Resumen

MESEJO ARIZMENDI, A.; ORDONEZ GONZALEZ, J.  y  ORTIZ LEYBA, C.. Artificial nutrition in hematopoietic stem cells transplantation. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2005, vol.20, suppl.2, pp.54-56. ISSN 0212-1611.

Patients submitted to hematopoietic stem cells transplantation (HSCT) have an increased risk for having hyponutrition, both in the phase prior to transplantation and after this one. The indication of specialized nutritional support is common in allogenic HSCT, whereas patients submitted to auto-HSCT need it in the presence of complications that compromise an adequate nutrients intake. Enteral nutrition through a nasogastric tube has difficulties in these patients; the presence of mucositis delays the indication for enteral nutrition, which usually is poorly tolerated. Thus, frequently parenteral nutrition needs to be used as the route for nutritional support. The use of specific substrates, such as glutamine, is a controversial issue.

Palabras clave : Glutamine; Hyponutrition; Enteral nutrition.
