Brief Summary:
Pain relapse during oral refeeding occurs in at least one-fifth of patients with acute pancreatitis. The study hypothesis is that early administered enteral tube feeding might reduce a risk of pain relapse and shorten the length of hospital stay in patients with acute pancreatitis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Pancreatitis Procedure: Enteral tube feeding Phase 2 Phase 3

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 35 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
