Efficacy of an Oral Formula in Prevention of Anti-cancer Therapy Side Effects

2014-07-24 14:21:53 | BioPortfolio


Anti-cancer treatment is often inducing side-effects that can affect the compliance to the treatment protocol and quality of life of the patients. The researchers will study if the nutritional intervention with the product could abrogate the undesired effects in a preventive manner.

Clinical Trials [438 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Enteral Glutamine in Critical Illness

Glutamine is an amino acid which is rapidly depleted in critical illness. It is used as energy by cells that line the gut, vital for immune system function, and works as an anti-oxidant. ...

A Phase I Study: PET Imaging of Cancer Patients Using [18F] 4-L-Fluoroglutamine (2S,4R)

This is a Phase I study. This study is the first time that a new experimental drug called 18FFluoroglutamine, or F-Glutamine, is being used in people. F-Glutamine is a drug designed to be ...

The Effect of Glutamine on Systemic Inflammation During Human Experimental Endotoxemia

Glutamine levels decrease during severe sepsis; this may be associated with increased mortality. The investigators tested the effects of glutamine supplementation on systemic inflammation ...

Observatory of the Quality of Surgical Procedures for Digestive Cancers

Surgery for digestive cancers is managed according to quality standards, validated by the scientific community. Despite the diffusion of these standards through the benchmarks of good prac...

Assessing Glutamine Metabolism in MGUS and Myeloma

The utilization of glutamine by the bone marrow plasma cells in MGUS and MM will be compared between each other after infusion of 13-carbon labelled glutamine.

PubMed Articles [3008 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Discovery and development of small molecule modulators targeting glutamine metabolism.

Cancer cells have been confirmed diverge significantly from normal cells on the metabolic properties. Energy production in cancer cells is abnormally dependent on the glycolysis pathway and other atyp...

Preclinical study of an F-labeled glutamine derivative for cancer imaging.

The emerging evidence that demonstrated the extra-demand of glutamine for cancer surviving strongly called for the development of PET tracer for imaging glutamine uptake in cancer. In this work, [F]Gl...

Association between MMP-9 -1562 C/T polymorphism and susceptibility to digestive cancers: A meta-analysis.

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play important roles in tumorigenesis. The variant in MMP-9 -1562 C/T (single nucleotide polymorphisms labeled rs3918242) has been extensively evaluated as predisposin...

Incidence risk of various types of digestive cancers in patients with pre-dialytic chronic kidney disease: A nationwide population-based cohort study.

Although renal dysfunction is associated with a higher incidence of malignancies, there is no research on the incidence of specific types of digestive cancer in pre-dialytic chronic kidney disease (CK...

Phospholipase D-Dependent mTORC1 Activation by Glutamine.

Glutamine is a key nutrient required for sustaining cell proliferation, contributing to nucleotide, protein, and lipid synthesis. The mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) is a highly conse...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enzymes that catalyze the joining of glutamine-derived ammonia and another molecule. The linkage is in the form of a carbon-nitrogen bond. EC 6.3.5.

An abnormal passage communicating between any components of the digestive system, or between any part of the digestive system and surrounding organ(s).

An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of fructose-6-phosphate plus GLUTAMINE from GLUTAMATE plus glucosamine-6-phosphate.

An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of carbamoyl phosphate from ATP, carbon dioxide, and glutamine. This enzyme is important in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines. EC

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the digestive tract.
