The contributors are members of the faculty at the University of Göttingen in Germany. There are four sections to this monograph. The first, by R. Chilla, discusses the physiology and pathophysiology of parotid secretion in patients with sialadenosis, and in rats treated with a variety of sympathetic stimulants and blockers. Sialadenosis refers to recurrent, painless bilateral swelling of the salivary glands, most often the parotid. This term is used frequently on the continent and less often in the United States.
