It is well known that the addition of saliva to blood will accelerate its coagulation (1, 2, 7). This property of saliva is not species specific. It has been shown that dog, cat and human saliva will indiscriminately accelerate the clotting of blood obtained from the dog, cat, cow or man (1, 7). Bellis, Birnbaum and Scott (1) noted that while the clotting factor of saliva was stable at 60 " , it was destroyed by boiling at 100 ". Bellis and Scott (2) found that the addition of saliva decreased… Expand

Figures from this paper

Influence of saliva on the results of global laboratory coagulation tests.
TLDR
The finding that APTT was significantly prolonged only when blood was mixed with water could indicate presence of tissue factor in saliva, however, in a concentration too low to influence the results of PT. Expand
Reduction of salivary tissue factor (thromboplastin) activity by warfarin therapy.
TLDR
Inhibition of the TF activity may be involved in the antithrombotic effect of warfarin, and the mechanism by which it inhibits expression of the activity of the vitamin-K-dependent clotting factors is hypothesized. Expand
Cell-derived vesicles exposing coagulant tissue factor in saliva.
TLDR
Saliva triggers coagulation, thereby reducing blood loss and the risk of pathogens entering the blood and postulate that the reflex to lick a wound may be a mechanism to enable TF-exposing vesicles, present in saliva, to aid in the coagulated process and thus protect the organism from entering pathogens. Expand
Salivary microvesicles clot blood.
TLDR
The capacity of saliva to clot blood has been documented in the scriptures, folklore, and in the medical literature of the 1920s when Hunter proposed it as a means to attenuate bleeding from gastric ulcers. Expand
Altered biochemical parameters in the saliva of patients with breast cancer.
TLDR
Salivary TF activity was higher in breast cancer patients than that in control subjects, but the degree of increase was not statistically significant, and decreased salivary LPO may be considered as a risk factor for breast cancer. Expand
Saliva and wound healing.
TLDR
Recognition of the many roles salivary proteins play in wound healing makes saliva a promising source for the development of new drugs involved in tissue regeneration. Expand
