|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Psychological stress causes a reduction of salivary flow, it is necessary to assess the stress on diagnosis of xerostomia. There are stress-related biomarkers in saliva. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a correlation between the reduction of salivary flow and salivary stress-related biomarkers. In conclusion, we found a possibility of correlation between stimulated salivary flow and salivary IgA. However, we didn’t find statistically significant correlations of amount nor change ratios between salivary flow and stress-related biomarkers.
