About the book
The quest to ensure non-invasiveness in the human healthcare system has pushed the recent advances in diagnostics more towards applications of saliva. Saliva has a lot of advantages over other diagnostic fluids including blood, urine or cerebrospinal fluid. Most importantly, salivary diagnostics have great potential to be used in the early detection and prevention of many human oral and systemic diseases. The recent breakthrough in the development of new salivary technologies concentrates on RNA-Sequencing, bioinformatics and artificial intelligence approaches as well as salivary gland bioengineering to overcome the limitations of the current diagnostic methods. As much can be done to improve the current management of patients by implementing and translating those technologies into the current medical practice.
The purpose of this book is to give a comprehensive update on developing or utilizing innovative approaches and latest best practices to improve and widespread the knowledge about the recent state-of-the-art technological advances in salivaomics.
