Phase II Pilot Study to Compare the Bioavailability of Buffered, Enteric-Coated Ursodiol With Unmodified Ursodiol for Chronic Cholestatic Liver Disease and Cystic Fibrosis-Associated Liver Disease
Not Provided

OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the bioavailability of polymer-coated and buffered ursodiol (ursodeoxycholic acid) to unmodified ursodiol in patients with cystic fibrosis-associated liver disease or chronic cholestatic liver disease.

II. Compare the differences in pruritus, weight gain, and liver function for both treatments.

PROTOCOL OUTLINE:

Patients are sequentially treated with 2 formulations of ursodeoxycholic acid: unmodified ursodiol (Actigall) and buffered, enteric-coated ursodiol (Ursocarb). There is a 24-hour washout between each 4-week course of therapy.

Interventional
Phase 2
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Gastrointestinal Diseases
  • Cholestasis
Drug: ursodiol
