Saliva to Provide Noninvasive Way to Diagnose Diseases

Abstract:
Saliva or "spit" cleanses the mouth, helps fight tooth decay and, for some scientists at UCLA's School of Dentistry, serves as a potential diagnostic tool to paint an insightful view of the body's health.

"We have developed highly specific, nanotechnology-based biosensors, which will permit the detection of disease-bearing biomarkers in saliva," said Dr. Wong.
