Current Methods for Body Fluid Identification Related to Sexual Crime: Focusing on Saliva, Semen, and Vaginal Fluid
In criminal investigations, body fluid identification is an essential task for correctly applying the results of DNA typing, although further research and development are required.
Characterization of nucleic acids from extracellular vesicle-enriched human sweat
It is demonstrated that sweat, as all other body fluids, contains a wealth of nucleic acids, including DNA and RNA of human and microbial origin, opening a possibility to investigate sweat as a source for biomarkers for specific health parameters.
On the Identification of Body Fluids and Tissues: A Crucial Link in the Investigation and Solution of Crime
The role of body fluid/ tissue identification in the evaluation of forensic evidence is summarized, how such evidence is detected at the crime scene and in the laboratory, elaborate different technologies available to do this, and reflect real life experiences are described.
DNA transfer in forensic science: A review.
Distinct spectrum of microRNA expression in forensically relevant body fluids and probabilistic discriminant approach
The selected microRNAs were effective in identifying the four types of body fluids, indicating that probabilistic evaluation may be practical in forensic casework.
Evidence Collection and Analysis for Touch Deoxyribonucleic Acid in Groping and Sexual Assault Cases
As forensic nurses are educated to accurately collect DNA evidence and provide trauma-informed, patient-centered care, they are best suited to provide nursing care for patients who have experienced groping sexual assaults.
Forensic DNA Analysis.
This review focuses on recent developments in forensic DNA typing. It highlights important recent advances and issues in forensic human identification and identifies representative papers. It is not


mRNA-based skin identification for forensic applications
This study is the first attempt towards reliable mRNA-based skin identification in forensic applications with particular relevance for future trace/touched object analyses in forensic case work and recommends the integration of (one or more of) the skin-targeted mRNA markers presented here into multiplex assays additionally including mRNA markers targeting alternative cell types expected in forensic samples.
Trace DNA: a review, discussion of theory, and application of the transfer of trace quantities of DNA through skin contact.
With this minimal amount of contact required to yield a suspect profile comes tremendous crime solving potential, and a number of considerations for prudent application, and the maximization of evidentiary value.
Statherin, dermcidin および Tamm-Horsfall protein を指標としたELISA 法による唾液,汗および尿の体系的識別法の開発
ELISA for the detection of STATH, DCD and THP could be an effective tool for the forensic identification of saliva, sweat and urine because of its specificity and sensitivity.
