Clinical Trials [394 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...

Potential Targets and Clinical Value of MiR-224-5p in Cancers of the Digestive Tract.

MicroRNAs participate in various biological processes in malignant tumors. However, the mechanisms of miR-224-5p in digestive system cancers are not fully understood. A comprehensive investigation of ...

Dietary glutamine, glutamate and mortality: two large prospective studies in US men and women.

Emerging studies have related circulating glutamine metabolites to various chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer; diet is the major source of nutrients involved in glutamine metab...

1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D regulation of glutamine synthetase and glutamine metabolism in human mammary epithelial cells.

Genomic profiling has identified a subset of metabolic genes that are altered by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25D) in breast cells including GLUL, the gene that encodes glutamine synthetase (GS). Here, ...

Differential inhibition of adenylylated and deadenylylated forms of M. tuberculosis glutamine synthetase as a drug discovery platform.

Glutamine synthetase is a ubiquitous central enzyme in nitrogen metabolism that is controlled by up to four regulatory mechanisms, including adenylylation of some or all of the twelve subunits by aden...

Overexpression of LncRNA PVT1 Predicts Advanced Clinicopathological Features and Serves as an Unfavorable Risk Factor for Survival of Patients with Gastrointestinal Cancers.

Many studies have reported that PVT1 played important roles in diverse cancer types. But the systematic analysis of PVT1 in gastrointestinal cancers has not been inspected. Thus, we aimed to investiga...

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.
