Salivary Testosterone and Cortisol Sport

Interesting Publication from the International Journal of Sports Medicine: Salivary Testosterone and Cortisol measurement in Sports Medicine: a narrative review and user’s guide for researchers and practitioners Abstract Since the initial reporting of salivary hormone measurements in marathon runners in the early 1980s, the practice of utilizing salivary testosterone (T) and cortisol (C) to reflect acute and rhythmic changes to their systemic counterparts has gained considerable momentum. However, substantial variability exists between studies with respect to methodological protocols, laboratory techniques, and interpretation of study findings. These differences can directly influence the salivary hormone values, thus hampering interpretation, limiting cross-study comparison, and constraining the generalizability of individual study findings. This article examines the current body of saliva derived hormone literature before proposing a sequence of practical…

In This Drop- Salivary Bioscience as a building block for the RDoC matrix

For more than two decades, Salivary Bioscience has been unlocking effective interdisciplinary opportunities to engage investigators studying mental health. Salivary Cortisol  has been at the leading edge of this effort and now joins many other salivary analytes and genetic markers as key components in RDoC. The NIMH, Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) initiative is a research framework that enables new ways to study mental disorders. RDoC is designed to integrate many levels of relevant biologic information in order to better understand the relationships between biology and behavior in mental illness. Researchers familiar with the RDoC matrix know that the goal is to provide a resource for “systematic focus on development and the environment – as well as with their mutual interactions – and their individual and…
