hundreds of scientific publications are produced annually that involve the measurement of cortisol in saliva. Intra- and inter-laboratory variation in salivary cortisol results has the potential to contribute to cross-study inconsistencies in findings, and the perception that salivary cortisol results are unreliable. This study rigorously estimates sources of measurement variability in the assay of salivary cortisol within and between established international academic-based laboratories that specialize in saliva analyses. One hundred young adults (Mean age: 23.10 years; 62 females) donated 2 mL of whole saliva by passive drool. Each sample was split into multiple- 100 µL aliquots and immediately frozen. One aliquot of each of the 100 participants saliva was transported to academic laboratories (N = 9) in the United States, Canada, UK, and Germany and assayed for cortisol by the same commercially available immunoassay.. RESULTS: 1.76% of the variance in salivary ...

Saliva is almost as unique to each person as their fingerprints. Its texture and quantity frequently change, so there isnt one type thats normal. However, in a healthy mouth, saliva keeps all the surfaces moist. A consistently low level of saliva can spell trouble for dental health.. According to Cathleen Terhune Alty, RDH, writing for RDH Magazine, saliva washes away food debris, reduces the growth of mouth bacteria and remineralizes tooth enamel. Without the protective effect of saliva, the mouth becomes dry and the risk of cavities and gum disease increases. Whats more, people with dry mouth can find chewing and swallowing difficult. They may also develop bad breath, mouth sores and infections.. ...

The very small concentrations of salivary hormones (only 1 - 5% of the total hormone levels that include protein-bound hormone found in serum) necessitate extremely sensitive assay methods. This is a particular issue for estrogens, which are present in very minute quantities in saliva, especially in older populations such as postmenopausal women. ZRT is unique as the only commercial laboratory using extracted saliva testing for estrogens. Extraction removes contaminants that interfere with the assay and concentrates the sample, significantly improving assay sensitivity compared to the direct assay methods available commercially14. In fact, poor correlations between serum tests and non-extraction salivary estradiol assays have unfortunately led to some skepticism about saliva testing. Also, because of the extremely sensitive assays, it is important to avoid blood contamination of saliva as a result of oral injury, therefore tooth brushing must be avoided before collecting saliva for testing. ...

The most of studies on salivary testosterone in children dealt with the onset of puberty in boys [7-9, 13]. Only few reports are available as far as salivary testosterone in younger healthy preadolescent children are concerned, though the first reports on determination of testosterone in saliva appeared as early as in seventies [6]. This is mainly due to the fact that availability of assays with sufficient sensitivity is restricted. In Butlers study [7] salivary testosterone in 84 boys was determined, but only 11 subjects were younger then 10 years. In Albertson-Wiklands study [18] 12 prepubertal boys were examined. In the recent report of Granger et al. [14] 90 boys and 85 girls aging 8-12 years have been investigated for salivary testosterone by adapting a commercially available serum testosterone kit, reaching the detection limit below 1 pg/ml.. In our study of 126 boys and 77 girls the younger age categories were investigated. The youngest age categories numerically overrepresented the ...

Background An adverse psychological environment (e.g. stressful events or depression) has been shown to influence basal cortisol levels and cortisol response to stress. This differs depending on the adverse stimuli, but also varies across individuals and may be influenced by genetic predisposition. An insertion/deletion polymorphism in the serotonin transporter gene (5-HTTLPR) is a strong candidate in this regard. Objective To investigate how stressful life events and depression are associated with diurnal cortisol levels in community-dwelling elderly and determine whether this varies according to genetic variability in the 5-HTTLPR. Methods This population-based study included 334 subjects aged 65 and older (mean (SD) = 76.5 (6.3)). Diurnal cortisol was measured on two separate days, under quiet (basal) and stressful conditions. The number of recent major stressful events experienced during the past year was assessed from a 12-item validated questionnaire as an index of cumulative recent
Xerostomia is estimated to affect 30% of adults over the age of 65. The condition is characterised by a lack of saliva secretion, resulting in a range of health problems. A rise in the concentration of free cytosolic calcium (Ca²⁺) is essential to initiate saliva secretion. We construct mathematical models of saliva secretion and Ca²⁺ dynamics in salivary acinar and duct cells. We investigate how the distribution of K⁺ channels affects the rate of primary saliva secretion. Maximum saliva secretion is hypothesised to occur when a small amount of K⁺ conductance is located in the apical membrane, with the majority in the basolateral membrane. Apical K⁺ channels have since been experimentally located. For a range of applied agonist, the concentration of Ca²⁺ in salivary cells is seen experimentally to oscillate and to travel in waves across the cytosol. We construct a model of Ca2+ oscillations in parotid acinar cells that requires paired oscillations of IP₃. This ODE model ...

A method was developed to facilitate the estimation of Streptococcus mutans levels in saliva. Saliva-contaminated wodden spatulas were pressed directly against an elevated agar plate containing a selective medium. The results were compared with the number of S. mutans per 1 ml of paraffin-stimulated saliva. It was shown that the spatula method gave a good estimation of the level of S. mutans infection. The incubation was also made in expired air instead of 95% N2-5% CO2. The outgrowth was in good agreement with that after conventional incubation. The method is useful in epidemiological studies or in selecting persons at a high caries risk, and when ordinary saliva sampling cannot be done, for example in small children. Compared with conventional saliva sampling, this method requires less time and material at sampling as well as at the laboratory. ...

BACKGROUND: significant frontal cortex dysfunction. It is hypothesised that performance on frontal lobe tasks may be sensitive to induced fluctuations in mood state in non-clinical samples. METHODS: Subjects performed one of two neuropsychological tasks immediately subsequent to a musical mood induction procedure designed to induce either elation or depression. Mood was assessed using self-report measures. Salivary cortisol levels were also measured in an attempt to objectively validate mood induction effects. The tasks used were verbal fluency and Damasios Gambling Game. Two groups of subjects were recruited: a group with previous (subclinical) hypomanic experience (n=23) and a control group without previous hypomanic experience (n=23). RESULTS: The positive and negative mood inductions produced robust and contrasting effects on self-reported mood, but had no significant differential effects on salivary cortisol levels and neuropsychological performance. LIMITATIONS: The findings are restricted by the

Background/Aim: Sampling for salivary cortisol (SC) determination is a pain free procedure and thus useful in the pediatric age group. Our aim was to compare Low Dose ACTH (LDST) salivary test with the classical blood test as well as the diurnal variation in salivary cortisol concentration for the assessment of HPA axis activity of asthmatic children on ICS.. Methods: LDST was performed in 62 asthmatic children (43 males, median age 7.9 yrs) before and after 3 months treatment with ICS. During the test, samples for SC were obtained simultaneously with serum samples (at 0-30-60 min). Patients sampled their own saliva between 09:00 and 21:00 hours (every three hours) for a whole day before and after treatment.. Results: A significant positive correlation was found between salivary and serum cortisol levels at 0 30 and 60 after ACTH administration (R:0.818, p,0.001). Circadian rhythm cortisol parameters: cortisol awakening response, mean level and range of diurnal changes, correlated with serum ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Gender differences in the validity of testosterone measured in saliva by immunoassay. AU - Shirtcliff, Elizabeth A.. AU - Granger, Douglas A.. AU - Likos, Andrea. PY - 2002/8. Y1 - 2002/8. N2 - We rigorously evaluated gender differences in the measurement validity of salivary testosterone. Matched serum, saliva, and finger stick blood spot specimens were collected from 40 (20 males) young adults (aged 18-27 years). Saliva was assayed for testosterone by two independent (isotopic and non-isotopic) immunoassay methods. Serum was assayed by commercially available immunoassay kits for free and total testosterone. An immunoassay was developed for the measurement of testosterone in dried blood spots and is presented in detail so as to be reproducible from this report. Regardless of assay method, salivary testosterone levels are modestly correlated with serum levels for males but not necessarily for females. Blood spot assay results were highly correlated with serum total and free ...
Periodontal disease − Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory response of the periodontium to bacterial plaque deposited on teeth. Porphyromonas gingivalis is most closely associated with periodontal disease. Salivary biomarkers used for diagnosis and prognosis of periodontal disease include inflammation-mediating enzymes, epithelial keratins, immunoglobulins, salivary ions, and hormones.. Levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) are elevated in periodontal disease. AST can be used as a marker to monitor periodontal disease.7 Researchers have developed saliva kits based on an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to specifically detect AST in saliva in 90 seconds with 92% sensitivity and 96% specificity.. Caries activity − Saliva has preventive functions like flushing and neutralizing the oral cavity (called salivary clearance).1 The helpful buffers in saliva are directly proportional to flow rate, meaning that low unstimulated salivary flow rate can lead ...
Researchers have found five molecules, called microRNAs, in saliva that could identify concussive symptoms in children, teens and young adults, according to a new study.. The findings focus on these microRNAs, or fragments of genetic material, that are easily detectable in blood, cerebrospinal fluid and saliva, according to the studys researchers from Penn State College of Medicine.. A test that measures microRNAs in saliva was nearly 90 percent accurate in identifying children and adolescents who had concussion symptoms persisting for at least a month, according to the study published this week in JAMA Pediatrics. That compares to a concussion survey commonly used by doctors that was right less than 70 percent of the time.. As a result of the findings in the latest study, a saliva test may someday be able to diagnose a concussion and predict how long symptoms last, particularly in young people. Concussions most often affect children, teens and young adults who dont usually demonstrate obvious ...
Whereas psychosocial risk factors increase the risk for disease, psychosocial resources reduce this risk. To examine a possible pathway for these effects, the relations between saliva cortisol levels and psychosocial factors were studied in a random sample of 257 men and women aged 30 to 64 years. Saliva samples were collected at home on waking, 30 min after waking, and in the evening. A flatter diurnal rhythm of cortisol, that is, lower deviations between awakening and evening cortisol levels, was related to high levels of psychosocial risk factors (cynicism, depression, and vital exhaustion), whereas a steeper diurnal rhythm was related to psychosocial resources (social support and coping), general health, and well-being (all p < .05). Our results support earlier suggestions that the capacity of the hypothalamic-pituitary- adrenal-axis to dynamically respond to stress is 1 pathway for observed effects of psychosocial factors regarding risk for disease development.

The subjects were instructed to avoid eating, drinking anything except water, brushing teeth, and smoking beginning 1 hour before the test. Basal serum and salivary cortisol samples were collected between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM and the SST was performed subsequently. Stimulated serum and salivary cortisol levels were measured simultaneously at 30 and 60 minutes after intravenous administration of 250 μg of synthetic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH1-24) (Synacthen, Novartis, Basel, Switzerland). Basal and stimulated serum blood samples were immediately centrifuged at 4°C for 15 minutes and the resulting serum was stored at −20°C until use. Serum total cortisol was measured using a Packard Cobra Gamma Counter analyzer with commercial radioimmunoassay (RIA) kits (CIS Bio International, Saclay, France; inter-assay coefficient of variation [CV], 4.7%; intra-assay CV, 4.2%). Saliva was collected by chewing an oral cotton swab (Salivette, Sarstedt, Germany) for 2 to 5 minutes and the samples were ...
The main objectives of this study were to describe and compare the microbiota of 1) deep dentinal lesions of deciduous teeth of children affected with severe early childhood caries (S-ECC) and 2) the unstimulated saliva of these children and 3) the unstimulated saliva of caries-free children, and to compare microbiota compositional differences and diversity of taxa in these sampled sites ...
Oxidative stress leads to many kinds of diseases. Currently, urinary 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is widely measured as an oxidative stress biomarker. There is a specific advantage if saliva can be used as the sample to measure the oxidative stress biomarker, because saliva is much easier to collect than urine. In this study, we investigated the measurement of 8-hydroxyguanine (8-OHGua) as an oxidative stress marker in saliva, by a column switching HPLC system equipped with an electrochemical detector (HPLC-ECD). The 8-OHGua in saliva could be detected as a single peak by HPLC-ECD. The average level of 8-OHGua in saliva was 3.80 ng/mL in ordinary, non-smoking subjects. The salivary 8-OHGua levels of smokers were significantly higher than those of non-smokers. Salivary 8-OHGua may be a useful noninvasive and promising oxidative stress biomarker.
CONCLUSION: The reported results are in line with prior research on hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysregulation in patients suffering from somatoform disorders on the one hand (low cortisol levels) and high cortisol levels in depression on the other. It is remarkable that our sample of patients of whom all received the same diagnosis, i.e., FGD, can be subdivided according to functional gastrointestinal symptoms, which correspond to the two types of cortisol alterations. The data provide evidence for psychobiological subgroups in FGD patients. As a consequence, the predominant symptoms reported by patients with FGD should carefully be taken into account to specify (psychotherapeutic) treatment. ...

Background The composition of the salivary microbiota has been reported to differentiate between patients with periodontitis, dental caries and orally healthy individuals. To identify characteristics of diseased and healthy saliva we thus wanted to compare saliva metaproteomes from patients with periodontitis and dental caries to healthy individuals. Methods Stimulated saliva samples were collected from 10 patients with periodontitis, 10 patients with dental caries and 10 orally healthy individuals. The proteins in the saliva samples were subjected to denaturing buffer and digested enzymatically with LysC and trypsin. The resulting peptide mixtures were cleaned up by solid-phase extraction and separated online with 2 h gradients by nano-scale C18 reversed-phase chromatography connected to a mass spectrometer through an electrospray source. The eluting peptides were analyzed on a tandem mass spectrometer operated in data-dependent acquisition mode. Results We identified a total of 35,664 unique peptides
Is a dogs mouth really cleaner that a humans? Some say yes. Most experts believe youll be no worse for the wear from a smooch from your pooch. Some recent studies show that saliva from a dogs mouth can actually kill certain types of bacteria. Researchers found that dog saliva killed E. coli and streptococcus canis, which are both harmful bacteria, that can make us sick. (Dog Science Review, 2005) When Bow-Wow Newsletter asked a veterinarian about the cleanliness of a dogs mouth, he suggested that we must keep in min that a dogs tongue serves as both a washcloth and toilet paper. (Bow-Wow Newsletter, 2003). As gross as this may seem, mounting evidence shows that dog saliva may have the ability to kill bacteria. In numerous studies, it has been shown that the infection rate for human bites was higher than for the infection for dog bites. The question remains - can dog saliva kill bacteria?. This means that if a person was bitten by another person, the chance of that wound getting infected is ...

Different fluoride formulations may have different effects on caries prevention. It was the aim of this clinical study to assess the fluoride content, provided by NaF compared to amine fluoride, in saliva and plaque. Eight trained volunteers brushed their teeth in the morning for 3 minutes with either NaF or amine fluoride, and saliva and 3-day-plaque-regrowth was collected at 5 time intervals during 6 hours after tooth brushing. The amount of collected saliva and plaque was measured, and the fluoride content was analysed using a fluoride sensitive electrode. All subjects repeated all study cycles 5 times, and 3 cycles per subject underwent statistical analysis using the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test. Immediately after brushing the fluoride concentration in saliva increased rapidly and dropped to the baseline level after 360 minutes. No difference was found between NaF and amine fluoride. All plaque fluoride levels were elevated after 30 minutes until 120 minutes after tooth brushing, and decreasing after
Saliva is a vital body fluid, without it, continued healthy functioning of the oral cavity would not be possible. The multiple functions of saliva relate both to its fluid characteristics and specific components. As a fluid, saliva facilitates mastication, bolus formation, swallowing, lubrication of the mucosa and speech. Specific components of saliva contribute to antimicrobial activity, buffering actions, digestion and the protection and maintenance of mucous membrane.. Its major components, water and mucin, serve as a cleansing solvent and lubricating fluid. In addition it contains digestive enzymes: lingual lipase and ptyalin (salivary amylase), mucins, and electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride). It maintains the normal antimicrobial factors, epidermal growth factor, minerals and buffering systems. It maintains normal balance of the oral flora, protecting mucosa from overgrowth of potentially pathogenic organisms, most notably Candida species. The viscosity of saliva is much higher than ...
Alpha-amylase is widespread among living organisms. Salivary Amylase and Other Enzymes in Saliva, Regina Bailey is a board-certified registered nurse, science writer and educator. In humans, amylases are produced in the salivary glands and the pancreas. Salivary amylase is the primary enzyme in saliva. Salivary amylase breaks starch into a disaccharide called maltose. Salivary amylase is the primary enzyme in saliva. Learn more. As a group, kallikreins are enzymes that take high molecular weight (HMW) compounds, like kininogen, and cleave them to smaller units. Salivary kallikrein breaks down kininogen into bradykinin, a vasodilator. Like amylase, it helps with the digestion process. Amylases are common in plants, particularly in association with the starch stores of seeds and underground perennating organs such as rhizomes, tubers and taproots. The α-amylases occur in animals and include pancreatic and salivary amylase; the β-amylases occur in higher plants. Salivary amylase breaks down ...

The FDA has granted emergency use authorization (EUA) to Rutgers RUCDR Infinite Biologics and its collaborators for a new collection approach that utilizes saliva as the primary test biomaterial for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, the first such approval granted by the federal agency.. The new saliva collection method, which RUCDR developed in partnership with Spectrum Solutions and Accurate Diagnostic Labs (ADL), will allow for broader population screening than the current method of nose and throat swabs.. The impact of this approval is significant, said Andrew Brooks, chief operating officer and director of technology development at RUCDR, who also is a professor in the School of Arts and Sciences Department of Genetics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. It means we no longer have to put health care professionals at risk for infection by performing nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal collections. We can preserve precious personal protective equipment for use in patient care instead of testing. ...
Lower socioeconomic status (SES) is associated with higher levels of life stress, which in turn affect stress physiology. SES is related to basal cortisol and diurnal change, but it is not clear if SES is associated with cortisol reactivity to stress. To address this question, we examined the relationship between two indices of SES, parental education and concentrated neighborhood disadvantage, and the cortisol reactivity of African-American adolescents to a modified version of the Trier Social Stress Test. We found that concentrated disadvantage was associated with cortisol reactivity and this relationship was moderated by gender, such that higher concentrated disadvantage predicted higher cortisol reactivity and steeper recovery in boys but not in girls. Parental education, alone or as moderated by gender, did not predict reactivity or recovery, while neither education nor concentrated disadvantage predicted estimates of baseline cortisol. This finding is consistent with animal literature showing
Every female body is experiencing a cyclical transformation every month. Depending where you are in your ovulation cycle, things change in your body. One of those is the level of estrogen, which increases near your time of ovulation. If we are able to spot this increase in estrogen, we can find out when we are entering our most fertile window - and we can find the answer in a single drop of dried saliva.. When our saliva dries, it causes crystals, but when we have increased estrogen - which happens 4-5 days before the ovulation - the crystals form a fern-shaped form. We can observe this with a dedicated handy ovulation microscope. If we put a saliva on the glass, allow it to dry and then look through the microscope, we can observe different patterns that saliva crystals make. What you would normally see are dots and circles, a full or partial fern or a combination of all the previously mentioned things. This all depends on where you are in your monthly cycle.. However, this might be somewhat ...
Saliva is easily obtainable for medical research and requires little effort or training for collection. Because saliva contains a variety of biological compounds, including vitamin C, malondialdehyde, amylase, and proteomes, it has been successfully used as a biospecimen for the reflection of health status. A popular topic of discussion in medical research is the potential association between oxidative stress and negative outcomes. Systemic biomarkers that represent oxidative stress can be found in saliva. It is unclear, however, if saliva is an accurate biospecimen as is blood and/or plasma. Exercise can induce oxidative stress, resulting in a trend of antioxidant supplementation to combat its assumed detriments. Vitamin C is a popular antioxidant supplement in the realm of sports and exercise. One potential avenue for evaluating exercise induced oxidative stress is through assessment of biomarkers like vitamin C and malondialdehyde in saliva. At present, limited research has been done in this ...

Vitamin or mineral supplements wont solve the weight loss problem. This woman needs foods she can tolerate. A liquid meal replacement may be helpful until she can eat regular food again.. I have had patients with this same problem and have recommended artificial saliva. They tell me it has helped immensely. Patricia Sander, a clinical instructor with the School of Dental Hygiene at the University of Minnesota recommends a formula for artificial saliva. A pharmacist can inexpensively mix it as follows: 20 cc of 0.9 to 4% methylcellulose; 10 cc of glycerin; 60 cc of normal saline. (The 4 percent methyl cellulose will make the inside of her mouth more slippery than the 0.9 percent solution.) This formula can be put in either a spray bottle or squeeze bottle. At first, she may need 4 to 6 drops of the solution at a time. She should use it whenever her mouth feels dry during the day. The frequency of use of artificial saliva may decrease over time.. Commercially prepared formulas of artificial ...
This randomized within-subject, double blind study aimed to compare the effects of a single dose of two different antipsychotics (haloperidol and aripiprazole) on cortisol, interleukin (IL)-6 and hippocampal regional Cerebral Blood Flow (rCBF) in the same 17 healthy male individuals. Subjects received a single dose of haloperidol (3 mg), aripiprazole (10 mg) and placebo, in a randomized order on three study appointments.We measured salivary cortisol levels at multiple time points, IL-6 levels from plasma samples, and resting cerebral blood flow (rCBF), using a pulsed continuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL) sequence (1.5T). We found significantly lower cortisol levels in the haloperidol condition (F(2,32) = 5.78, p = 0.007), than in either placebo (p = 0.013; CI = 0.45, 0.406) or aripiprazole (p = 0.037; CI = −0.520, −0.014). Interleukin-6 levels were also lower following haloperidol (F(2,22) = 4.19, p = 0.048) in comparison with placebo (p = 0.02; CI = 0.14, 1.8), but not with ...
In man the saliva is a more or less turbid and slighty viscid fluid, generally of an alkaline reaction, and is secreted by the parotid, submaxillary,​ and sublingual glands. In the mouth the saliva is mixed with the secretion from the buccal glands. The secretions from the individual salivary glands have their own special characteristics,​ and these are not the same in all animals. In man and many animals mixed saliva, i.e, saliva composed of the secretions of all three of the salivary glands, is an important degestive fluid on account of the presence of the peculiar [[enzyme]], ptyalin ...
