A detailed technical review summarizes and discusses: (1) background information relevant to choosing appropriate doses of tryptophan (Trp) for clinical usage; (2) the toxicity and side-effects of Trp; and (3) both experimental studies on normal subjects and clinical trials in patients. Possible dietary influences on brain function through changes in brain Trp also are discussed. Clinical studies include the effects of Trp on arousal, sleep, pain, schizophrenia, and aggression. Future research needs are identified.(wz)
