Radiation induced cell loss in rat submandibular gland and its relation to gland function.

Abstract

PURPOSE To understand early and late radiation-induced loss of function of the submandibular gland, changes in cell number were documented and correlated with data on gland function. Modulation of the radiation effect by sialogogues was used to investigate possible mechanisms of action. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rats were irradiated with a single dose of 15… (More)
