Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Body Weight [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change from baseline at day 84

  • Height [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change from baseline at day 84

  • Stool Frequency [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average daily stool frequency during treatment period: Number of bowel movements per day

  • Stool Consistency [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessment of stool consistency by the caregiver on a daily basis: hard, formed/normal, soft, watery

  • Subject's Acceptance of Treatment [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Acceptance to Creon Micro. The caregiver should give his/her opinion based on the following scale: very good, good, moderate, and unsatisfactory.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Pulse [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Change from Baseline at Day 84

  • Number of Participants With Findings During Physical Examination [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A physical examination was conducted by the physician. All abnormal findings were recorded as medical histories if present prior to start of study drug or as AEs otherwise. There was no separate documentation of physical examination findings in this study.

  • Number of Participants With Clinical Relevant Safety Laboratory Values [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    (hematology: hemoglobin, hematocrit, RBC count, WBC count, platelet count; biochemistry: glucose (fasting), creatinine, alkaline phosphatase, total bilirubin, ALAT (alanine amino transferase), ASAT (aspartate amino transferase), gamma-glutamyl transferase, uric acid, calcium, phosphate, potassium, serum pancreatic lipase; urinalysis (dipstick): glucose, blood, albumin, pH)

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: June 2012
Study Completion Date: December 2012
Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Creon micro, minimicrospheres Drug: Pancreatin
Doses of Pancreatin <2500 lipase u/kg/feed or <4000 lipase U/g fat/intake or <10000 lipase U/kg/day given orally are used
Other Name: Creon micro

Detailed Description:
A prospective open-label, multi-center study evaluating safety and tolerability of Creon Micro in pediatric subjects from at least one month to less than four years of age with Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency (PEI) due to Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Referring to the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) pediatric age criteria for the purpose of the study, subjects are categorized as infants and toddlers (< 2 years) and children, (2 years to < 4 years). In total, 40 subjects will be enrolled (20 subjects in each age subgroup). Subjects receive their prescribed pancreatic enzyme supplementation at the individual dose until start of treatment with Creon Micro, if the subjects were on pancreatic enzyme supplementation before start of the study. Subjects will be treated with Creon Micro during the study. The treatment duration is 3 months.

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 4 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Children younger than four years with confirmed cystic fibrosis diagnosis and a body weight of at least 2 kilograms

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Ileus or acute abdomen
  • history of fibrosing colonopathy
  • history of distal ileal obstruction without surgery
  • solid organ transplant or surgery affecting the large bowel, other than appendectomy
