Inclusion Criteria:

  • Pancreatic insufficiency (PI) documented by fecal elastase <100 mg/gm measured at the Screening Visit
  • Diagnosis of CF based upon the following criteria: *two clinical features consistent with CF; and *either genotype with two identifiable mutations consistent with CF, *or sweat chloride > 60 mEq/L by quantitative pilocarpine iontophoresis.

  • Unable to discontinue enteral tube feedings during the study
  • Subject weight < 40 kg
  • Known hypersensitivity to food additives
  • Participation in an investigational study of a drug, biologic, or device not currently approved for marketing within 30 days prior to the Screening Visit
  • Unable to discontinue the use of pancreatic enzymes for a 72-hour period or any other condition that the investigator believes would interfere with the intent of this study or would make study participation not in the best interest of the subject
