We analyzed data on pain and well-being as well as health economic data at baseline. Lasting effects of the consultation were analyzed at a follow-up-interview aft...

In early clinical testing, acute addition of alanyl-glutamine (AlaGln) to glucose-based peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluids restored peritoneal cellular stress responses and leukocyte function. This study was designed to test the effect of extended treatment with AlaGln-supplemented PD fluid on biomarkers of peritoneal health. In a double-blinded, rand...

... Workplace Health Promotion Programs aim to support prevention of MSDs and facilitate return to work. Seeking medical help only in acute phases often means that there has already been a reduced work capacity [3]. Concurrently, most of the coordination programs are neither tailored to the workplace nor the individual needs of the employees. ...
... We have previously shown that the addition of cytoprotective additives to PD fluid is a valid strategy to ameliorate the damage caused by PD fluids to peritoneal cells [11,18,[23][24][25][26]. Alanyl-glutamine (AlaGln) has been described to counteract oxidative stress, so we next tested if it can ameliorate the observed effects of exposure of endothelial cells when added to double-chamber fluid (neutral pH). ...
