Overlap of metabolites detected in clean EBC, saliva-contaminated EBC, and saliva samples of healthy volunteers in Cohort 1. Untargeted metabolomics was performed on EBC and saliva from healthy volunteers. Metabolite peaks were extracted using MassHunter Profinder software (Agilent). Samples were filtered using a 3000 abundance cutoff and a presence in at least two of the three sample groups. A total of 77 metabolites were determined to be unique to EBC
