One Response to Hagen Identifies Proteins Found in Human Saliva Glands

  1. Dr Peter S Aborn says:

    Sir,
    I am interested in your work. If you know Dr. Gerald Graser at EDC he can give you a short history of my background. I now live in Costa Rica. Among other projects I have one ongoing in the Talamanca region helping the indigenous Bribri and Cabecar Indians. We are planning to do a study about the risk factors for caries among these people using an analysis of their saliva. Their caries rate is 12 using the WHO standards. Any recommendations? Read your studies?
    Thank you
