Plasma glutamine levels before cardiac surgery are related to post-surgery infections; an observational study

Background A low plasma glutamine level was found in 34% of patients after elective cardiothoracic surgery. This could be a result of the inflammation caused by surgical stress or the use of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). But it is also possible that plasma glutamine levels were already lowered before surgery and reflect an impaired metabolic state and a higher likelihood to...

Plasma glutamine levels in patients after non-elective or elective ICU admission: an observational study

Background A low plasma glutamine level at the time of acute admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) is an independent predictor of an unfavourable outcome in critically ill patients. The primary objective of this study was to determine whether there are differences in plasma glutamine levels upon non-elective or elective ICU admission. The secondary objective was to compare...

Time course of the antiproteinuric and renal haemodynamic responses to losartan in microalbuminuric IDDM

Background. Interference in the renin–angiotensin system with angiotensin‐converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors has proven to be effective in lowering albuminuria in patients with insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). We studied whether angiotensin II receptor antagonism reduces urinary albumin excretion (UAE) in IDDM patients, and the relationship between the antiproteinuric...
