Abstract

1. 1. Salivary secretions of the stumptail monkey (Macaca arctoides) were compared biochemically and immunologically with human salivas. 2. 2. Similarities in biochemical composition and antigenic profiles as seen by immunoelectrophoresis indicate that monkey salivas can provide an excellent model system to study the role of saliva in the oral ecology of man.
