Clinical Trials [411 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 ...

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.

Effect of Glutamine and Vitamin C on Interleukin-6 and Clinical Outcomes in Surgical Intensive Care Unit Patients

Background & Aims. Glutamine is a conditional essential amino acid that was found in reduced plasma amount in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients. The supplementations of glutamine and vita...

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...

Glutamine Codon Usage and polyQ Evolution in Primates Depend on the Q Stretch Length.

Amino acid usage in a proteome depends mostly on its taxonomy, as it does the codon usage in transcriptomes. Here, we explore the level of variation in the codon usage of a specific amino acid, glutam...

The Mesenchymal-Epithelial and Epithelial-Mesenchymal Cellular Plasticity of Liver Metastases with Digestive Origin.

Few data are available regarding the epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) /mesenchymal to epitheilal transition (MET) in the liver metastasis of digestive cancers. The aim of this study was to e...

Structure-Function Relationship of Transporters in the Glutamate-Glutamine Cycle of the Central Nervous System.

Many kinds of transporters contribute to glutamatergic excitatory synaptic transmission. Glutamate is loaded into synaptic vesicles by vesicular glutamate transporters to be released from presynaptic ...

Targeting of glutamine transporter ASCT2 and glutamine synthetase suppresses gastric cancer cell growth.

Glutamine (Gln) is essential for the proliferation of most cancer cells, making it an appealing target for cancer therapy. However, the role of Gln in gastric cancer (GC) metabolism is unknown and Gln...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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 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 6.3.5.5.

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the digestive tract.
