Abstract

Amylase levels in body fluids are reported, and it is shown that high amylase levels may occasionally occur in body fluids other than saliva. Low amylase levels are reported in a saliva component which has been previously described as being rich in blood group active material. The use of amylase activity in the localisation and identification of saliva is discussed in detail and guidelines for the interpretation of results are proposed.
