Abstract

The major lipid components in the saliva of both low and high calculus-formers were free fatty acids, triglycerides, cholesterol, cholesterol esters, and neutral and sulphated glyceroglucolipids. The heavy calculus-formers exhibited an elevated level of free fatty acids, cholesterol esters and glyceroglucolipids. The lipid extracts of saliva from the light calculusformers were considerably richer in triglycerides and free cholesterol.
