Significant correlations are observed between saliva and blood in evaluating biochemical parameters. Therefore, more and more researchers take saliva test as another important method to monitoring organism biochemical parameters. Besides, more and more researchers in sport and exercise science take saliva test as a convenient and effective method of long-term operation test.


To multianalysis of saliva test as a method of the individual biochemical parameters, including operation, advantages, disadvantages, and feasibility analysis. So this method can be an effective tool to test individual physical condition and mental state.


A computer-based online search of PubMed database ( and CNKI database ( was performed for papers published from 1980 to 2011 with the key words of “saliva, blood, test, indictor, sport, excercise”. Analysis and choosing those papers related to saliva test applied in evaluating biochemical parameters, especially applied in exercise. Published earlier, repeated and similar studies were excluded.


Thirty-one literatures were included and it can be concluded that saliva analysis is a convenient and effective tool for monitoring biochemical parameters. Significant correlations were reported between salivary and blood concentrations including salivary immune-globulin A, cortisol, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone and amylase, and these biochemical parameters have been extensive used. As the development of the research, saliva analysis will be a significant tool for assessing individual physiological and psychological conditions with exercise and training.
