In experiments conducted on 903 rats, we studied the biometric characteristics of the major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands) during ontogenesis. We calculated the indices of nondirectional fluctuation asymmetry for the submandibular and sublingual glands and determined correlation coefficients and the coefficients of linear regression between salivary glands, rat body weight, and the weight of the femoral bone (the largest bone in the rat). The strongest correlation was found between the dry weight of the submandibular gland and the rat body weight. Mathematical analysis of the growth of the submandibular gland after sialotomy allowed us to derive a formula for the quantitative estimation of regeneration, taking into account the natural growth of the rat.
