Pleomorphic Adenoma of Minor Salivary Gland in a 14 year Old Child.

Salivary gland tumours are rare in childhood, and almost all of them occur in parotid gland. Minor salivary gland tumours are even rarer, pleomorphic adenoma being the most frequently found tumour. On...

Glottic-SubGlottic adenoid cystic carcinoma. A case report and review of the literature.

Malignant tumours of minor salivary glands are uncommon, representing only 2-4% of all head and neck cancers. In the larynx, minor salivary gland tumours rarely occur and constitute less than 1% of la...

Biological Markers in Parkinson's Disease

This study will identify abnormalities of a protein called alpha synuclein that is found in the brain of patients with Parkinson's disease and related disorders to see if it can serve as a...

Trial of Radiotherapy and Panitumumab in Salivary Gland Malignancies

Standard therapy for high-risk or locally advanced salivary gland malignancies is surgery followed by postoperative radiation therapy. Retrospective studies have shown the superiority of c...

Salivary Gland Surgery Before Radiation Therapy in Preventing Radiation-Caused Xerostomia in Patients With Head and Neck Cancer

RATIONALE: Moving a salivary gland out of the area that will undergo radiation therapy may protect the gland from side effects of radiation therapy and may prevent xerostomia (dry mouth)....

Gingival Wetness and Gingival Crevicular Fluid Volume in Patients With Dry Mouth

The investigators questioned whether patients with dry mouth complaints display any reduction in residual saliva coating the gingiva and other selected mucosal surfaces. We further intende...

A study for head and neck cancer patients to evaluate the feasibility of combining salivary gland transfer surgical procedure and IMRT helical tomotherapy to reduce dryness of mouth.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A synuclein that is closely related to ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN. It may play a neuroprotective role against some of the toxic effects of aggregated ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN.

Calculi occurring in a salivary gland. Most salivary gland calculi occur in the submandibular gland, but can also occur in the parotid gland and in the sublingual and minor salivary glands.

A homolog of ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN that plays a role in neurofilament network integrity. It is overexpressed in a variety of human NEOPLASMS and may be involved in modulating AXON architecture during EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT and in the adult. Gamma-Synuclein may also activate SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS associated with ETS-DOMAIN PROTEIN ELK-1.

A synuclein that is a major component of LEWY BODIES that plays a role in neurodegeneration and neuroprotection.

Glands that secrete SALIVA in the MOUTH. There are three pairs of salivary glands (PAROTID GLAND; SUBLINGUAL GLAND; SUBMANDIBULAR GLAND).
