OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the bioavailability of polymer-coated and buffered ursodiol (ursodeoxycholic acid) to unmodified ursodiol in patients with cystic fibrosis-associated liver disease or chronic cholestatic liver disease.
II. Compare the differences in pruritus, weight gain, and liver function for both treatments.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Cystic Fibrosis Gastrointestinal Diseases Cholestasis||Drug: ursodiol||Phase 2|
Patients are sequentially treated with 2 formulations of ursodeoxycholic acid: unmodified ursodiol (Actigall) and buffered, enteric-coated ursodiol (Ursocarb). There is a 24-hour washout between each 4-week course of therapy.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
