Brief Summary:
The aim of the trial is to investigate safety and tolerability of an Omega-3-FA-enriched lipid emulsion in adult patients with chronic intestinal failure in need of long-term HPN. It is aimed to show non-inferiority of the lipid emulsion Lipidem (investigational test product) in comparison to the lipid emulsion Lipofundin MCT (investigational reference product) with regard to liver function.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Patients Requiring Home Parenteral Nutrition Drug: Lipidem Drug: Lipofundin MCT 20% Phase 4

  9. Hemoglobin (Hb) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  10. Platelets [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  11. International normalized ratio (INR) (if not possible prothrombin time [PT = Quick-value] is accepted) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  12. Activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  13. Hematocrit (Hct) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

  15. Sodium [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  16. Cloride [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  17. Potassium [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  18. Calcium [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  19. Magnesium [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  20. Phosphate [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  21. Serum creatinine [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
  22. Triglycerides [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
