A new insight into forensic odontology through salivary amylase amongst neurodevelopmental disorders: A review


Author(s): Dr. Seema M

Abstract: Over the last decade, Saliva is being chosen as an alternative to blood and urine. Whole saliva contains mixture of secretions. Saliva is usually deposited in bite marks found in many homicides, assault and other criminal cases. Saliva is often detected in the crime scene along with bite marks or lip prints where the oral cavity may have been involved. Cellular and serological analysis of the obtained saliva is of immense use in identification of the accused. One such component of saliva is Amylase testing. It has been used as a presumptive test for crime scene. Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) are multifaceted conditions characterized by impairments. People with NDD are overrepresented in criminal populations and evaluating them for criminal responsibility can often be a complex task for forensic examiners. Salivary Amylase can be used as a tool to evaluate the mental health of the offender.
