Glutamine supplementation to prevent morbidity and mortality in preterm infants
No evidence that supplementing preterm infants with the nutrient glutamine improves outcomes. Glutamine is an important nutrient for growth and development.

These trials did not find any evidence that glutamine supplementation affected the risk of death, serious infection,serious gut complications or long term development.
