Abstract : Stimulated parotid fluid samples (238) were collected from 32 patients to determine if altered renal function was associated with deviations in salivary protein levels. Of the 32 patients studied, 10 were in the terminal stages of chronic renal disease, 7 were in the oliguric phase of acute tubular necrosis, and 15 had normal renal function. There were no significant differences in parotid fluid protein concentration or minute secretion associated with the state of renal function. (Author)
