L-Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid and is one of the most abundant of the 28 aminoacids present in the body. Many vital processes of the human body are dependant on a continuous source of L-Glutamine which is derived from diet rich in protein. Only in patients with severe metabolic stress like cancer, the indigineous synthesis of L-Glutamine is not sufficient to meet the requirements of the body. In such cases, L-Glutamine supplementation improves treatment out come by allowing reducing the toxic effects of the cancer chemotherapy drugs by ensuring normal cell proliferation to quickly replace those affected by cytotoxic therapy. Clinical trials have proven that the incidence of radiation- and chemotherapy-induced mucositis is significantly reduced in patients receiving L-Glutamine supplementation during and after radiation and chemotherapy. Thus, L-Glutamine supplementation in cancer patients ensures greater treatment effectiveness and better Quality of Life (QoL).

 

Indications:

  • GLUTAMAC (L-Glutamine) is used to provide protection to cancer patients suffering from glutamine deficiency as a result of physiologic stress produced by the disease as well as the toxic effects of cancer treatment involving chemotherapy and radiation
  • Optimize cancer treatment by ensuring administration of recommended doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation without the need for dose reductions
