Hypothesis:DCI 1020 capsules are safe and effective in treating exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in CF patients <= 2 years of age. The results of this study are intended to be submitted to the FDA as part of the NDA package for marketing approval of PANCRECARB (DCI 1020).

Study summary:

A large body of data supporting the safety and efficacy of PANCRECARB® (pancrelipase) Capsules is available in patients above age 2. This study is being performed to gather the data to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of DCI1020 in pediatric CF patients (≤ 2 years) with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. This study also takes into consideration an "age appropriate" dosing form. Specifically, the enzymes will be administered orally by opening the capsules and emptying the microspheres into a small amount of applesauce as an example of a slightly acidic soft food such as jelly, jello, etc. for feeding. The results of this study are intended to be submitted to the FDA as part of the NDA package for marketing approval of PANCRECARB® DCI 1020(pancrelipase).

(azithromycin is allowed) - Change in chronic treatment with systemic (oral and IV) antibiotics during the trial NOTE: Study patient may remain on a chronic regimen of systemic (oral or IV) antibiotics (with exception of erythromycin), if he/she started the antibiotics at least 2 weeks prior to study screening, was at his/her usual bowel pattern at the time of screening, and does not stop or change these antibiotics during the study. - Receiving enteral tube feeding during the study - Breast feeding during the study (expressed breast milk may be used, but not feeding at the breast) - Expected inability to cooperate with or be non-adherent to required study procedures - Use of narcotics - Poorly controlled diabetes - Participation in an investigational study of a drug, biologic, or device not currently approved for marketing, within 30 days of screening visit - A medical condition which the investigator deems significant enough to interfere with the ability of the study patient to participate in the trial or interfering with assessment of effects of enzyme therapy on fat absorption
