Furthermore, although subjects were rehy-drated unstimulated salivary flow rates remained sig-nificantly lower than baseline levels.14 Piantanelli L et al reported that the beta-adrenoceptor alteration dur-ing ageing may play a major role in the age-dependent impairment.15 In addition, Kousvelari EE et al sug-gested that the reduction of activity in the pathway responsible for asparagine-linked protein glycosylation may cause age-dependent impairment of the gland activity.16 In contrast, Challacombe SJ et al reported that no significant changes in the secretion rates in parotid saliva were found with age.17
