|Official Title:||An Open-Label Cross-over Study to Evaluate the Intraduodenal Delivery of Lipase, Protease and Amylase From Administration of VIOKASE16 in Chronic Pancreatitis Subjects With Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).|
- Evaluation of the Intraduodenal Lipase activity following single dose administration of VIOKASE16 tablets in EPI after a liquid meal. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
- Evaluation of the Intraduodenal protease and amylase activities following administration of VIOKASE16 tablets in EPI after a liquid meal. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

|Primary Completion Date:||February 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
No Intervention: 1
Baseline measurement. No drug with the liquid meal during perfusion procedure to establish baseline secretion.
The Viokase 16 is to be taken as 3 tablets with the liquid meal during perfusion procedure.
Drug: VIOKASE 16
The VIOKASE 16 is to be taken as 3 tablets with the perfusion procedure.
Day of screening: Subjects will undergo screening procedures prior to entry into the study.
Day 0: Subjects will be admitted to the facility. Day 1: Subjects will undergo a first perfusion/aspiration procedure. Day 2: Subjects will rest. Day 3: Subjects will undergo a second perfusion/aspiration procedure. Day 4: Subjects will be discharged.
