Eurand Announces Positive Phase III Clinical Study Results

Company's Pancreatic Enzyme Replacement Therapy Significantly Improved Absorption of Fat and Protein during Clinical Trials

MILAN, Italy and DAYTON, Ohio, April 04, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurand, a global specialty pharmaceutical company, today unveiled data from two phase III clinical trials on its lead product candidate, Zentase(TM), formerly EUR-1008, for the treatment of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).

Many of the current enzyme products contain overfill to compensate for product instability during shelf life, which can lead to variability in dosing. As a highly-stable product, Zentase does not require overfill. Currently, there are no FDA approved PEPs for the treatment of EPI on the market in the US.
