37 Another aspect of arginine’s ability to modulate immune function relates to its effects on tumor development. 38-40 In addition to decreasing tumor growth in these animal models, arginine supplementation has also been noted to 2 26 The Biology and Practice of Current Nutritional Support prolong survival. These findings, coupled with the fact that cancer patients are frequently immunosuppressed, prompted several investigators to examine the potential clinical applicability of administering arginine in this patient population.

Nutrition Support Monitoring TTR a Measure of NDAD We have seen how the use of a short halflife protein, such as TTR can be used alone, or in combination with serum albumin and clinical indicators for identifying serious risk. 9 In some patients who have recieved high dose corticosteroids, the TTR is elevated, but it is possible to trend patients as they receive nutritional support. In these patients it might be argued that urinary nitrogen excretion is done weekly. Nitrogen Loss Nitrogen balance is daily intake of nitrogen minus the excretion.

57 g of free glutamine/kg body weight per day. 2 kg, patients in the glutamine supplemented TPN group received approximately 38 g glutamine per day for an average of 26 days. The mean duration of parenteral 2 30 2 The Biology and Practice of Current Nutritional Support feeding was comparable for patients in the standard TPN group (28 days). 002). 041) even though antibiotic administration was similar in both groups. 017). This study demonstrated that the administration of glutamine supplemented TPN in this patient population resulted in improved nitrogen balance, decreased incidence of infectious complications, and shortened length of hospital stay compared to patients receiving standard TPN.
