Özet

Objective: Glutamine (GLN) plays an important role in the regulation of acid-base balance, protein turnover, ammonia metabolism, catabolic situations, and immune system enhancement. The prevention, treatment, and care of oral mucosal lesions are very important in terms of leading to several clinical and economic problems. The aim of the present study was to investigate the positive and different effects of GLN on traumatic oral mucosal lesions by its administration via the topical or systemic (enteral and parenteral) route.
