Presentation Title: Salivary Diagnostics in Neurology: JBR technologies
Salivary biomarkers are urgently required in the fields of neurology and psychology, to provide objective and earlier diagnoses and detection of brain and neurological conditions such as sleep problems, concussions, autism and Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia and Huntington’s diseases. Recently, JBR saliva diagnostics group led by Rai, developed saliva technologies ( Panel of biomarkers) for early detection of brain and neurological conditions. Human salivary biomarkers can 1) help in neurological conditions diagnosis, mainly at the early stage of the disease, when the clinical diagnosis is impossible, which could help in early treatment, 2) monitoring of these diseases, and 3) assess the effectiveness of existing and development of future neuroprotective treatments. In this keynote, i will discuss the diagnostic values of novel saliva based technologies in early detection, monitoring and management of neurology and psychology problems.
