Parotid and whole saliva were collected from 27 healthy adults, from 25 years of age to 30, and from 27 patients with oral ulcer, from 23 years of age to 61. The amount of each Salivary immunoglobulin A was measured by single radial immunodiffusion (SRID) technique. Results were as follows : 1. There was no significant difference between the normal group and the disease group in the concentration of immunoglobulin A in whole saliva. 2. The concentration of immunoglobulin A in parotid saliva of the normal group was higher than the disease group and the difference was statistically significant between the two groups. (p<0.01) 3. The concentration of immunoglobulin A of the parotid saliva in both groups was higher than that of the whole saliva.
