Welcome to the May issue of Bhavnagar University's Journal of dentistry for year 2014.

We are all familiar with blood and urine as diagnostic aids to interpret various disease conditions. However, advances in research have shown that our body also has other fluids containing biomarkers that can signify a diseased state.These are tell a tale molecules that can be used to monitor health status, disease onset, treatment purpose and outcome. They play a major role in life sciences and have begun to assume a greater role in diagnosis ,monitoring therapy outcomes and drug discovery.

The oral cavity also contains such fluids that contain useful information and are of diagnostic value. Their testing is relative inexpensive against the amount of data that can be derived from them. Bio-markers of periodontal disease include those in saliva and Gingival crevicular fluid (Gcf). Saliva has a great diagnostic value in areas of toxicology, endocrinology ,inflammation, disease indication and as a measure of immunity. Gcf is the other such indicator where biomarkers indicate the presence/absence of gingival/ periodontal pathways, host inflammatoryimmune response and often assist in early identification of periodontal disease giving us a better understanding of the onset and pathogenesis of the disease so as to allow successful treatment.

They make use of the presence of genomic and proteonomic and microbial bio-markers .Proteonomics for virulence factors from various bacterias and salivary proteonomics for dental caries, existing periodontal disease, malignant and pre-malignant oral lesions, salivary gland disease and lichen-planus.

Newer techniques such as mass spectrophotometry and proteonomics may soon prove the usefulness of these oral fluids as powerful diagnostic tools.

Our invited review contains useful information on saliva as a diagnostic tool in field of dental science and we hope this would be a valuable piece of information for our readers .
