CREON(R) (pancrelipase) Delayed-Release Capsules Improves Digestive Outcomes In Adults With Chronic Pancreatitis
Date:10/26/2009

have been allowed to be marketed as prescription drugs without formal NDA approval. In 2004, the FDA required manufacturers to submit New Drug Applications (NDAs) for all pancreatic enzyme replacement therapies in order to remain on the market. By April 2010, all pancreatic enzyme replacement therapies are required to have approved NDAs and must be manufactured under the new guidelines.

Important Safety Information

Warnings and precautions include fibrosing colonopathy, a rare, serious adverse reaction that has been described in association with high-dose use of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy in the treatment of cystic fibrosis patients. Caution should be exercised when doses of CREON®( )exceed 2,500 lipase units/kg of body weight per meal (or greater than 10,000 lipase units/kg of body weight per day). Care should be taken to ensure that CREON®( )is not chewed or retained in the mouth to avoid irritation of oral mucosa. Caution should be exercised when prescribing CREON®( )to patients with gout, renal impairment, or hyperuricemia. There is theoretical risk of viral transmission with all pancreatic enzyme products, including CREON®. Caution should be exercised when administering pancrelipase to a patient with a known allergy to proteins of porcine origin.

In the clinical study used to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of FDA-approved CREON®, the incidence of adverse events (regardless of causality) was higher during placebo treatment (71%) than during CREON®( )treatment (50%). Treatment-emergent adverse events occurring in at least two patients (greater than or equal to 6%) receiving CREON®( )or placebo were abdominal pain, abdominal pain upper, abnormal feces, cough, dizziness, flatulence, headache, and weight decreased.

CREON®( )has been approved with a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) to ensure that the benefits of the drug outweigh its risks
