Lipids in preventive dentistry
Edible oils might qualify as mild supplements to conventional strategies for the prevention of caries, erosion, and periodontal diseases but further research is necessary.
Presence of wax esters and squalene in human saliva.
The Evaluation of Relationship between Salivary Cholesterol, Salivary Triglycerides and Dental Caries in People with Type 2 Diabetes
It was found that there was a significant relationship between decay, missing, and filled teeth (DMFT) and salivary cholesterol, but this relationship was not found between Salivary triglyceride and decay.
Differential cytotoxicity of long-chain bases for human oral keratinocytes, fibroblasts, dendritic and oral squamous cell carcinoma cell lines
Differential cytotoxicity of long-chain bases for human oral keratinocytes, fibroblasts, dendritic and oral squamous cell carcinoma cell lines." MS
The challenges of drug delivery to the esophagus and how to overcome them
While conventional dosage forms such as solutions or suspensions offer the advantage of being available quickly and patient-specific, innovative drug delivery systems address the problem of the short transit time and can thus enable long-lasting exposure.
Characterization of Lipids in Saliva, Tears and Minor Salivary Glands of Sjögren’s Syndrome Patients Using an HPLC/MS-Based Approach
A comprehensive elucidation of the changes in lipid composition in saliva, tears and minor salivary glands in pSS patients may be the key to detecting pSS-related dry mouth and dry eyes at an early stage.
Antimicrobial Activity of Host-Derived Lipids
The present review summarizes the history of antimicrobial lipids from the skin surface, including both fatty acids and sphingoid bases, in multiple human body systems and summarizes their relative activity against various microorganisms.
Sphingolipids and Innate Immunity: A New Approach to Infection in the Post-Antibiotic Era?
The role of sphingolipids within innate immunity, pathogen invasion, and bacterial infection, and possibility for commercial use as an antimicrobial in the post-antibiotic era are discussed.


Glycolipids of the Human Gastric Content
A new sulfated glycolipid has been isolated from the lipid extract of human gastric content by the procedure involving column fractionation on silicic acid and thin-layer chromatography. Degradation
Adsorption of human salivary mucins to hydroxyapatite.
ABH-blood-group antigens and glycolipids of human saliva.
The findings together with data on stomach secretion led to the conclusion that ABH-blood-group antigens of saliva are exclusively of glycoprotein nature.
Lipids associated with dog gastric mucus glycoprotein.
The results suggest that the interaction of mucus glycoprotein with phospholipids involves its nonglycosylated region.
Neutral glyceroglucolipids of the human gastric content.

The composition of saliva is potentially of great importance to the prevention of caries and the effect of nutrition on saliva was reviewed briefly by Krasse.
Streptococcus mutans dextransucrase: stimulation by phospholipids from human sera and oral fluids
Serum, gingival crevicular fluid, and parotid, submandibular, and labial minor gland saliva from four individuals stimulated glucan formation from sucrose by the Streptococcus mutans strain 6715
