Salivary gland tumours are rare neoplasm and do elicit considerable medical interest because of their multifaceted clinical presentation, varied histological appearance and associated difficulties in predicting their prognosis. In the present study, we considered well established histopathology, histochemistry and clinical diagnosis to study the individual salivary gland tumours. Analysis of the cases has been carried out, taking into consideration age group, sex distribution and incidence of tumours in major and minor salivary glands. Details given in this book are very useful for undergraduate, postgraduate students and faculties of Pathology.

Surgical pathologists play a central role in patient surveillance and treatment by surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists. Although salivary gland tumors are uncommon overall, their histopathologic diversity and challenge command the attention of practicing surgical pathologists. Atlas of Salivary Gland Pathology focuses on the diagnostic approach to salivary gland neoplasia—one of the more challenging fields within surgical pathology—emphasizing the need to understand downstream implications with respect to patient surveillance and treatment. The presence of formidable histologic mimicry in salivary gland neoplasia is well-documented in the pathology literature and has also been observed in the consultation practice of the volume editor. This textbook is designed with the needs of practicing surgical pathologists and pathologists-in-training in mind, providing a comprehensive overview of both common and rare salivary gland neoplasms. The primary educational objectives for readers include the following: 1) distinguish benign from low-grade malignant salivary gland neoplasms, 2) effectively use histochemical, immunohistochemical, and cytogenetic studies in challenging cases, 3) understand which diagnoses merit additional surgery and/or adjuvant therapy (radiation, chemotherapy), and 4) enhance pathologist-to-clinician communication in the setting of salivary gland disease.

This work covers effectively all aspects of drug-induced pathology that may be encountered within preclinical toxicity studies. It fills a gap in the pathology literature relating to the preclinical safety assessment of new medicines. It systematically describes, in one volume, both spontaneous and drug induced pathology on an organ by organ basis. Information relevant to understanding the nature of pathological changes in pre-clinical studies and assessment of their relevance to the clinical investigation of new drugs is also covered. Numerous colour photographs are included that highlight and embellish the histopathological features that are described. It also contains many pertinent references to both human and animal pathology forming an essential basis for the assessment of drug-induced pathology. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: * Covers drug induced pathology in preclinical (animal) studies and their relevance for patients or volunteers in clinical studies * General comments to each chapter about the relevance of pathological findings to humans * Provides essential information that can help decide the relevance of particular lesions for patients

Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 28: Saliva and Salivation covers the proceedings of the Saliva and Salivation satellite symposium, which is a pre-congress meeting connected to the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences. The book discusses a wide variety of studies that are relevant to the function of salivary system. This variety includes denervation as a method to produce a prolonged stimulation of salivary glands and reflex activation of the preganglionic fibers innervating the submandibular gland. This text also explains reflex discharge recorded from rat submandibular ganglion cells in vivo and effects of acetylcholine and adrenergic agonist on potassium transport in the salivary glands in vitro. This monograph will be of great interest to professionals and researchers, including dentists and zoologists, whose work concerns oral physiology.

Biology of the Salivary Glands is a comprehensive reference describing the structure, function, and physiology of the salivary glands. Evolutionary diversity, secretory events, molecular genetics, and anatomy are considered. Techniques used in salivary gland research, such as histochemistry and tissue culture, are described. Biology of the Salivary Glands will be a valuable resource for dentists, oral biologists, experimental biologists, anatomists, physiologists, cell biologists, biochemists, molecular biologists, nutritionists, oral pathologists, and all practitioners of oral medicine.
