|Abstract: ||This study aims to evaluate the effect of the presence of food and the material used in a panel of biomarkers in saliva of horses.
For the food effect study, clean saliva was incubated with a known amount of food consisting of oats, hay or grass. Significant changes were observed when saliva was incubated with oats for total protein (P = .050) and phosphorus (P = .008), with grass for total protein (P = .037), salivary alpha-amylase (sAA, P = .018), total esterase (TEA, P = .018), butyrilcholinesterase (BChE, P = .037), adenosine deaminase (ADA, P = .037), and total bilirubin (P = .018), and with hay for sAA (P = .018), phosphorus (P = .037), γ-glutamyl transferase (gGT, P = .004), and creatine kinase (CK, P = .016). For the material-based collection study, saliva using a sponge and a cotton role at the same time were collected and compared. Lower values were obtained in clean saliva collected with cotton role compared to sponge for sAA (P = .030), TEA (P = .034), BChE (P = .003), gGT (P = .002) and cortisol (P < .001)
In conclusion, the presence of food and the material used for its collection, can influence the results obtained when analytes are measured in saliva of horses.|
