Further study details as provided by Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, L.L.C.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (enzyme activity) of intraduodenal enzyme (lipase, amylase, and protease) delivery of a single dose of 3 pancrelipase MT 21 capsules in gastric and duodenal fluid samples collected from patients [ Time Frame: Pretreatment and at 15 minute intervals up to 2 hours posttreatment on Day 1 during each treatment period. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of 3 pancrelipase MT 21 capsules containing a total of 63,000 USP units of lipase. [ Time Frame: Time of screening (Day -21) through to the end of the study procedures performed on Day 1 of treatment period 2. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Must have evidence of chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic insufficiency (steatorrhea) confirmed prior to screening
  • Must be able to discontinue treatment with any pancreatic enzyme preparations (PEPs) within 72 hours before admission to the study center for the open-label phase to the end-of-study evaluations (a total of approximately 7 days)
  • If a woman, must be postmenopausal (no spontaneous menses for at least 2 years), surgically sterile, abstinent, or, if sexually active, be practicing an effective method of birth control (eg, prescription oral contraceptives, contraceptive injections, intrauterine device, double barrier method, contraceptive patch, male partner sterilization) before entry and throughout the study and have a negative urine pregnancy test at screening
  • Must have signed an informed consent document indicating an understanding of the purpose and procedures required for the study and willingness to participate in the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Current significant medical and/or mental disease including solid organ transplant, massive small bowel resection, or major gastrointestinal or pancreatic surgery that potentially affect the intestinal absorption and metabolism of fat (excluding severe pancreatic insufficiency with steatorrhea due to chronic pancreatitis or exocrine pancreatic insufficiency)
  • History of or current acute pancreatitis or acute exacerbations of chronic pancreatic disease, or coagulopathy
  • Use of any prescription that can influence gastrointestinal physiology or any nonprescription medication (including vitamins and herbal supplements) except for acetaminophen, oral contraceptives, and hormonal replacement therapy, and local numbing agents, short-acting benzodiazepines, metoclopramide used during the placement of the intubation tube for up to 3 to 7 days before admission to the study center
  • Known allergy to the study drug, pork protein, or any of the excipients of the pancreatic enzyme formulation or to medications used during the placement of the intubation tube (ie, local numbing agents, short-acting benzodiazepines, metoclopramide)
  • Unable to swallow solid, oral dosage forms whole with the aid of a liquid meal (participants may not chew, divide, dissolve, or crush the study drug) and/or tolerate gastroduodenal intubation
