How might prolidase deficiency be treated?

There is no specific treatment for prolidase deficiency. Ulcers may be treated with ointment containing L-glycine and L-proline. Also, dietary supplements with amino acids, L-proline and ascorbic acid, as well as transfusion of red blood cells have been used, but results are limited and variable.[1]
