Point-of-care non-invasive biomarkers for personalised healthcare

Buccal and saliva Biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease risk

Point-of-care testing provides portable, non-invasive platforms for accurate and faster analysis, detection and monitoring of disease markers. Buccal cells and saliva are one of the easiest tissues to self-collect non-invasively, but it is the least explored for biomedical purposes. Our research in this area provides an avenue to identify changes in salivary metabolites, proteins and DNA methylation that are indicative of Alzheimer’s disease risk.

Consumer demand for integrated and personalised healthcare is driving the application of genetic-based tests for lifestyle interventions, including dietary choices. Advances in science are enabling the development of technologies that combine genetic, environment and lifestyle data to inform personal health choices.

Commercialisation of products and services is outpacing consumer understanding of the scientific information available, and an inconsistent degree of rigour of scientific evidence underpinning the nutrition-genetics nexus has led to significant uncertainty and confusion among consumers and, potentially, healthcare professionals.

We have established a curated database of nutritional intervention studies of weight loss including genetic markers based on literature research.
