G. for long-term studies or for more regular assessment of androgen status in men on testosterone replacement therapy. This, again, would require intensive studies in order to establish the level of salivary testosterone that represents adequate replacement and how to relate this salivary measurement to replacement dose.

Calculating these indices necessitates the measuring of SHBG and albumin concentrations in the same sample. Salivary Testosterone In all probability salivary testosterone reflects a measure of the concentration of free, non-protein-bound circulating testosterone with levels in the 200–400 pmol range. To date it is unlikely that multichannel immunoassay analyzers can adapt plasma methodology to accommodate assays in saliva with such low concentrations and in a non-protein matrix. 0 nmol/l  it would appear that a considerably more sensitive assay would be required.
