Advances in Salivary Diagnostics [electronic resource] / edited by Charles F. Streckfus
- Introduction -- Salivary Collection Devices and Diagnostic Platforms -- Salivaomics -- Salivary Diagnostics for Oral Diseases -- Salivary Diagnostics for Systemic Diseases -- Salivary Gland Tissue Engineering and Future Diagnostics -- Legal Issues Concerning Salivary Diagnostics.
- This book reviews the progress made in salivary diagnostics and identifies the likely direction of future endeavors. After an introductory section describing the histological and anatomical features of the salivary glands and salivary function, salivary collection devices and diagnostic platforms are reviewed. The field of “salivaomics” is then considered in detail, covering, for example, proteomics, the peptidome, DNA and RNA analysis, biomarkers, and methods for biomarker discovery. Salivary diagnostics for oral and systemic diseases are thoroughly discussed, and the role of salivary gland tissue engineering for future diagnostics is explored. The book closes by considering legal issues and barriers to salivary diagnostic development. Advances in Salivary Diagnostics will be an informative and stimulating reference for both practitioners and students.
