Abstract [en]

Saliva is a biofluid that has not been used extensively as a biomonitoring tool in epidemiological studies. This study presents the arsenic (As) concentrations in saliva samples collected from populations of West Bengal, India. We found a significant (p < 0.05) association between the Log transformed Daily Ingestion of As (μg day-1) and the As concentration in saliva (r = 0.68). Additionally, As concentration of saliva and urine also had a significant positive correlation (r = 0.60, p < 0.05). Male participants, smokers and cases of skin lesion were independently and significantly associated with increase in salivary As. Thus our findings show that saliva is a useful biomarker of As exposure in the study population.
