Figure 1: Plasmatic levels of glutamine from in patients pre-medicated or not with bethametasone. Plasmatic levels of glutamine were measured before and after the surgical intervention in patients pre-medicated or not with betametasone. The bar graphs show the % of glutumine increase or reduction between the two groups. Each data point is the mean ± S.E.M calculated from the two separate group. Asterisks denote values significantly different (p ≤ 0.05).
