Aceglutamide (INN, JAN) (brand name Neuramina), or aceglutamide aluminum (JAN, USAN) (brand name Glumal), also known as acetylglutamine, is a psychostimulant, nootropic, and antiulcer agent that is marketed in Spain and Japan.[1][2][3][4] It is an acetylated form of the amino acid L-glutamine, the precursor of glutamate in the body and brain.[5] Aceglutamide functions as a prodrug to glutamine with improved potency and stability.[5] Aceglutamide is used as a psychostimulant and nootropic, while aceglutamide aluminum is used in the treatment of ulcers.[6][7][8][9] Aceglutamide can also be used as a liquid-stable source of glutamine to prevent damage from protein energy malnutrition.[10][11][12] The drug has shown neuroprotective effects in an animal model of cerebral ischemia.[5]
