This study is to verify the efficacy of 3.0 g/day of SA-001 in patients with pancreatic exocrine insufficiency caused by chronic pancreatitis in the non-compensatory stage or by pancreatectomy as compared with placebo under a double-blind design using the change in a coefficient of fat absorption as a primary endpoint.
