Abstract

It was studied whether differences in acute radiosensitivity exist between parotid and submandibular/sublingual glands. The results revealed that salivary flow rates decreased dramatically during the first 2 weeks of radiotherapy. Neither recovery nor significant differences were observed between the production of saliva from the parotid and submandibular/sublingual glands during the 13 weeks observation period.
