Abstract : Parotid fluid was collected from 4,589 systemically healthy males between 17 and 22 years of age. Collection devices were placed with an absolute minimum of manipulation, and sampling continued for 90 to 120 minutes. Every effort was made to obtain, as nearly as possible, the unstimulated secretion of the parotid gland. For all 4,589 subjects from the 8 experiments the mean rate of flow was 0.040 ml./minute with an average standard deviation of 0.031 ml./minute. Values are given for 14 variables, including sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and phosphorus. (Author)
