Painful oral mucositis is a common complication after bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Glutamine is a nutrient for rapidly dividing cells and the major energy source for intestinal epithelium. This study tested whether an oral glutamine preparation could decrease the severity of oral mucositis in patients undergoing BMT. Glutamine or a placebo (glycine) were administered from admission until day +28 in 193 BMT patients in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study at a dose of 1.0 g… Expand
Oral Glutamine for the Prevention of Oral Mucositis Associated with High-Dose Paclitaxel and Melphalan for Autologous Bone Marrow Transplantation
TLDR
Around-the-clock administration of oral glutamine may decrease both the severity and duration of mucositis associated with high-dose bone marrow transplant preparative regimens, translating into reduced parenteral narcotic use. Expand
Effect of oral glutamine supplementation during bone marrow transplantation.
TLDR
This study does not support the hypothesis that oral glutamines may offer benefit and further investigation is required regarding clinical tools for determining effectiveness, administration for tolerance and compliance, dosage, and potential of oral glutamine usage. Expand
Glutamine: Beneficial to prevent oral mucositis in Mexican children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia?
TLDR
Proper oral hygiene and an adequate hyperhydration regimen before and during MTX-chemotherapy, as well as the measurement of serum-methotrexate concentrations are likely to be sufficient to prevent oral mucositis. Expand
The Role of Oral Glutamine in Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant
  • B. Storey
  • Medicine
  • Journal of pediatric oncology nursing : official journal of the Association of Pediatric Oncology Nurses
  • 2007
TLDR
Glutamine is described and how it functions, the literature regarding the use of oral glutamine in the prevention of oral mucositis in bone marrow transplantion is reviewed, the administration concerns related to the pediatric setting are discussed, and the importance of the nurse's role at the bedside is stressed. Expand
Oral and parenteral glutamine in bone marrow transplantation: a randomized, double-blind study.
TLDR
Oral and parenteral GLN seemed to be of limited benefit for patients having AUTO or ALLO BMT for hematologic or solid malignancies, and further study of long-term effects of GLN in BMT seems warranted. Expand
A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled study of oral glutamine in the prevention of mucositis in children undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: a pediatric blood and marrow transplant consortium study
TLDR
Glutamine appears to be safe and beneficial in reducing the severity of mucositis in children receiving chemotherapy and strong consideration should be given to include oral glutamine supplementation as a routine part of supportive care of SCT patients. Expand
A prospective, randomized trial for the prevention of mucositis in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
TLDR
Caphosol®, a neutral, supersaturated, Ca2+/PO43− mouth rinse, used in combination with topical fluoride treatments, is superior to fluoride rinse alone in reducing the frequency, intensity and duration of oral mucositis in patients undergoing HSCT. Expand
Treating oral mucositis with a supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse: comparison with control in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
TLDR
The SCPR group had significantly lower mean measures of oral toxicity, peak mouth pain, and disease course duration, and these results warrant confirmation in controlled, multicenter, randomized trials. Expand
Standardized parenteral alanyl-glutamine dipeptide supplementation is not beneficial in autologous transplant patients: a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study
TLDR
The described mode and dosage of glutamine administration did not produce meaningful benefit in autologous transplant patients and it was certainly not cost-effective. Expand
Glutamine supplementation in cancer patients receiving bone marrow transplantation and high dose chemotherapy.
TLDR
Given the available data, randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trials of glutamine-enriched nutrition in patients receiving BMT and high dose chemotherapy protocols are indicated to further define the utility of this amino acid as adjunctive therapy. Expand

Oral glutamine to prevent chemotherapy induced stomatitis: a pilot study.
TLDR
It is concluded that oral supplementation with glutamine can significantly decrease the severity of chemotherapy-induced stomatitis, an important cause of morbidity in the treatment of patients with cancer. Expand
5-fluorouracil and folinic acid-induced mucositis: no effect of oral glutamine supplementation.
TLDR
The supplement was well tolerated with no apparent adverse effects, but failed to have any significant effect on oral mucositis assessed by the patients or investigator. Expand
Oropharyngeal mucositis complicating bone marrow transplantation: prognostic factors and the effect of chlorhexidine mouth rinse.
TLDR
Overall, there was no clinically demonstrable additional therapeutic advantage to the use of chlorhexidine in either reducing the mucositis, controlling oral pain, facilitating oral nutrition, shortening hospital stay, or reducing oral infection with herpes simplex virus. Expand
Clinical and metabolic efficacy of glutamine-supplemented parenteral nutrition after bone marrow transplantation. A randomized, double-blind, controlled study.
TLDR
Patients receiving glutamine-supplemented parenteral nutrition after bone marrow transplantation had improved nitrogen balance, a diminished incidence of clinical infection, lower rates of microbial colonization, and shortened hospital stay compared with patients receiving standard parenTERal nutrition. Expand
Oral glutamine accelerates healing of the small intestine and improves outcome after whole abdominal radiation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that provision of oral glutamine after abdominal radiation supported gut glutamine metabolism, improved mucosal morphometrics, and decreased the morbidity and mortality associated with this abdominal radiation model. Expand
A randomized controlled trial of pentoxifylline for the prevention of regimen-related toxicities in patients undergoing allogeneic marrow transplantation
TLDR
PTX as administered in this randomized study was associated with significant toxicity and offered no benefit in reducing transplant-related morbidity or mortality. Expand
A significant methotrexate-glutamine pharmacokinetic interaction.
TLDR
Glutamine decreases methotrexate systemic clearance, thus exposing the host as well as the tumor to greater methotRexate concentrations. Expand
Effect of a glutamine-supplemented enteral diet on methotrexate-induced enterocolitis.
TLDR
These experiments showed that a GLN-ED significantly improved nutritional status, decreased intestinal injury, decreased bacterial translocation, and resulted in improved survival in a lethal model of enterocolitis. Expand
Oral glutamine reduces bacterial translocation following abdominal radiation.
TLDR
The data lend further support to the hypothesis that glutamine helps maintain the gut mucosal barrier and thereby decreases the incidence of bacterial translocation following bowel injury. Expand
Prophylactic glutamine protects the intestinal mucosa from radiation injury
TLDR
Rats receiving the glutamine‐enriched elemental diet before radiation had a significant increase in jejunal villous number, villous height, and number of metaphase mitoses per crypt, and the presence of an intact gut epithelium was confirmed. Expand
