Indications

INDICATIONS

NUTRESTORE [L-glutamine powder for oral solution] is indicated for the treatment of Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS) in patients receiving specialized nutritional support when used in conjunction with a recombinant human growth hormone that is approved for this indication [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION].

NUTRESTORE and recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) therapy should be used in conjunction with optimal management of SBS. Optimal management of SBS may include a specialized oral diet, enteral feedings, parenteral nutrition, fluid and micronutrient supplements. A specialized oral diet may consist of a high carbohydrate, low-fat diet, adjusted for individual patient requirements and preferences.

Routine monitoring of renal and hepatic function is recommended in patients receiving NUTRESTORE and intravenous parenteral nutrition (IPN), particularly in those with renal or hepatic impairment. Glutamine is metabolized to glutamate and ammonia, which may increase in patients with hepatic dysfunction.

The safety and efficacy of NUTRESTORE have not been studied beyond 16 weeks of treatment.

PRECAUTIONS

Increased Serum Ammonia And Glutamate

Glutamine is metabolized to glutamate and ammonia, which may increase in patients with hepatic dysfunction. Therefore, routine monitoring of renal and hepatic function is recommended in patients receiving intravenous parenteral nutrition (IPN) and NUTRESTORE, particularly in those with renal or hepatic impairment.

Patient Counseling Information

[See FDA-approved PATIENT INFORMATION]

Dosing Instructions

NUTRESTORE should be taken with meals or snacks at 2 to 3-hour intervals while awake. The volume of water may be varied according to the patient's preference. In the event of a patient's transient intolerance to oral intake, a dose may be delayed for up to 2 hours.

Nonclinical Studeis

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment Of Fertility

Long-term studies in animals have not been performed to evaluate the carcinogenic potential of L-glutamine. Studies to evaluate its potential for impairment of fertility or its mutagenic potential have not been conducted.

Use In Specific Populations

Pregnancy

Risk Summary

There are no available data on NUTRESTORE use in pregnant persons to inform a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes. Animal reproduction studies were not conducted with NUTRESTORE.

The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. All pregnancies have a background risk of major birth defects, loss, or other adverse outcomes. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2% to 4% and 15% to 20%, respectively.

Lactation

Risk Summary

Endogenous glutamine is present in human milk. There is no information on the effects of NUTRESTORE on the breastfed infant or the effect on milk production. The developmental and health benefits from breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for NUTRESTORE and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from NUTRESTORE or from the underlying maternal condition.

Pediatric Use

The safety and effectiveness of L-glutamine in pediatric patients have not been established.

Geriatric Use

The clinical trial enrolled SBS patients between the ages of 20 and 75 years. Only 8 of the 41 subjects evaluated were ≥65 years of age. The clinical trial of oral glutamine did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 years and over to determine if they respond differently than younger subjects. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be individualized, because of the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, as well as concomitant disease in this population.

Hepatic Impairment

Glutamine is metabolized to glutamate and ammonia, which may increase in patients with hepatic dysfunction. Therefore, routine monitoring of hepatic function is recommended in patients receiving intravenous parental nutrition (IPN) and NUTRESTORE.

Renal Impairment

Glutamine is metabolized to glutamate and ammonia. Routine monitoring of renal function is recommended in patients receiving intravenous parental nutrition (IPN) and NUTRESTORE.

Overdosage & Contraindications

OVERDOSE

Single oral doses of glutamine at about 20 to 22 g/kg, 8 to 11 g/kg, and 19 g/kg were lethal in mice, rats, and rabbits, respectively.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

None.

Clinical Pharmacology

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism Of Action

L-glutamine has important functions in regulation of gastrointestinal cell growth, function, and regeneration. Under normal conditions, glutamine concentration is maintained in the body by dietary intake and synthesis from endogenous glutamate. Data from clinical studies indicate that the role of and nutritional requirements for glutamine during catabolic illness, trauma, and infection may differ significantly from the role of and nutritional requirements for glutamine in healthy individuals. Glutamine concentrations decrease and tissue glutamine metabolism increases during many catabolic disease states, and thus glutamine is often considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid.

Pharmacodynamics

When glutamine was administered in combination with rhGH to rats, villous height, bowel growth, plasma insulin-like growth factor I, and body weight were significantly higher than in rats treated with either glutamine or rhGH alone.

Pharmacokinetics

The pharmacokinetics of L-glutamine as described below are based on literature data in healthy subjects. The pharmacokinetics in patients with SBS have not been determined. The plasma glutamine concentrations in these patients following oral administration are expected to be highly variable depending on the length, segment, and presence/absence of ileal-cecal valve for the remnant bowel.

Absorption

Following single dose oral administration of glutamine at 0.1 g/kg to six subjects, mean peak blood glutamine concentration was 1028 μM (or 150 mcg/mL) occurring approximately 30 minutes after administration. The pharmacokinetics following multiple oral doses have not been adequately characterized.

Distribution

After an intravenous bolus dose in three subjects, the volume of distribution was estimated to be approximately 200 mL/kg.

Metabolism

Endogenous glutamine participates in various metabolic activities, including the formation of glutamate, and synthesis of proteins, nucleotides, and amino sugars. Exogenous glutamine is anticipated to undergo similar metabolism.

Elimination

Metabolism is the major route of elimination for glutamine. Although glutamine is eliminated by glomerular filtration, it is almost completely reabsorbed by the renal tubules. After an IV bolus dose in three subjects, the terminal half life of glutamine was approximately 1 hour.

Specific Populations

There are no studies to determine the effect of race, age, or gender on the pharmacokinetics of L-glutamine.

Drug Interaction Studies

No drug-drug interaction studies have been conducted. Because metabolism of glutamine is mediated via non-CYP enzymes, glutamine pharmacokinetics are unlikely to be affected by other agents through CYP enzyme inhibition or induction.

Clinical Studies

Short Bowel Syndrome

A randomized, controlled, 3-arm, double-blind, parallel-group clinical study evaluated the efficacy and safety of oral glutamine as a cotherapy with rhGH in subjects with SBS who were dependent on intravenous parenteral nutrition (IPN) for nutritional support. The primary endpoint was the change in weekly total IPN volume defined as the sum of the volumes of IPN, supplemental lipid emulsion (SLE), and intravenous hydration fluid. The secondary endpoints were the change in weekly IPN caloric content and the change in the frequency of IPN administration per week.

All subjects received a specialized oral diet (SOD) for the duration of the study. Following a two-week equilibration period, treatment was administered in a double blind manner. Group A (N=16) received rhGH for four weeks plus oral glutamine placebo for 16 weeks, Group B (N=16) received rhGH for four weeks plus oral glutamine for 16 weeks, and Group C (N=9), received rhGH placebo for four weeks plus oral glutamine for 16 weeks. The efficacy of glutamine was assessed by comparing the cotherapy (rhGH and oral glutamine) to rhGH alone.

After 4 weeks of treatment with subcutaneous rhGH (0.1 mg/kg/d) and oral glutamine (30 g/d) (Group B), subjects with SBS reduced their requirement for IPN volume (-7.7 L/wk), IPN caloric content (-5751 kcal/wk), and weekly frequency of IPN administration (-4.2 d/wk).
