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 […]
