COVID-19 in Saliva

Antibody levels in saliva as a surrogate measure of systemic immunity to SARS-CoV-2

Persistence of serum and saliva antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 spike antigens in COVID-19 patients Baweleta I, et al., (2020) Science Immunology ABSTRACT:While the antibody response to SARS-CoV-2 has been extensively studied in blood, relatively little is known about the antibody response in saliva and its relationship to systemic antibody levels. Here, we profiled by enzyme-linked […]

Saliva-Based Hormone Monitoring for IVF: New Data Presents High Patient Serum-Saliva Correlations for Estradiol

(March 3, 2021) A large, multi-site, international In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Study supported by Salimetrics recently published results indicating potential advances in fertility treatment utilizing saliva samples. In a multi-site study published in RBMO, “A multi-centre international study of salivary hormone oestradiol and progesterone measurements in ART monitoring,” In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) specialists examined whether [...]

Guidelines for measuring salivary cytokines

Best Practice Recommendations for the Measurement and Interpretation of Salivary Proinflammatory Cytokines in Biobehavioral Research Riis J, et al., ( 2020) Brain, Behavior, and Immunity ABSTRACT:Despite the integration of salivary inflammatory cytokines into research across the biobehavioral, psychological, clinical, and health-related disciplines, there is little guidance regarding the biospecimen collection, handling, and storage practices that […]

Salivary Interleukin-6 as a potential non-invasive biomarker for Huntington’s Disease progression

Levels of Interleukin-6 in Saliva, but Not Plasma, Correlate with Clinical Metrics in Huntington’s Disease Patients and Healthy Control Subjects. Corey-Bloom et al. (2020) International Journal of Molecular Sciences ABSTRACT:Growing evidence suggests that inflammatory responses, in both the brain and peripheral tissues, contribute to disease pathology in Huntington’s disease (HD), an inherited, progressive neurodegenerative disorder […]

Increases in adolescent’s salivary cortisol levels may show adolescent-driven stress transmission in families

Daily parent-adolescent cortisol associations: Unpacking the direction of effects. Lippold MA, et al., (2020) Psychoneuroendocrinology ABSTRACT:Prior studies suggest bidirectional relationships between parent and adolescent behavior. This study examined how parents and their adolescent child’s cortisol patterns are associated across days and if there are bidirectional associations between parent and child cortisol. Participants included two samples […]

Improved salivary HCMV IgG antibody assays may be a viable option for serum testing

Correspondence between Cytomegalovirus IgG Levels Measured in Saliva and Serum Riis, JL. Et al. (2020) Journal of Clinical Medicine. ABSTRACT:Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infects more than 80% of the global population. While mostly  asymptomatic, HCMV infection can be serious among the immunocompromised, and it is implicated in chronic disease pathology in adulthood. Large-scale minimally-invasive HCMV screening could […]

Methods for highly sensitive measurement of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA and antibodies from a single saliva sample

Ultrasensitive measurement of both SARS-CoV2 RNA and serology from saliva D Ter-Ovanesyan et al., (2021) medRxiv ABSTRACT: Tests for COVID-19 generally measure SARS-CoV2 viral RNA from nasal swabs or antibodies against the virus from blood. It has been shown, however, that both viral particles and antibodies against those particles are present in saliva, which is […]
