Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous morphological studies have shown that both the human parotid and submandibular glands display age-related reductions in the proportion of fluid secreting acinar cells. In contrast, short-term functional studies of fluid secretion do not show such a consistent disparity among different-aged persons. This study compared the ability of a… (More)
