Brief Summary:

This is a Phase 2 study sponsored by AzurRx SAS and involves testing of a new medication for the compensation of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) caused by cystic fibrosis (CF). The new medication is called MS1819 spray dried (MS1819-SD) which is a lipase produced by the Lip2 gene of Yarrowia lipolytica using recombinant DNA technology.

The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of escalating doses of study drug on top of a stable dose of PPEs in CF patients who are not fully compensated by PPEs only.

This enzyme has demonstrated an appropriate profile to compensate the pancreatic lipase (enzyme) deficiency that is common in CP (chronic pancreatitis) and CF patients.

The design of the study is open-label, meaning that all eligible patients will receive the study drug MS1819-SD. The study drug dose will increase throughout the study during dose escalation visits in each treatment period; study includes a total of three treatment periods.

The total duration of the MS1819-SD treatment phase is of 39-51 days. The total duration of patient participation in the study is of 69-81 days. Approximately 24 patients will be enrolled in this study.

Intervention Details:
  • Drug: MS1819-SD
    Patients will receive increasing doses from the lowest to a maximum dose of MS1819-SD on top of a stable dose of PPEs. The total treatment phase will range from 39 to 51 days.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Coefficient of fat absorption [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    determination of fat absorption based on fat intake and fat excretion over 3 days on high fat meal

  2. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 81 days ]
    AE, SAE, SUSAR, immunoallergic reactions

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Weight of stools [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    evaluation of changes in weight of stools from baseline (PPEs only) to each treatment period

  2. number of daily evacuations [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    evaluation of changes in daily evacuations from baseline (PPEs only) to each treatment period

  3. Steatorrhea, [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    evaluation of changes in steatorrhea from baseline (PPEs only) to each treatment period

  4. Creatorrhea [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    evaluation of changes in creatorrhea from baseline (PPEs only) to each treatment period

  5. Body weight [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    evaluation of changes in body weight from baseline (PPEs) to each treatment period

  6. Consistency of stools [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    evaluation of consistency of stools from baseline (PPEs) to each treatment period

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   12 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Signed and dated informed consent form.
  2. Age > 12 years at the time of screening
  3. Male or female.
  4. Under stable dose of PPE ≥ 1 month. Stable dose is defined as dose of medication not changed during this time period and the medication must be commercially available and be administered in the recommended dose range.
  5. A nutritional status as defined by:

    1. BMI ≤ 22.0 kg/m2 for female patients
    2. BMI ≤ 23.0 kg/m2 for male patients
    3. BMI ≤ 50th percentile for patients 12 to < 18 years of age.
  6. Cystic fibrosis, based on 2 clinical features consistent with CF in the opinion of the investigator AND sweat chloride concentration > 60 mmol/L by pilocarpine iontophoresis.
  7. Faecal pancreatic elastase-1 < 100 µg/g of stools at screening.
  8. Baseline CFA < 80% with a maximum daily dose of 10,000 lipase units/kg/day.
  9. Clinically stable with no documented evidence of significant respiratory symptoms that would require administration of intravenous antibiotics, oxygen supplementation, or hospitalization within the 30 days of screening.
  10. Male and female patients, if of childbearing potential, must use a reliable method of contraception during the study. A reliable method of birth control is defined as one of the following: oral or injectable contraceptives, intrauterine device, contraceptive implants, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, or a double-barrier method (diaphragm with spermicidal foam or jelly, or a condom), abstinence or vasectomy. Periodic abstinence (calendar, symptothermal, or post-ovulation methods) is not an acceptable method of contraception. The preferred and usual lifestyle of the patient must also be evaluated in determining if sexual abstinence is a reliable method of birth control.
  11. Be considered as reliable and capable of adhering to the protocol, according to the judgment of the investigator.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Established or suspected fibrosing colonopathy.
  2. Total or partial gastrectomy.
  3. A history of solid organ transplant or significant surgical resection of the bowel; significant resection of the bowel is defined as any resection of the terminal ileum or ileocecal valve. Patients who have had qualitative, long-term changes in nutritional status after any other bowel resection (eg, increased of new need for pancreatic enzyme supplementation compared with preoperative status to maintain the same nutritional status) should also be excluded.
  4. Any chronic diarrheal illness unrelated to pancreatic insufficiency (eg, infectious gastroenteritis, sprue, inflammatory bowel disease)
  5. Known hypersensitivity or other severe reaction to any ingredient of the investigational medicinal product (IMP).
  6. Bilirubin > 1.5 times upper limit normal (ULN).
  7. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 5 times ULN.
  8. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) > 5 times ULN.
