Research on the use of saliv in diagnosis of diseases

She investigates how saliva can be used in the diagnosis of diseases and how it can help resolve kidney disorders in urinary tract infections. Discoveries don't wait - they come to us on a daily basis, she claims. In biomedicine, science is developing so fast that we are not even able to realize the incredible pace at which the survival rate of cancer patients has improved.
