Saliva could be promising biomarker in Alzheimer's research
from Dental Tribune
The World Health Organization estimates that worldwide 47.5 million people have dementia, of which Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause. Yet, the disease is usually diagnosed only at a fairly late stage and diagnosis techniques can be costly and invasive. Now, a study has provided new evidence that saliva, an easily obtained body fluid, could be used to detect changes related to Alzheimer's.
