Subjective reports of xerostomia and objective measures of salivary gland performance.
This study involves collecting saliva under unstimulated and stimulated conditions and asking standardized questions of 100 patients with xerostomia. The study examines which questions are useful inExpand

Xerostomia and the Geriatric Patient
Saliva is essential for the preservation of oral‐pharyngeal health, and disorders of salivary physiology are associated with numerous oral and pharyngeal problems, particularly in older people.Expand

The functions of saliva
Oral health is determined to a considerable extent by our ability to produce saliva. Not only must adequate amounts be produced, but a large number of specific proteins also must be secreted for theExpand

  • 1 February 1987
It is very well established that the principal control of salivary secretion is derived from autonomic innervation. Transmission of a neural signal to a salivary gland acinar cell occurs chemicallyExpand

Human neoplastic submandibular intercalated duct cells express an acinar phenotype when cultured on a basement membrane matrix.
Culture of the human neoplastic submandibular gland intercalated duct cell line, HSG, on the basement membrane extract Matrigel induces dramatic morphologic changes and cytodifferentiation.Expand

Xerostomia: evaluation of a symptom with increasing significance.
Xerostomia is the subjective sensation of oral dryness. Although it is most commonly associated with salivary gland dysfunction, it may also occur with normal gland activity. Xerostomia may be anExpand

Increased fluid secretion after adenoviral-mediated transfer of the aquaporin-1 cDNA to irradiated rat salivary glands.
A replication-deficient, recombinant adenovirus encoding human aquaporin-1 (hAQP1), the archetypal water channel, was constructed. This virus, AdhAQP1, directed hAQP1 expression in several epithelialExpand

Clinical management of salivary gland hypofunction and xerostomia in head-and-neck cancer patients: successes and barriers.
The most significant long-term complication of radiotherapy in the head-and-neck region is hyposalivation and its related complaints, particularily xerostomia. This review addresses theExpand
