Therapeutic drug monitoring investigations based on saliva samples can be utilized as an alternative to blood sampling for many advantages. Moreover, the development of physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling tools can further help to estimate drug exposure from saliva. This review discusses the use of saliva samples and illustrates the applications and examples of PBPK modeling systems for estimating drug exposure from saliva.
