Abstract

Rats were fed a liquid diet with the aim of decreasing nervous reflex activity in the parotid glands. In rats killed after 21 days on this diet the glands were atrophied and the total amounts of the neuropeptides, substance P, vasoactive intestinal peptide and calcitonin gene-related peptide, were lower than in control glands.
