Fraza do cytowania: Bekalarska-Dębek M., Dąbrowska M., Surdacka A. Biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease in saliva – a literature review. Dental Forum. 2017;XLV(1):83–87. DOI:

Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder, often leading to the death of the patient. Memory disorders are a  haracteristic symptom of this disease, which are caused by a loss of brain tissue. With the increase in life expectancy the incidence of this disease has increased. This literature review concerns the possibility of the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease based on an analysis of specific protein (Tau protein and Aβ42) biomarkers obtained from saliva.

Key words: Alzheimer disease, saliva, Tau protein, oral health.
