Inflammatory Salivary Gland Diseases

About this Research Topic

Current knowledge on the inflammatory patterns of salivary gland diseases and their related clinical outcome has increased in the last decade. New onset of disease pathobiology, including the definition of IgG4-related disease, emerging clinical treatments, such as sialoendoscopy and electric stimulation of salivary flow, and off-label use of immunobiologics shifted clinicians’ treatment approach and provided new clinical questions to be investigated. Saliva, by itself, is a marker of disease onset and activity. Nevertheless, inflammatory salivary gland disease still lacks a standardized approach to assessment and management.

This Research Topic aims to address innovative research on inflammatory salivary gland diseases and their related systemic outcomes and treatment. Novel approaches on pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of inflammatory salivary gland disease are welcomed. Also, investigations on the systemic impact of these conditions and their effect on the quality of life are welcomed.

Authors are invited to submit their studies including, but not limited to:

- Inflammatory patterns of salivary gland diseases

- Clinical and histopathologic markers of inflammatory salivary gland disease

- Innovative diagnostic approaches

- Salivary gland function to monitor inflammatory systemic diseases activity

- Impact of inflammatory diseases of the salivary glands on quality of life


Keywords: Sialoadenitis, Sjögren’s syndrome, IgG4-related disease, Obstructive parotitis, Oral Diseases, Systemic Diseases


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
