Abstract : Parotid fluid was collected from 3,786 healthy young adult males under conditions of very minimal stimulation. Subjects were divided into six DMFS categories, and the flow rate results were analyzed statistically. There was a statistically significant (P < .025) decrease in flow rate with increasing DMFS score. This significance was due to the higher rate of flow found for the 0-10 DMFS group and was not progressive through the other DMFS intervals. While no diagnostic significance can be attached to this observation, the higher rate of flow in minimally involved subjects was remarkably constant in the eight substudies included in this report.
