|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||An Open Label, Exploratory Study on the Effect of rhBSSL on the Fat Absorption in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Pancreatic Insufficiency|
- The Absolute Difference Between Baseline and Treatment Coefficient of Fat Absorption (CFA) [ Time Frame: Final 3 days of baseline and treatment period ]
The absolute difference between baseline and treatment CFA, i.e. the change from the baseline level.
CFA was calculated as follows 100 x ((fat consumed - fat excreted)/fat consumed).
Fat consumed was determined from the weight of fat of the dietary intake during a 72 hour period during the final 3 days of the baseline and treatment period.
Fat excreted was determined from stool collected during the 72-hour periods and analyzed for fat using the Van de Kamer method.
The unit of CFA is %
