Abstract : The overall strategy in this program comprised the adaptation for use in salivary analysis of a variety of chemical and immunological techniques. Particular stress was given to delineating as precisely as possible the picture obtained by electrophoretic analysis. It was reasoned that for general use, and clinical application, methods as these, which can yield both quantitative and qualitative information, using samples of a reasonable size are most useful. Coupled with this were attempts to isolate individual components, to characterize them, and to prepare specific antiserums suitable for their identification. In addition, since interpretation of clinical findings has to be in physiological as well as biochemical terms, studies of an animal model capable of yielding physiological data concerning protein secretion were begun.
