Over the last few years, salivary diagnostics has become a topic of discussion for many researchers primarily due to several advantages that offer over other diagnostic methods. Diagnostic techniques that involve oral fluids are mainly of interest as they are relatively easy to use, lower in cost and non-invasive. This review provides a brief overview of saliva as a best diagnostic tool and how salivary fluid can play a significant role in the early and easy detection of some major viruses such as HIV, HPV, Influenza, Zika and Hepatitis.
