Salivary Bioscience Studies That Have Impact: Getting Back to Our ABCDs

(May 12, 2021) Since being funded in 2015, the Adolescent Brain and Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study has enrolled more than 10,000 children with the objective to study numerous facets of cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development over 10 years. This multi-site, nationwide epidemiologic study is the largest of its type and focus to date. Salimetrics’ [...]
DHEA in Saliva

Robust relationship between DHEA and emerging symptoms of pathological worry during adolescence

Increased dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is associated with anxiety in adolescent girls Mulligan EM, et al., (2020) Psychneuroendocrinology ABSTRACT: The pubertal period is a time of rapid increase in the incidence of anxiety disorders, and thus, pubertal hormones may play a role in the precipitation of anxious psychopathology. DHEA, a steroid hormone that surges in adolescence, has […]
